cheek rest? help

So, I got my new rifle and absolutely love it. I only ran into one little problem. When I was doing some prone dry fire practice in the sim-range I made up in my basement (noting fancy, just an itty bitty target on the wall, and my rifle 8 yards away), I realized that In order to see through my scope, I'm pretty much riding my jaw bone on the stock, and not getting a good cheek weld. This was not an unforeseen issue. So now I am looking at getting a cheek rest for the rifle. because of the design of the stock, I'm pretty certain a permanently attached cheek rest is out of the question. I'm looking for suggestions for a good cheek rest that might work with my stock, or alternatively, a way to make a cheek rest for the stock.

Here are a couple pictures of the stock:




Thanks

I ran into the same issue, with 2 of my rifles, my daughter was also complaining about her cheek weld. so I put a slip on knee pad from walmart and one of these on each rifle. MidwayUSA Rifle Cheek Rest Rifle Ammo Carrier 5-Round Fixed Stock

Works good!

I used this same one and added a piece of foam pipe insulation under the cheek area and it worked perfectly.

+1 on the Scope Eze from Brownells. It can be cut and fitted to rollovers,and comes in various heights and slim side designs so it doesn't throw your eye off center. Low cost as well.
