wanting a cheek pad to raise sight line.

i don't want one with fifty zippered pockets and 40 shell loops.

leather is nice but not mandatory.

would like one that also attaches to end of stock.

suggestions and advice appreciated. links would also be helpful.

thanks.

I've looked at these two online. But, I haven't personally seen/used one.

Tactical Operations Ammo Cheek Pad Black*::*Long Range Accessories*::*Long Range*::*Tactical Works, Inc.

Shooter's Stock Pack Rifle

I'm keen to see what feedback others may provide.

thanks,

Re: i want a cheek pad....suggestions/advice

Cheers,

I went with a different approach and had a specific reason for doing so.

Comb Raising Kits | Beartooth Products

I need a high cheek weld. I also plan to permanently modify my HS Precision stock at some point by adding material to the comb, blending it in, and repainting the stock. Soooo... I wanted to experiment with different heights. By following the posted link you'll see this system allows you to play a bit.

I've used this kit for about a year and a half and have found it to be durable, adjustable, and cheap; all of which help me to zero in on final modifications to my rifle stock.

Just my 2 cents

Re: i want a cheek pad....suggestions/advice

I use a Blackhawk Tact available at Optics Planet for about $20. It has Velcro straps, and has a good feel to it. You can adjust the dimensions to fit perfectly at the top and sides with the inserts supplied. No extra pockets or loops, and looks good. I like the straps because you are able to get it on and off easily to be able to remove the bolt,and use it on multiple rifles.
