Default shims under M1 trigger housing

When shooting matches that are "as issued", are shims allowed under the trigger housing to help tighten the lockup? I was eye balling the ones off of RC Arms. I'm trying to make sure I am complying with the spirit of the match, but don't really want to swap out stocks. Thanks for help!

Sorry, no shims allowed in as-issued matches.

4.2.2 As-Issued M1 Garand
The rifle must be a Caliber .30 U. S. M1 Garand rifle that was issued by the
U.S. Armed Forces and be in as-issued condition. A Caliber .30 M1941
Johnson rifle or a U.S. Carbine Caliber .30 M1 may be fired in matches
designated as M1 Garand matches.
a) Rifles must be as issued by the U.S. Armed Forces, with standard stock
and sights;
b) Trigger pulls may not be less than 4.5 lbs., except that the M1941
Johnson may have a trigger pull of not less than 3.5 lbs.;
c) National Match (NM) Garands with synthetic bedding or NM sights may
not be used. NM rifles with no synthetic bedding or no NM sights or
other rifles with NM operating rods or NM gas cylinders may be used;
d) The use of shims made of any material in the action and barrel bedding
areas of the stock is prohibited;

e) As-issued M1 Garands must be chambered for the .30-06 cartridge. No
rifles chambered for the 7.62mm NATO (.308) cartridge may be used;
f) M1C and M1D Garands, with telescopes detached, are considered asissued
M1 Garands, provided that they comply with other requirements
for As-Issued M1 Garands. Cheek pads may not be used on these or
other M1 Garands; and
g) M1 Garand or M1941 Johnson rifles may not weigh more than 9.75 lbs.

Thanks Craftsman, I even read through the riles, not sure how I missed that. Kind of a bummer if I need to find a new stock to use, unless someone has some way of tightening the lockup and still being in compliance of the rules.

A distinction can be made between stock modifications and stock repairs.
