Karsten Kydex Adjustable cheek rest

Out of stock


The Karsten adjustable cheekpiece is designed to be attached to an existing stock. The model B version has a flush fitting allen head instead of the hand tightened knurled knob on the model A. It does require an allen wrench to tighten (Allen wrench not provided). It can be used by both left and right hand shooters and it has fixed notches to lock the cheekpiece at a certain height. These cheekpieces are manufactured here in the USA with high quality Kydex thermal plastic. They are durable and quite functional.

    I really feel like this is an excellent product, definitely superior to anything else in a bolt-on application. The quality of the kydex is top notch.

    I did find the hardware to be lacking in 2 areas, however.

    My suggestion is to drill both sides of the stock at 3/8″ and install a bronze shop machine bushing in the hole on the side opposite of the female nuts provided with the kit. Lowes SKU# 215870 1/4 × 3/8 × 15/32 × 1/2 $2.92 each.

    Even after forming the kydex to my stock (Savage FCP-SR w/ accustock) there was still a gap between the stock and the back of the kydex. The provided carriage bolts will deform the slot well before you get are able to sufficiently tighten the provided hardware.

    With this bushing installed, the extra space is eliminated, there are no threads digging into your stock, and the rest feels rock solid. You will need to be extra precise when aligning your holes, and may need to slightly ream the inside of the bushing, but its well worth the extra time. I did not have to trim the provided bolts at all with these bushings installed. YMMV.

    I also purchased 1/4-20 × 2 elevator bolts which have a wider head, and are totally flat instead of the carriage bolts with domed head provided. Lowes SKU# 137978 $1.04 each. I installed the rest with these bolts, but ultimately decided I liked the look of the provided matte carriage bolts better.

    All in all, incredibly pleased with this product. I would highly recommed this to anyone looking to install an adjustable cheek riser.

    Happy shooting!
