I have a 1885 Uberti High Wall in 45-70 that I am using for BPCR sillhouette. Its a beautiful rifle and very accurate at distances to 500 meters. My problem is that when shooting prone (especially with the tang sight elevated for the longer ranges) the stock is very uncomfortable. Is there any hope for Uberti making a silhouette model with a heavier barrel, higher combed stock and a shotgun butplate?
Where I shoot I see quite a few custom high walls but I think it makes little sense to spend the amount of a custom rifle when the basics of a really quality rifle are so affordable.
Any thoughts or comments???
