The problem I have is with my Remington 11-87 rifle. I picked it up with a vent rib barrel then swapped it out for a cantilever scope mout, rifled barrel. The stock is the original stock. The present configuration shoots good to a hundred yards when I do my part in warm weather clothes. However I can not get a good cheek weld when i have on my hunting stuff. I am thinking I need to chop the stock an inch or so and add a higher comb so my eye positioned in the correct place.

Not certain where to go from here. Find someone to make a new stock or mod the present one?

I don't know if the stock from and 870 will fit but I do know they made a higher comb stock for some of the rifled barrel models . Perhaps such a thing was done for the 11-87 , I think I'd look at gun parts corp. first .

Failing that chop and glue ............... or have a stock maker do what you want should be easy .

If the problems show up with thicker/bulkier clothes, I'd start with a "Ladies/Youth" length stock just to shorten the LOP. Maybe try adding a cheek pad next. I recall seeing both 11-87 and 870 both in "Ladies/Youth" configuration, but I don't know right off whether the stocks are interchangeable between the two action types.
