Cheek Bone Bruising

I have a IZH-27 shotgun in 20 ga. I love the gun but after extended firing sessions my cheek bone is brusied. I'm 5'10 and weigh 250 lbs. When shooting I'm having to tilt by head down so that I can see right down the rib if not I'm looking down on the front bead. I have heard that my comb could be too high and this can be fixed by sanding the top of the stock down until the correct sight picture can be established. I'm a little apprehensive in doing this my self because once it's gone you can't put it back. Does any one have any suggestions. I live around the Beaumont area of Texas.

It sounds like you may need a little more drop. Another option that will accomplish the same thing as lowering the stock is to raise the rib. And, unlike cutting on the stock, it can be undone. You can experiment with different thickness balsa wood strips available at hobby shops - 1/8, 3/16, 1/4, etc. Just spray paint it black and attach it to the top of your rib with couble sided tape. When you find the correct thickness you can get an add-on rib, such as an easy-hit, and install it.
