Do you use an adjustable cheekpiece on your rifle?

I just started using one and feel I should have done so long ago. It doesn't matter so much at the bench, but in field conditions (prone, seated) it really feels more solid in achieving a good consistent, cheek weld. So lightweight, it only weighs a few ounces. This picture doesn't show the new anodized black fasteners that Shawn has on their way to me to replace the aluminum ones now shown.

This is my coyote gun. I will be adding one to my antelope/deer gun also.

I like it so much I just became a dealer!

re: Do you use an adjustable cheekpiece on your rifle?

I do on one of my rifles and should on another. A couple are perfect without one.

I wish I didn't need one, as it would lighten the rifle a bit and also would have been cheaper to build.

Put a karsten cheek piece on my Savage F/TR 308, and just ordered two more for my other rifles.

Re: Do you use an adjustable cheekpiece on your rifle?

You can get the same results from a Cheek-Eez type stick on comb of proper thickness with a lot less fuss (if you're not allergic to rubber). They stay put, are fairly easy to remove, and the adhesive doesn't harm the stock finish.

Yes, I know the Carlock/Karsten type combs are much more rugged and fashionable; and, of course, they are adjustable...to tell the truth, I'd opt for this type if I wasn't so lazy.

I need to on every rifle, except one that has a custom made stock with custom monte carlo stock, in order to get a goot cheekweld.

Re: Do you use an adjustable cheekpiece on your rifle?

I use a Karsten which I took a Dremel to and cut a little slot for removing the bolt. This rifle has a Nightforce and a McMillan HTG style stock. The stocks that Darrell Holland has made by McMillan have a Monte Carlo style and have excellent cheek weld ( at least with a 42mm size objective lens.) I really do like the adjustable cheek pieces but I am becoming more and more convinced that once I obtain that proven and repeatable cheek weld I shouldn't mess with it by raising and lowering to remove the bolt...this has been a flaw of mine in the past. I just bought one from DE and will be putting that on an HS Precision stock that I have...should work out well.
