I've never seen shims offered for the Silver but I have heard it said that a shim kit for the Browning Gold Evolve is a perfect fit.

If you can get some Browning shims Maxus/Gold, you can easily alter them to fit your Silver. I used a Dremel and a small round (rat tail) file, very simple fix.
I remember a thread somewhere ? this site or another? that a fellow did the same thing, including pics. Try a search in this forum category, if that doesn't produce try google.
Check Brownells or Numrich for the shims, shipping is more $ than the shims.

I have used the SX3, Maxus, and Gold Sporting shims with a little dremel work on the stock.
