Re: Scope setting to far forward and cheek pad?

Yes I'm up grading my scope. My G7 should be to me the first part of October. It will ride this rifle until probably next fall when it will go to a 30 cal. and I'll put the simmons back on the 25-06 and return it to predator calling duty and use the .30 for the long range stuff. The eye relief on the simmons is to far forward but I believe your right that the picatinny may be the ticket.

Agin, is the Karsten style of cheek piece suitable to be mounted on a wooden stock? Thank's, Brad

Yes that style cheek piece can be mounted on a wood stock. I wouldn't hesitate unless you have a have a fancy or presentation grade stock.

I'm not sure who makes it but if he looks around on the net a bit I've seen at least one that's made in a nice walnut grain faux finish.

Just another thought but if you can't find one of those I would think you can find some wood grain shelf paper that would do the trick just fine on any of the solid color one's if you want something that at least would somewhat match your stock.

No more rise than you need these should fit the bill.

I really like these cheek pads.

Accuriser Cheek Pad

I've used both the strap on and permanent mounted styles and they've worked very well for me.

The Black Hawk is another very good one.
Good call on the accu-riser cheek pads, I just ordered one to try out!

I like mine.

Someone however needs to come up with a self adhering Neoprene pad that has various thicknesses of inserts you can install before attaching.

Put them out in different colors/camo patterns etc.... They'd be a huge seller.
