This is not a stupid question.

Setting the correct height of a cheek rest is a trial and error process, since everyone's face is not the same. This is why it's much better to have an adjustable cheek rest that you can fit to your face, rather than trying to fit your face to the cheek rest.

The other advantage to an adjustable cheek rest is that it can be used to help sight alignment with iron sights by lowering to the correct height.

A cheek rest that is correctly designed and manufactured will be very stiff once locked into place and have a very slightly rounded top with a small radius in the transition to the vertical surface. This provides a "shelf" for the cheek bone and lets you index your eye to the same place each time, after the height of the cheek rest is adjusted to your face.

Cheek rests that have a top surface that is rounded like a pipe, with a width that is larger than the stock, will push your eye out of alignment with the scope and make it more difficult to get a good sight picture.

A cheek rest that is soft and pliable makes it impossible to index your face in the same place with each shot.

Thanks from alseides, pgk and JEFFJP_N_JJ

LOL. You don't know Maryland to ask that question. Sorry. No offense intended, but political forces have made a mockery of the Second Amendment in this state.

Mea maxima culpa if this violates the no politics guideline, but I thought I'd answer SAnuke65's question.

After reading this, I ordered mine from cheeknstock. I had a small problem with it and called Virgil on a Friday. He had a new one in my hands the following Monday. That's superior service...

BTW, the piece itself is very nice and works great.

I know we had a back order for approx. 3 weeks, but all our RSP's are back in stock. Thank you for all the orders, and yes the RSP has been out now for over 3 years.

A brief history as folks have been PM'ing and emailing...It was made early on for several Mil squads who started getting issued M14's with scopes and I got tired of the boys using duck tape and pillows to their stocks. Many of the foot soldiers were not getting issued the fancy units with SAGE stocks so the RSP has worked out well for these gents.

Fulton for me (see bottom rifle):



3 Velcro straps with an expanding strap around the buttplate and underneath the folding buttplate. 3 interchangeable cheek pieces to chose from (low, medium, high), no screws, no drilling, just right for M1As and AR15 type rifles. Come in a choice of black or tan/coyote brown. Combat proven in OEF and OIF.

About $40 or so. I have had this one since 1998. No issues. You need it as the Leupold Mark-IV needs the ARMS-22M rings in order for the eye-piece lens scope bell to clear the rear sight.

What height would you recommend for a M1A walnut stock?

Thanks for the reply. I went with the SWFA SS (42mm objective), and low SWFA rings. I emailed CheekNStock and asked for some pictures. I havent heard back yet. I want to see what this set up looks like.
