I'd say it's your stock; do what you like with it. I might gag a little bit while saying it, though.

When you decide to take it off you can use some of that stuff to removed the sticky tape residue

goo gone

de-solve-it

citrus grease remover,

etc.

Won't hurt the stock (dry it out some but some linseed oil will fix it right up again.)

Rather than goo up a Boyd's stock send it to me. I'll send you a nice, used Chicom stock that you won't mind messing up!

Don't use electrical tape. Use duct tape instead. It's thicker and leaves more residue...if you're lucky it might take off some wood laminate splinters too.

LOL.

Yeah I was being a little tongue-in-cheek about the electrical tape guys.

But I am wondering how the GIs make theirs. Thanks.

Field expedience is a wonderful thing to witness

Personally I would opt for a section of old inner-tube and bean bags

Is that rifle missing a sling?...

I guess he doesn't carry it for long periods

While in the US Army (many years ago) no one mentioned or taught the use of the sling for shooting.

Over the last year I've learned the value of the sling for increasing the support the rifle gets while shooting and would no longer shoot without one. I find the hasty sling quick to get into/out of and I've proven to myself it improves my shooting.

+100 on field expedience. I have seen more than a few M40A1 sniper rifles with similar cheek rests. I have also seen scope covers made from a GI sock.

I suggest a roll of duct-tape, and half a carton of Marlboros, box.

Here's an assortment of duct tape for 'ya!



If you prefer something real, then try these folks. They will make a custom cheekrest for 'ya. I bought a lefty model from 'em. See my pic floating around in here somewhere.
