I use heat to bend a 6"x6" piece of kydex over a pipe. You can velcro or screw it on.

I've seen some guys build some really impressive, yet simple, adjustable risers using kydex. I'm supposed to build one for son's .308, but have yet to get to it.

I made one to see if it helped not too long ago (it did). Used some 1 1/2" diameter cardboard tube I crushed in half, some squishy styrofoam from some package or another and an old tube sock to keep it all together. Worked pretty well except it didn't want to stay in place. I suspect if I threw in a piece of old bicycle inner tube on the bottom it'd keep it still.

Don't give up yet.
Just get some blue masking tape..
Layers it on.. for a base. The masking tape won't hurt your rifles Finnish.
Then some thick gorilla tape. Lay that on.
Build it up till it fits you perfect.
Then a strip or two of masking tape around it.
Then wrap the whole thing with Vet wrap tape.
It'll be ROCK SOLID.
Never move.

Here's a picture that probably does a lot better at explaining how it all goes together (sock pulled back a bit to display the insides)

This was strictly a prototype for me. A good friend of mine does leatherwork and is going to create me a more permanent one that's fitted for the gun. He feels using a strip of suede along the comb plus slotting the leather around the sling swivel will help to avoid slippage.

If you want to drill some holes for an adjustable one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01A4X76IQ...v_ov_lig_dp_it

I put this on my Appleseed rifle (I usually leave the mag pouch off): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005OAAHTA...v_ov_lig_dp_it
