Can an adjustable cheek raiser be added to this stock? If so who can do it?
Yes, an adjustable cheek can be installed on this type of stock, but the cost will be more than you paid for the gun;;;; Bandsaw time, lathe, milling machine, fixtures ext-----& so on. Also the stock had to be re-enforced on the top strap over the thumb which was quite the job at 20 -25 HRS. I suggest you buy a stock already equipped . Have a good one
Why don't you drop the scope lower to the barrel? It looks like it's sitting an inch above the action.
I'm guessing the objective bell wont let him get any closer.
Poor guy here. Made my own. Just a wood block with two dowels
I use the hardware from Gary Eliseo (gotxring.com). Takes a bit of work to drill 3 holes in the top of the comb to accept the rods and thread stock plus an oval on the off-side for the thumb wheel but it works very well for not much $$. Very low profile on the comb.
Mike what did you hit Jack with?
243, 80 grain sierra blitz. And that's in a 10 twist, in an 8 it's nuclear. I was hunting coyotes and got bored.
You would have to sand down roll over check piece on right side,Matthews Fabrication sells,adjustable check pieces around $ 50,if you gave them specks on you stock,they could make you one,recommend the 1/8 thick ones
You can buy a piece of Kydex, shape it, form it and install four blind 1/4" bolt studs in the stock for about $25. They work perfect.
It's an easy project...if you have skills
But first lower those rings!
Low as I can go without the obj hitting barrel.
Look up Joe Ducos (aka stockdoc). He is a wizard at installing adjustable cheek pieces on stocks.
I'd buy a new stock that works better for you, or change your shooting style: lighter cheek weld with a more upright head position.
Boyds At One is a good deal.
Cut/sand the cheek pad down and get a plastic taco shell style.
One of the NSSF videos on setting up a scope (by Ryan Cleckner) he shows his super low tech cheek riser, basically just a shaped piece of wood with two nails, drill small holes in the stock then puts a velcro or neoprene cheek pad over it to hold it.
I use a VooDoo tactical strap on cheek riser that allows you to use different amounts of foam for different heights, I did have to modify it for my hunting stock, but that only took 10 minutes with scissors and the sewing machine.
