Thumbs up New Cheek Rest for M14 / M1A (Riser Stock Pouch - RSP) by TNVC

Gentlemen,

I wanted to give you guys a preview of this new M14 / M1A Cheek Rest or "Riser Stock Pouch" (RSP) as they call it, by TNVC.

My business partner Roger sent me these pictures last night and the press release from TNVC. It looks like they are dabbling in M14 / M1A accessories now.





Full Disclosure
- TNVC is a dealer for Battle Arms Development, Inc. for the BAD-T1 Multi-Tool & Gauge. I have not yet seen this product in person so I can't give you first hand experience.

From the photos only, it looks like one of the best M14/M1A Cheek Rest I've seen so far. Very nicely done! I should be receiving a sample to play with soon and I will get back to you all with my review.

Thank you.

George

========================================
For Immediate Release

Loma Linda, California, Scottsdale, Arizona, 21 May 2010 – Tactical Night Vision Company, Inc. (TNVC) and U.S. PALM are proud to announce the new RSP© line of stock enhancements. The first model to be released is the RSP© Mod.0 – Riser Stock Pouch, Model 0.


TNVC and U.S. PALM, in a collaborative design effort, have developed a solution to a problem plaguing U.S. Warfighters, Law Enforcement Professionals, Civilian Hunters, and Target Shooters: How to achieve a proper cheek weld on a scoped M14/M1A Rifle? For decades, individuals have implemented improvised methods in the form of foam pillows and 100mph tape attached to butt stocks. These stopgap solutions do not last long under field conditions. Other attempts to provide after-market risers have proven to be unreliable under battlefield conditions. Other manufactured add-on full stock assemblies while novel in approach, add severe weight and costs penalties. All this changes with the introduction of the new RSP© line. The RSP© Mod.0 is the first of several new Stock enhancements to be released and is designed for the M14/M1A rifle. Because of the long-range engagements on current and specific battlefield locales and the need for heavy-hitting rounds, the M14/M1A is seeing resurgence in the hands of U.S. Warfighters. The majority of these scoped DMR’s are issued with a standard stock. The new RSP© Mod.0 easily attaches to these stocks and provides the shooter with a stable, optimum comb height. “We were fed up with seeing our Warfighters resorting to pillows and tape to get a good cheek weld on their M14’s. There had to be a better way,” said TNVC’s President, Victor Di Cosola. The RSP© Mod.0 also includes a built-in horizontal magazine pouch that can hold a single extra USGI 20rd M14 magazine and a fast-access clear sleeve pocket for DOPE/Range cards and/or target photos. The RSP© is made in the U.S. from 500d Cordura© Nylon.

The TNVC initial idea for the RSP© originated with the need for a functional stock riser for use on a standardized Remington 700 with a Remington Military MARS Rail setup. The MARS adds 20MOA to the scope height and is used for mounting clip-on night sights in front of day scopes. US PALM, with their tactical nylon expertise was approached and the project was kicked into high gear. It was decided to focus the first model on the M14/M1A platform because of immediate need by U.S. Warfighters. The RSP© Mod.0 is the first in a series of Riser Stock Pouches. Future releases are in the works for other weapon platforms.

Thanks from Smokincharlie

Extras

You know........At first, I thought....Just what I need, some more weight added to my rifle, then I said... Naw. Then I went to move on to the next thing on the forum, and I scrolled backup, then down, then up, then.....well, you get the idea, I could not quit looking at it. I got to thinking, what an excellent idea for patrol rifle gear and an officer that definately doesn't need anymore weight on his belt like a 20 round M14 mag. Rarely would he need his rifle...hopefully...but if he did, it is GTG. I can't think of a single situation in the civilian world that 40 rds. of 7.62 could not solve.

In combat it could prove very useful for a sniper that must lay motionless for hours and he needs move his body very little to retrieve the extra mag and insert in the rifle, if on his belt, he would have to move arms and hands to get it, they arms are already bent and his hands are already there.Yep, I like it. Now, tell him that if he wants the rest of the money I have left, to produce it in nut brown to match my walnut stock, olive drab to match my camo stocks, and black.

Very nice design, and would be a great addition for a scoped M14 Walter Mitty rifle, but.......

$89.00 dollars!

I'm sure it is a quality piece of kit, but that is pretty expensive for a cheek rest with a ammo pouch sewed to it. I hope more companies follow suit so this current monopoly on M14 cheek riser (pouches) gets cut in price.

I wanted to say thank you for the comments thus far and happy one commented on the magazine placement...Indeed, I personally saw this need with folks going prone for extended periods.

As for price, we feel not just a mag pouch sewn to a piece of material as we also had custom foam fit machining for each pouch as well. We feel it's a very fair market value for what the RSP offers. Price is always a difficult aspect with any piece of qaulity kit and with what the RSP offers and also Made in the USA (EVERY) piece of it, I hope it may serve well. Thank you again for the comments.

Vic Di Cosola

Edited: We will be offering other colors (no time frame just yet) in black, multicam, and coyote. Tan was asked for initially by a few certain folk.

Edited: We listened.... We are now offering the RSP to Firing Line folks at the price of $79.00. Please call in your order and tell us your screen name for the special price!

Thanks guys and we hope this new price may assist some of you who were on the fence.

Vic

I meant no disrespect from it, and am happy to see progression for the beloved M14 platform.

Is the cheek riser removeable?

I would LOVE to see a version without the cheek riser but still the ammo pouch and dope card slot. For those of us with McMillian or JAE stocks (with cheek risers) your product would not be a viable option.... but as stated before, this would make an excellent addition to any "Wlater Mitty" rifle in a USGI wood or fiberglass stock.

No disrespect noted at all, we know price is always a tough aspect.

Indeed the custom foam piece is removable and the RSP can be used without it. We also plan to have other fixed foam heights available, or folks who are good with a sharp knife may also alter the height if they see a need. Thank you,

Vic

I'm in! I figure if a trigger group can go for over $225 a nicely made cheek rest for $89 isn't all that bad. I especially like the document pouch for writing down range settings etc. To me the mag pouch is a novel idea and will come in handy for our boys in harms way. Also I bet they eventually come out with one for a lefty.

I wonder the possibility of a group buy?????


Hawk????? hint

Perhaps my experience is unique, but anything (mag pouch) that interferes with the left hand cheek weld/sight picture is a no go...

I may be right handed, but I used a left hand hold at least 30% of the time...especially in urban, obstacled areas.

For a static position, looks fine. Never had that luxury.

I'd buy one in a heart beat if I still had a USGI stocked M1A.

Is there a strap on cheek rest out there that offers the height this unit does? When I was looking, I disliked what I found, eventually I went with a cheek rest that required me to drill holes in my stock (I'm a terrible carpenter, I drilled 4 holes, the first two were messed up lol)

Vic is an outstanding guy that stands behind his products. I know a little something about development and manufacturing, I don't think the asking price is out of line, considering the quality and features.
