I have a Browning Gold Hunter with synthetic stock. I would like to lower the stock to get a better fit. It doesn't look like I can jury rig it with a spacer (can I ?), so I'm trying to find a wooden stock that I could shave but I have not had any success in locating one. I"ve talked to Browning - no help, and checked Boyds website and they don't appear to have a replacement/after-market option. Suggestions?

Welcome to SGW. Did you try your shims to adjust the stock?

What shims? Don't recall seeing/getting any with the gun.

Is it the height of the comb you want to lower to better align your eye with the rib or the butt to allow a more upright shooting posture?

Lower the comb for better eye alignment with the rib.

You could also install an add-on rib that mounts on top of your existing rib. They cost about $100 and are attached using double sided tape (and can be removed if you sell the gun).

Experiment with the height you need by taping a strip of balsa to your existing rib. You want snug cheek pressure on the comb.

(Life ain't easy for those of us with low cheekbones.)

Interesting approach...I"ll give it a try. Thanks. Do you know if shims are available for this stock?

You can get shims from Browning.

Called Browning...no shims available for this gun... If another shim would work, I'd be willing to try it...
