My new .308 Crusader build came in from GA Precision, with 1.125 Badger 34mm rings and I installed a NightForce ATACR. After breaking it in and feeling the rifle, it seems that the scope height is a bit high that my cheek does not seat on the stock firmly and comfortably. Is there an slip on cheekpad or an aftermarket pad that can raise my eye level to the scope by about half an inch? I don't want to drill my stock for now, hopefully there is something out there that will accommodate me.

Hard to beat a Karsten for the price and easy install

I did some research on stock pad slip ons. There are a few out there that is nice from Triad, Tac Ops, etc, but the straps that loops under the stock may interfere with the rabbit ear bullbag,,,still looking. I don't want to drill any holes in the stock for those sliding sleeves. Thanks for the advice.

Then look at a Bradley cheek rest.

Really your only three options are
1) drill holes for the Karsten
2) cut stock and drill holes for a Loggerhead system
3) deal with straps from the Bradley or stock packs

There is a 4th, but it's pricey and that is buy a new stock that's adjustable

Stan, have you tried stuffing a half can of Copenhagen in your right cheek to get a better cheek weld?

How much height do you need. Look at the weibad, they have a pad that goes on. Not sure if it will work with your stock though.

Get ahold of Jason on the hide, he's the "stockdoc" and does lots of retrofits with your own stock pieces. I think his handle is jducos
