Default M1 Garand - How to fit a non-GI face to a GI stock?

Morning Gents, and happy quarantine!

When I get down in prone, and plant my cheekbone on my M1 Garand stock, my eyeball is looking dead center of... the line where the back of the receiver goes down into the stock.

It seems my cheekbones are not General Issue, and sit way too high, causing my eyeball to sit waaaay too low. On an AR I can not use the 1.5" standard height scope mounts, the only thing that works is the nightforce A190, but at least I have something!

I've tried to combat this by placing my cheekbone on my trigger-hand thumb as it comes over the wrist of the stock but that is fiddly and still a bit too low.

Can any of you guys recommend a way to raise up the comb height that preserves the handsome lines of the M1?

I would prefer not to do the drilled kydex adjustable riser, but maybe a nice laced leather job?

Or if you know of a company makes a stock inlet for M1 that offers adjustment to the cheek?

To make matters worse, I'm entertaining a scout-scope set up (leupold fixed 2.5x) with an ultimak which means I'll need another 1/4 to 1/2 inch of rise above what I already need.

Any help appreciated!

Fold a small hand towel with cardboard underneath and fix to the stock with painters tape,or place the butt deeper into the shoulder.

Just don't try to shoot in a JC Garand match with ANY kind of cheek riser. You'll be dq'ed if it ain't gov't issue of some kind. How's the fit of the butt in your shoulder?

Fit in shoulder is fine, I donít really care about scores, I care about shooting well/consistently, but yes I know scopes and risers would be illegal for an as-issued match

Yah, that's also what I was thinking of, something like what the lever-action folks might like, I just didn't what to call it/search for it

Why not do something that's "period correct" - and has a nice look to it anyway; or do you need something more on top of the comb?

Needed on top of the comb

I say ďneededĒ because my Triad Tactical stock pad in OD green came yesterday!

I had to take the included Velcro strips and cut them in half, double stack the halves, and Iím still a little low!

But now I can get firm cheek weld and as long as I drag some cheek-meat with it, itís just about perfect. I should order one of his additional spacers, but conserving Corona cash

There is $1,800 in cheek pads in that pic! Sadly I have a fake on my M1D
