    I need to add height to a comb on my 20 gauge 390. I don't want to spend as much as adding an adjustable comb. I have used moleskin before, as well as foam pads.

    I don't need to add much, if any at all, cast on by adding something like the foam pads.

    Are there products besides the foam pads and Wrapidcombs which allow the height to be raised without adding much cast on?

    Cheek-eez pads come in different thicknesses and is a stick-on.

    Shape a piece of styrofoam to fit the comb and attach it with moleskin is about your only solution. If it were me I would go with the adjustable comb.

    how about the shims that go b/w the stock and receiver? Do these work on the 20ga gun?

    Cheek-eez is the foam pad I've already tried. The problem with those is they add 1/8" cast on for every 1/8" rise in the comb. Unless there is a way to start the edge of the pad on top of the comb and secure it with moleskin or something like that.

    Has anyone been successful in adding height but not affecting cast this way?

    Try a shim on the side of the stock between the action & the stock. Should create enough offset to help. Just a piece of matchbook or playing card will help as long as you have clearance on the action tube.

    Danny,
    Southwest Shooters Supply sells what they call their "slimside elevator pad, a stick on Polymer pad that raises the comb 1/4" but is only 1/16" on the sides.
    They also have pads that raise the comb more than that.
    I have used these in the past and they work very well. Dick
