I have almost the same exact setup. Airborne sadlak mount badger rings and a SS 10x40. I use the us Palm cheek riser and it works perfect for me. It's a bit expensive but it's an option

Or you can try one of these. But you'll have to drill into your stock.

karsten

i have one on an M1A scout (smith mount changing to sadlak soon, low rings, leupold). it's great. the drilling required is trivial; just avoid the storage tubes in the buttstock and you're golden. $60, not $50, but worth it.

I had the Sadlak and found it sits too high, so I went with the ARMS 18. It sits lower, but every once in a while "catches" brass between OpRod and ring screw .....

I don't like the leather or nylon tie down cheekpieces and use an Enfield Sniper (repro) cheekpiece from Numrich. I use brass screws to attach. Maybe not the approach for everyone because it does require two holes in the stock, and the underside of the cheekpiece needs to be fitted a bit, but it won't budge and gives a great cheekweld.

The TNVC rest is nice, Smith Enterprise offers one that is similar.

I got a blackhawk cheek pad off ebay. For 20$ it works just fine.

Take a grinder and cut a slot out in the middle of your ARMS mount. Google for split rail arms mount some of them came that way. You won't have any more ejection issues.

I've read folks correct an issue that way, seems to work. My issue is a bit different in that the case gets caught between the side of the scope ring and the Oprod, not the base per se. I've got to move the scope ring, get it so it doesn't sit right next to the Oprod when it's in its forward position.
