Roger that.

Final fitting - even though I have another coat or two of TruOil to do. I'm pleased with the way it came out and the stock now fits me. Rest my head, open my eye and there's a beautiful and full site picture

The Scotch/3M outdoor (15# rated) double sided tape is super strong so I used just two 1" square pads to attache the riser to the stock. This will allow me to slowly peal it off if the need arises. The leather as been Mink oiled and the rifle is now ready to be sighted in.

Here's what it looks like from the masive thumbhole inlet side of the stock. I'm not to keen on the look of the Cherry color. I may change it later if it bugs me enough.

I will have a little more work to do on my stock if I make my own riser. The factory stock has a grove for the bolt all the way down the stock.

I have pretty much the same stock on a Savage mdl 16 in 260 Remington and made a cheek riser out of kydex. I'll try to get some photos.

It's nothing fancy, it's light and works for me.

That looks really slick and with some adjustability too. I've never worked with Kydex, but I image it is pretty simple to work with once you have a feel for the amount of heat to use.

Yes it works pretty easy, but if you get it to hot the edges will turn up. Another bonus is itís cheap.
