Need a buttstock comb removed

My Stevens 044 1/2 in 218 Bee is shooting lights out but I can barely see through the scope as the comb is at least an inch too high.  I also have to clean from the muzzle as the ramrod can't line up with the bore from the rear.  I have a hatchet and my horse shoeing rasp so I think it prudent that I ship the wood off to somebody who can lower the comb and have the finished product look as good as it does now.  Any suggestions on who to contact?  Thanks. Tom

Likely an aftermarket stock?  - Got pictures?

Your in California, a lot of people to do this work unless the wood and finish are something that takes an extra special talent. If you can come up with a good stockmaker close you can avoid mailing it.
I know good people but not any close to you. Someone will.

The stock is aftermarket.  It is just too high to get my eye lined up with the scope especially with earmuffs.  I don't have a problem mailing my stock.  The attached group shows how this baby shoots at 100 yards!  Tom

Nice rifle.  Golden age varminter, looks like.  If it was mine, I'd do the work myself.  It isn't that hard.  That way you get it to where it fits your hold and preferences.  Even if you can't get the finish right, you can always send it out once you get the basic height correct.  Then there's no guessing on the part of the stockmaker.

Couple weeks ago I held a CPA with the high comb stock meant for rifles with false muzzles. The owner had installed high scope blocks and a high front sight. I could have shot that rifle all day long. Very very nice. No problem looking through his scope.

I think Joe is on the right track, "high" scope rings should take care of seeing through the scope and a muzzle guard or false muzzle should protect the crown (for cleaning) without damage to the butt-stock.

I thought Tom was talking about the high Pope stock they install on the CPA Schuetzen rifle. Could do the same thing on this rifle. I use BKL riser blocks on my .22 silhouette rifle.

If the risers work a Delrin Cleaning Rod should take care of the other issue. I had a set of those same type of risers here somewhere? but can't seem to find them right now and would gladly send them to Tom to try. I believe I might have left them on my grand daughters Feinwerkbau 2700L smallbore rifle but still looking and as Joe said they should work very nicely. I also had a set of of risers that should fit the scope rings shown I am also trying to find.

I have a Ballard Union Hill in 38-55 that was wiped for to long without dropping the tang sight. It has a gruve warn in the chamber  very  deep at the rim, it does make case indexing fairly easy.   
That said,  I would use a block or jack plane to remove the bulk of the material until comfortable with the hight. Then rasp and sand paper for finishing.  It would make a good rainy day project.

I think I might give it a try.  All I can do is ruin the stock!  The tang has been bent so a stock from CPA is not in the cards.  I had to go with Burris rings with the inserts to get the scope lined up both horizontally and vertically.  I finally gave up shooting at 25 yards and took the buttstock off to foresight.  The rifle has lots of issues but shooting straight is not one of them!  Tom

There are some really good books out there on the subject.  I like Professional Stockmaking by David Wesbrook.  I'll admit my copy has a bit of inletting black on some of the pages...
