I have a Browning Lightning in 16, 20 and 28 ga.  The Drop at comb is 1.5" and drop at heel is 2 3/8".  I have handled Caesar Guerini Sporting Clays guns with 1.45 DAH & 2.15 DAC -- these dimensions do not fit me well with the same lop as I see a lot of rib. I have a chance to buy a CG woodlander at a very good price from a source a couple thousand miles distant. The woodlander is a field gun with the following measurements. DAC 1.45  with DAC being 2.25 .  The woodlander specs seem closer to those of the Browning's 00 will there be a noticeable difference??
Thanks, J

The drop on the gun you are looking at is only about 1/8" less than on the guns you like.  I think you will be fine.  Test it on the impact board and if it is too high, you can have it bent down quite easily for about $150.

Are the length of pull the same between the CG wood and the Browning.  If so you should be fine.

There's no way to know for sure. Make sure a return is possible, then ask yourself whether it's a worthwhile gamble should you have to pay for roundtrip shipping.

There is more to gun fit and dimensions than just numbers.  A gun with a narrow comb will generally require less drop than a gun with a full, rounded comb.  This will also affect cast.  You aren't really going to know until you get a chance to handle it and/or shoot it.

Thanks All!  I will make arrangements for an inspection period if possible -- Canadian dealers usually do not offer that service. I don't mind paying shipping both ways as it's under $20.00 via post -- we don't have to go thru FFL's here -- just pop it in the mail.
Again -- thanks, John
