Accu-Riser Cheek Pad

Ever mounted a scope or red-dot sight on a shotgun or rifle wearing a stock designed for iron sights? I’ve had that experience a couple times, and the results were never pleasant. Shooting a hard-kicking firearm with your head raised high above the buttstock is a sure road to punishment. Being kicked in the chops is painful. Once this happens a time or two, accuracy is guaranteed to suffer.

If you need a higher comb, there’s a cheaper, quicker answer than buying a new stock. Leatherman offers two different versions of its new Accu-Riser molded cheek pad. The Model CR4000S attaches securely to the buttstock with the help of VELCRO straps. The cheek pad won’t harm the stock and can be easily removed.

The Model CR4000P mounts permanently to the stock with a pair of screws. This requires drilling two holes in the top of the stock. Screws are included, along with rubber plugs to fill the holes if the Accu-Riser cheek pad is later removed.

Accu-Riser cheek pads are molded of a rubber compound that flexes to fit most rifles and shotguns with straight-comb buttstocks that lack a cheekpiece. If the cheek pad is too high, you can use a belt or disk sander to reduce it to the correct height.

Unlike leather or nylon cheek pads, the Accu-Riser is waterproof and won’t slide around on the stock. These are important pluses.

Benefits include greater shooting comfort, particularly with a gun that recoils sharply. The cheek pad also helps you hold the gun steadier, which improves accuracy.

The Accu-Riser cheek pad can be purchased directly from the manufacturer by sending a check or money order ($20 plus $6 for shipping and handling) to: The Leatherman, Dept. R, 2216 Ritner Hwy., Carlisle PA 17013; or order online at:
