TacPro Cheek Riser Installed

I know I am not the first or only one to installed a cheek riser but I finally got my TacPro and installed. Dang Canada Post strike! A couple things, once measured 1 3/4" from the butt, a mark was made with Sharpie and I then used masking tape taped along the mark and square. I found this easier to see when placing the riser on the stock to clamp it in position.

I was going to drill a pilot hole first then go 1/4 bit but stopped, gave it some thought and that would probably place the holes too high and the riser bumps would sit off the stock so..rebit with 1/4 bit.

I got lucky, I drilled one rear hole first, flipped the SOCOM around and drilled the other side and hit dead center, no need to ream the hole, bolt when all the way through with ease. I the bolted on the riser using the rear hole as I drilled the front, still used a clamp though. Got luck again!

Placed the riser about center of the slots, shouldered the SOCOM and was dead center POA through my EoTech, the red circle ret is no longer sitting at the bottom of the glass, I can see the whole circle now. Absolutely happy.





I still have to run a stock pack so placed my Triad Tactical over the riser, a few adjustments with the velcro and now I snap up to my shoulder, red ret is dead center in the glass, happy I am.


Much happier than this!


This is the 10 round mag inside the stock pack, still loads of room, a 20 round will fit also but that is about it plus foam plugs and chapstick is about all.


Thanks for looking, hope this helps someone, if not, thanks anyway.

I'm liking that setup. If you were to fill that Triad pouch with 10rd'rs how many would it fit? 3? Also I like the advice I've seen elsewhere that the holes in the stock are drilled out a little larger and brass or SS tubes are epoxied in to add support to the hollow stock.

This is unnecessary Bubba engineering and will prevent the storage space from holding the combo tool or cleaning kit.

If you install the TAC PRO cheek rest according to the included instructions, the bolts go through solid wood or plastic. The compression load is further spread by the plastic of the cheek rest.

If metal tubes were required to support the stock they would be included in the installation kit.

First good day of training at the range with it on, I removed the stock pack as it just added too much width and did not allow a snap up sight alignment. The reason I like and went with the TacPro is the ergonomics, not sure how to explain it but its not a rounded top but has a flat area for the cheek...seen in pix #2 above.

While I have limited time on either, I find the plastic a little thinner than the Karsten. The cheek weld on the flat area of the TacPro allows better sight alignment. Bare skin of the cheek on bare plastic of the riser and the TacPro has more friction / less slick than the Karsten.

Plus it was cheaper even with shipping from Canuckia it was total cheaper price.

Three would fit but would be very tight...two long ways with the third on top / outside side.

I was sold until I went to the TacPro website & found my only payment option was I had to use Paypal, which includes giving Paypal my phone number.


Big negative for me seeing that Paypal is anti-gun & has cost my wife huge losses on Ebay.

I really like my TAC Pro riser on my Scout had no issues at all installing, as long as you follow the simple directions you will not have any problems.
