    Default Shim .002"- .003"

    For those times when just a little more would make it fit just right:

    The kind with the paper backing that peels off. The adhesive is good for holding it in place when screw or press fitting.

    Oh ya. I use that stuff for lots of things. Good stuff. One other thing it is good for is protecting your gun's finish when you are working on it.
