    By placing a shim between the receiver and the stock, the angle of the comb will no longer be parallel with the barrel. An inconsistent gun mount will give very different sight pictures with this arrangement. Also, the area of the comb in front of your head would tent to be push back into your face and the gun would tend to move into your face because of the angle of the comb to the barrel.

    A good shim made from auto body filler or epoxy should protect the stock from cracking, but it will still crack your head.

    I would suggest an adjustable stock.

    i have tried in the past to do this on a bt99 without good results. usually shims work on pumps, semi autos, or on the remington 90T.
