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

I've been making my own since 1964. Learned to apply layers of hard rubber padding with duct tape in the Marine Corps. I've refined it over the years.

I like Shawn Carlocks design.

I sling my rifle over my off shoulder and the sling lays over my backpacker shoulder strap. I'm comfortable with the set up.

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.
Where did you get your Eagle stock pack?

I want to put a Eagle stock pack (black, right hand) on my new Remington 700 LSS 257 Weatherby and I've not been able to find one anywhere.

TIA

I have an adj comb on a Surgeon with a McMillan A5 and I like it. Enough so that I had another rifle fitted with another A5 w/adj comb.

i use them on some of my rifles and even a ruger p9 9mm carbine.

why? i don't know, but it took me quite a while to figure out the "Eye to sight" alignment that is crucial in getting optimum accuracy from ANY sighting system.

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!

Len....

I do exactly the same thing in my business, I do a first article test on a product (in other words I use one myself in a real life situation, under less than optimum conditions) and if it meets my expectations, I become a dealer for that product as well.

First hand experience always outweighs conjecture....

Besides, if you believe in a product you offer, it's so much easier to sell because it usually sells itself.

Yes, I use my Karsten Cheek in the field for shooting. Keeps my cheek firmly in place and allows me to control the eye relief on my scope much better shooting offhand. It gets removed for the bench. Just gets in the way.

I have mine marked with a paint marker at the respective settings (cheek piece height and cant) for myself and my son. That way, it's readily settable for either of us.

That can't be true...
