Nope, but I know that Vltor stocks and beards/mustaches don't go together.
Either put a piece of duct tape on the stock where your cheek goes, or trade out the stock for an LMT sopmod.

I have a Vltor, no problem, just put a thin coat of black RTV (Room Temperature Vulcanization, silicone) along the battery tubes that pinch your hair. Wipe of the excess, no problem, hardly notice it.

Mine gets caught between the buffer tube and the stock itself. Lately when I have been at the range I have just been draping a towel over the area.

What would Ignatius Piazza do? Shave?

My guess is he would get an A2 stock.

Can you fill the crack/gap with some black silicone or clear silicone? Or use some 3M blue masking tape. Comes off with no residue so the stock wont be full of tape adhesive

It's funny, but a legit question. If you were embedded overseas and growing out your facial hairs to blend in, you'd probably be familiar with this problem as well.

(I'm not - I mostly keep a tidy face.)

Now how long of facial hair are we talking about here? I have what I like to call "perma-scruff" and have never had this issue.
