Rolling Block Long Range target rifle stock dimensions

Post by jhawes71 » Sat Dec 10, 2016 10:37 am

Hello everyone. I'm preparing for building a custom Rolling Block Long Range target rifle and need some information on stock dimensions.

What is the drop of the comb at the front and rear of the buttstock, measured from the top of the receiver?

How long is the forearm, and how far forward from the receiver is the forearm screw/stud located?

Any information is greatly appreciated.

I have buried in my safe a Pedersoli John Bodine rolling block .I find the stock is way to low at the but when shooting prone at 900 and 1000 yards .Have had the stock slip down under my arm pit many times . A taller comb and butt would help a lot .

I don't know if target rifle has any rules about drop but silhouette does. If you ever want to shoot that competitively, your comb must be 3/4" from the centerline of the bore. Beyond that, build what fits you, not what other rifles have.

if you shoot the supine position the comb must be quite low.
many old roller long range rifles demonstrate this.
