DROP OF GUN STOCK—What is meant by the “drop of stock” as applied to guns? How is the drop determined and how can one tell whether the stock has the proper drop?
To determine the drop, lay a straight edge on the rib of the gun, or on the barrel if a single gun and measure between the butt of the gun and the straight edge. Measurements are usually taken at comb and heel. High grade guns which are made to order will be given any drop desired. Try aiming with various guns and the one which fits you best has the best drop.
