I've been looking and searching for an inexpensive DIY solution to proper cheek weld. Something that looks better than some foam with duct tape wrapped around the stock but offers some comfort and possibly some adjust ability.
I need to add some comb to a few different rifles, listed below
Rem. 700 VTR
10/22 with Tapco stock
Marlin 795

I found and like the Karsten Kydex riser but $60 for piece of plastic is a bit much for someone who's worked as a plastic fabricator.

So I'd like to see what creative solutions CGN members have come up with for this common problem.

Buy some sheets of kydex and make one yourself. should be pretty easy to drape the hot sheet over the stock, then cut it to shape and bolt it on.

Have you tried lower scope rings first? I can't imagine all those stocks being too low.

Sometimes people with glasses can't use the "turkey neck" style of shooting so they need to do weird things to get a cheek weld, since they don't want to look over the top of their frames. The guy I go shooting with most often wears them and always complains about how my rifles are set up, they're just unusable for him.

My daughter has this on her .22WM:

Ya I bought a low set of rings and it helped but can't get it any lower. The Objective lens is about 1/4" lower but I'm using the lowest rings I could find that I could afford.

I'm not sure but maybe I have a high cheek bone or something. I think I'll try to make my own and test it on my 795 to see how well it works then worry about my 700. Anyone have a line on some foam material like wetsuit material? maybe 1/4" thickness.

I put that one of those in black on my 10/22, works great.

On wood stocks I tend to use an Enfield Sniper repro cheekpiece. It's wood, it bolts on and won't move a bit. Very nicely finished too, from Numrich Arms.

The Blackhawk at Midway mentioned by bahi777 works for me on my H&R.
