I put one on my FCP-K and dropped group size by 1/4 MOA. Great product and great company support.
You get the company support before your item even arrives. The install video link was sent two days before the cheekpiece arrived. That made it a 15 minute install. Good stuff.

Five shot groups less than .5 MOA are now substandard.

Keep your "Accustock", add one of these and you will be happy. I am.

Hope this helps.

Well i recieved my karstens cheek rest today, three days after ordering. This is the second product i have ordered and shipping is quick. The instalation is pretty straight forward and not to hard if you have the proper tool. I did have to shorten the mounting screws by about 1/4 in beings they bottom out before the rest is tight to the stock. All in all im verry pleased and i look forward to doing more business with TW.. I just wish they had a larger selection for us bolt gunners.. Thanks

I have one on my .338 RUM and just installed one on my .458 SOCOM with an A2 buttstock. Measuring is important, obviously, since you need to ensure you drill into the stock BELOW the buffer tube. Everything came out perfectly and now I have a perfect cheekweld for the optics on my rifle. This is a great product and I'm always recommending it to everyone who is serious about their marksmanship.

Installed on Rem 700 P. Very simple install. Instrutions on this site are superb. Very easy to follow. This was the first item I have ordered from Tactical Works. I am VERY pleased with speed of order filling and delivery. Their web site is easy to navigate. I will be purchasing more items from them in the future.
Thanks Tactical Works.

Tactical Works is one of the best companys I have dealt with on the web. I ordered a Karsten Cheek Rest and a tac bolt handle. Great products and the fastest shipping I have ever seen. It was my pleasure to do business here. I will be using Tactical Works again.
Keep up the good work.

I ordered both a cheek rest and Tactical bolt. I had a follow up question on the bolt installation, which was answered in record time and resolved the minor problem.

Its a good experience to deal with a company like this, will be back for additional items in the future.

Just installed this product on a Bell & Carlson Medalist stock, Savage 10FCP in .308, this is great. Not that I couldn't have made it myself, but by the time you buy the sheet of kydex....it's cheaper this way, pretty much. Also some extremely fast shipping - one of the fastest places I've seen. Beats Amazon, and that's pretty impressive. I'll give the product, and the sales service, an A+. Good job folks, satisfied customer here.

I needed an adjustable cheek rest for my Mossberg 500 with which I swap out three different barrels, each one requiring a different rest height. One is a field barrel with bead sights, the second is a rifled barrel with iron sights, and the third is a rifled barrel with a red dot sight on a cantilevered mount. The Karsten Model B turned out to be the perfect solution.

Advantages: light, easy install, simple

Disadvantages: have to drill holes in rifle stock

Great product and fast shipping.

Advantages: A cheek rest makes the world of difference when you have a 50mm scope. Perfect eye alignment every time now.

Disadvantages: None

Product is everything it was said to be. It was shipped promptly. The molded rest is stout, well constructed and finished. Follow the simple directions and you will have no problem. I mounted the rubber padding using contact glue and after it was firmly mounted, trimmed it with scissors and a razor blade. Model B hardware fit the Model 12 Savage stock without any need for trimming the bolt length.

Advantages: Easy to install and provides a good firm cheek rest.

Disadvantages: Disrupts the ability to run the cleaning rod so the rest has to be loosened and lowered to provide the needed space. No big deal but with the model B you need to carry the hex wrench.

I mounted the B-model cheek rest on a Ruger 10/22 which I had a c-more optic on. The cheek rest now gives me a better sight picture since I'm now able to check weld the gun instead of chinning it. The small lag bolts that comes with the rest for mounting has a tendency to turn within the slot allocated for the bolt side. Because of this I would say the rest is a little overpriced for the quality of the product. Oh, and use a drill press for drilling...a hand drill will drift a little causing mis-alignment of the left and right holes.

Advantages: Fairly easy to mount.

Disadvantages: Cost vs quality.

I have put this on numerous rifle stocks, that have large lens, with 300mm tubes and they work great. I have 1 A-Model and I prefer the B, because when you move it, it comes back to the same setting.

Advantages: When you have to move the cheek rest, like when you clean the barrel from the rear, just going to the same hole buts it back in the same place.

Bought this for my Ruger 308 Predator with Redfield 3-9x40 Tac-Moa Scope mounted on a EGW 20 degree rail.
I choose the B model and could not be more happy. With Check rest installed no problems. Rifle and scope are now a scope fit perfect fit. Highly recommended and will order another one for a 223 GSR

The cheek rest b-model works very well and is easy to install. The video and instructions were very helpful.

Advantages: Very solid, feels like it is a part of the stock and not just and add on.

Disadvantages: Does not have a hex tool for adjustment. I believe this should be included in the kit.

Fit & Finish of the product was great. Installation was easy and straight forward. Works exactly as designed. Only reason for 4 stars is I thought the price was a little high for what it was.
