Re: Stock upgrade question

You can get a great one from defensive edge, or if you are handy, you can do what I did. I bought a small remnant sheet of kydex plastic online, cut it to shape, boiled it to make it soft and draped it over my sendero applying pressure until it hardened again. Then I slotted it, drilled the stock and using stainless carriage bolts and thumb nuts "voila". Adjustable cheek rest shaped and fitted to my taste.

I have made this poor mans cheek rest. Take one of those elastic ammo holders that fits around the butt of the rifle. I took some pieces of closed cell foam sleeping mat that you can get at Wal-mart, the blue ones, and slipped them under the elastic to build up the comb of the stock till it fit me. Cheep and easy.

Yea I already have one rifle Ive done like that...Thought about doing it to the sendero but I would like something with more adjustabilty and rigidness to it...I believe when I get the rifle in I will ship the stock to dfensive edge and let them install one.

Found an adjustable cheek piece. It's Gunbroker Auction # 138600005 .
They're asking $56.00 for it. You can get it with knobs or allen screws.
Looks pretty good to me.
