I you have wood working skills you can try to scratch build a wood comb riser like on the Enfield Sniper rifle for an old school look.

Here's another option: BlackHawk 90CP00 - Rifle Stock Cheek Pad in black. Also available in OD green but a little harder to find.

tried my CAA riser, no go, it could work if i heated it up and made it a bit thinner.


And na on that one, i guess im stuck with that 50 one or just not using one.

Hello jinggoy1967 !

Where / who sells the Karsten piece ?

The only info listed is Karsten@xmission.com - it is not sold retail ?

I have a a leftover cheek riser from a ATI Drag-Style stock.
Am considering carving into my Monte-Carlo ATI stock to fit the cheek piece into.
Has anyone tried this before? I may have the guts to take a router to it !

Related question, where can someone buy Zytel (or a facsimile) so I can
epoxy a carved plastic riser to my Monte-Carlo?

Below is a pic to show what I am trying to make happen:

I might be able to fit the "Fiberforce" cheek piece into the Monte Carlo.
If needed I will post any progress on a seperate thread.

This is a universal cheek rest that I have used.

Hello!

I would consider a leather cheek piece, but since I hunt in the rain that is not an option.

I've got one of these and didn't like it, couldn't get it tied down tight enough to keep it from moving. Even when I came close the foam piece at the top moved around too much.

the problem with most of these is that you arnt getting on scope with these, its a cheek rest and a slight riser, but for the ones that have a bsquare mount you will know what i mean

Hello!

Does anybody here have experience with Lexan or fiberglas ?

I may attempt to make my own version of the Karsten piece:

Sorry for the late reply.

Check out knifekits.com. They sell Kydex in different sizes and thicknesses. You can use a heat gun to soften and shape the Kydex to your needs.

I use these at my shop. here is my SKS. I dont like to drill my stock on my Milsurp Guns so I fabricated this.

I bought this Cheekrest http://www.e-gunparts.com/DisplayAd.asp?chrProductSKU=197640A&chrSuperSKU=197640&MC=

I filled the holes with resin, then painted it with texture paint. The cheek rest is attached via industrial strength velcro.
