Try getting a Beretta Gel Comb Pad. Easy to put on and take off and inexpensive.

Don't know about the Remington synthetic stock.The Jack West synthetic stock has an adjustable comb. It cost more, but it's worth it. The best cheap fix is adding layers of moleskin which is available at any drug store. This method is used.by two NSCA national champions, Brad Kidd and Corey Kruse.

last year I bought an 1100 Competition Synthetic that comes with a Jack West stock as standard. The comment above by dickgtax is correct. Really good stock.

Were you told why you need to raise the comb?

Is the present lower comb causing any problems? For example, are you shooting under a lot of targets?

If you answered yes, how can you tell?

Will the gun be used for any other shooting disciplines besides trap, like skeet or sporting clays?

When you put your cheek snugly on the comb, can you see along the rib or does the receiver block your vision of the rib?

Do you see any rib surface with the gun mounted with snug cheek pressure on the comb?

With the gun mounted, do you need to lean your neck forward to put your cheek on the comb? If you do, try raising your gun mount so as much as an inch of the recoil pad extends above your collarbone. It may change the height of your eye slightly, relative to the rib.

Edit:

Before doing anything use moleskin to temporarily raise the comb., assuming that you are convinced it needs to be raised. Also know that if you raise the comb, you will need to shoot under trap's rising targets to break them.

More about that depending on your answers to the questions above.

You can get a Jack West synthetic stock and matching forend that has a 4 way adjustable comb and Limbsaver pad
for $210. I've been using one for 5 years. It's well worth the cost. You're going to want an adjustable comb eventually. Also to correct
a previous post, a a gun that shoots high allows you to shoot directly at a rising target, not under it. The higher point of aim compensates for the rise in the target.
