Thanks.

edge, Most stocks for rifles made here (US), are set for 1" scopes, if you go to a 30mm tube scope, the stocks' cheekpiece will be too low for it, so you'll have to slide your face up a little to see centered through the scope. Since your cheek is therefore not "welded" in the same spot every time, your accuracy suffers because your line of sight will be a little different each time. Also your head/body position is a little different with each other so the cheekpiece needs to change a little for your position i.e. standing. sitting, prone, etc.
If you get a 20 MOA scope base or shim your rear base for long range shooting, this situation is magnified.

    Thanks, I just figured with a scope that those differences would not matter since the scope itself does not move.

    I've got a couple stocks "on order" with adjustable cheek pieces.

    Here's one I really like, for a woods gun. It was open sights before, and fine. Now its got a scope so the comb was way too low. Now, when you shoulder the rifle, the scope is right there.

    Its got some cushion too, which helps. Anything helps when you're a skinny guy shooting an 18" 444 marlin!! Long live the THUNDER GUN!!
