    Do I really want to drill holes in my beautiful predator stock to mount a cheek rest?

    I don't know, do you?

    If you're asking if there are alternatives, yes there are. But drilling is always an option.

    I got one that fastens around the stock gives me a little ammo holder... I had to mess with the foam in the comb riser to get it where I liked it but it didn't take much. And it was cheap so if I didn't like it no harm no foul. I think it was an Amazon special for like 12 bucks.[​IMG]

    Yup..easy on easy off cheek riser and butt extension.

    Got mine off ebay for cheap. Came with a ammo pouch also. Added some closed cell foam underneath to get it just right.

    An even easier solution is installing a shorter set of scope rings if that gives your scope enough clearance to mount over the barrel.

    Besides, having the scope as close to the bore (as possible provided that you don't have to scrunch up your cheekweld) is ideal and preferred way to mount an optic in the first place.

    Try a strap on cheek rest and if you decide you like it enough then make it more permanent.

    Thanks for the input everyone. I'll have to ponder this for a while. Has anyone had experience with the bolt thru the stock option?

    Not something I would do. Too many other options available than to ruin a stock. Just my humble opinion about it.
