Particularly evident on German firearms. When you look at scoped German break action guns from earlier 20th century often the mounts are so high and combs so low that it must be impossible to have any kind of cheek weld.
Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
