Re: cheek rest? help

From the looks of it on your other post, you should get a lower set of rings. That will help a lot, and keep your cheekpiece lower. Get the scope almost on the barrel. I would try to try some layers of something and see what it takes to get comfortable.

    lower rings will be coming. I am changing scopes so when I get the new scope, new rings will be a must (going from a 1" to a 30mm main tube), just need to fgure out bare minumum height I can get away with before getting rings. Part of it of course, is also the 20MOA base, raises the back end up pretty good.

    Hi, A friend and I use the Tourbon cheek pad and cartridge holder. Purchased from Amazon for around $33.00. It comes with 3 rubber risers so you can match to the height of your rings.

    This is a very good cheek pad from Triad tactical. I have them installed on on two of my rifles, including my Cooper which has a roll over comb similar to yours.

    For a really cheap option, get a neoprene knee or elbow pad (whichever fits around your stock) and buy a few beer coozies...you know, the ones at walmart or your local tourist trap that are made of closed cell foam and cost like a $1 each. Cut the coozies into strips that fit the top of your stock and use the knee or elbow pad to hold them in place.
