There's all kinds of benefits of living in a western town.

I visit the local saddle shop where they have boxes of scraps. They sell the stuff by the pound. I scrounge around for what I think I will need for a project.

Chap leather is good. Latigo is stiffer.

I use Gorilla glue to stick the leather to the Velcro.

The sticky back on the Velcro is sufficient for the stock. Thus no modifications to the stock are necessary.

The spacer can be any available material that is easy to form. Wood, leather, plastic etc. Simply shape it to fit the top of the stock.

I learned quickly that the only reason cheek risers are round on top is probably because it naturally bends that way. I found that a little more flat on top with rounded edges fit better under the cheek bone.

The fellow that was shooting the one with the hair on it was able to spot the bullet from shot to impact for every shot he took. The cheek piece was part of that. Wish I had eyes like that

Re: Add on cheek riser?

Would you be willing to take a pic with your rifle strapped up so we can see how the slings work?

Its part of the carry system. Pretty much self designed. Notice the sling stud on the bipod. There is one on both sides. The bipod is constantly attached and the sling is out of the way for a rushed prone shot if necessary.

These heavy rigs are way more than a single shoulder can stand for very long. Thus this innovation.

I carry across my shoulder with the gun in front. Quite nice I'd say...

Kind of Hollywoody but functional.
