It was about 2 years ago when I first tried one at first I hated it but after I got used to it now I love it and wouldn't ever want to have a stock without it.

I just added a Karsten adjustable cheek piece to my rifle and love it. It is so nice to rest your cheek and be looking perfectly through the scope every time. I also think it helped me to shoot my tightest groups yet at the range today.

If one made from a brake pedal pad and duct tape counts as adjustable(I did adjust it when I made it) then yes I do. May look like Frankenrifle but it works.

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

I have 3 rifles with which I do my hunting depending where I am and the terrain.2 have classic stocks with cheekpiece's and 1 has a slight rollover. I bought the rollover as a try it out type thing,it seems ok. In montana most of my shots have been from sitting with a rest. in N.Y. off hand, I have been hunting about 35 years and am satisfied with my standard walnut stocks.

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

I just put on an Eagle stock pack. To bring the pack up for my cheek weld, I attached velcro strips to the velcro already inside the Eagle. I cut 1" x 4" strips and used the adhesive backing to attach male and a female strips back to back. I added 4 of these combos inside the front of the stock pack and 3 to the inside back of the pack. My cheek weld is now working and the velcro is rock solid for my cheek bone.

I really thought about getting a Karsten or Defensive edge, but I really like the fact that I can store an extra clip, range card and earplugs etc. in the pouch on the stock.

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

Most stocks are still built for factory rifles with the idea that sighting will be done along iron sights and yet 90 percent are mounted with scopes that sit much higher. For quick mounting and accuracy three points of contact are best: under cheek bone, pistol grip and forehand. Without these accuracy and speed suffers even prone. Does not apply as much for BR.
