cheek pieces

I have a HS Precision sporter stock and I was wondering about if I can put an adjustable cheek piece on it. I put my first 50mm objective scope on a gun and I DONT THINK I WOULD DO IT AGAIN. It does not feel comfortable to raise my head to see through it. I havent used a adjustable cheek piece either. But it seems like a good idea. Does anyone have similar problems?

    I'm bettin' that you will change your mind a) when you get that cheek piece and get it adjusted for you and b)when you get in a poor light situation. The 50mm will out do the 40s. It's a little be iffy if a 50mm is "that" much better than a 44mm though.

    I'm having a build with a 56mm objective scope without an adjustable cheek piece, to save weight. I'll be ordering one of the DE adjustable cheek pieces when the time comes.

    Good luck and good shootin'

    X2 on the Defensive Edge cheek piece. I have it on one of my rifles that has a HS Prec. stock and I couldn't ask for it to be any better.

    How many dead animals would you like to see that have been killed with DE cheekpieces and 56mm scopes?

    Thanks for the replies. Is it a do it yourselfer to put the cheekpiece on or do I need a smith to do it. Any thing I need to watch for if I do it myself.
