Cheek Pad, Cheek Riser, Comb raiser, what ever you call it , this rugged injected molded ABS plasic construction makes this Tactical Cheek Pad the most durable one made for the M-4 stock . Two piece base assembles around stock and is held together with top pad that slides onto rail, locking the two sides together. No tools necessary to mount or remove this cheek pad. A 1 1/4" pad is included for most optic sights and mounting on the carry handle top m-15. The pad base is designed to fit original Colt style M-4 tactical stocks and may need to be altered to fit after market and some later manufacturers stocks with different outside dimentions and bottom lug. Easily done with a dremel tool with a grinding bit.

I'm using this with the original, 2-position, telescoping stock for the Colt M16-A2 Commando. The fit is snug, precise, and perfect. This is an incredibly "solid" cheek rest / riser accessory - perhaps the best, most solid available for the A2 telescoping stock.
The kit comes with two heights of cheek piece that can be replaced by depressing a spring-loaded push-button and sliding the cheek piece on / off a rail on the base.
I find that the lower of the two heights on the cheek pieces is the most useful with my optics, but it is nice to have the two height options which swap in and out in seconds. The rail that they slide on and attach to is pretty cool -- looks like a single-slot Picatinny rail.
The base is a clamshell that clamps around the buttstock. Sliding on the cheek piece cinches the halves together so securely that the additional bolt (included in the kit with nut) can be omitted with no wobble or shifting of the base. Again, the additional bolt and nut for fastening the halves together is nice to have, so I went ahead and installed it for the most finished look.
The material of the cheek pieces and base are ABS plastic, which is hard and durable. The surface texture of the base and cheek pieces are the same: smooth with a very fine "sand" texture. The contours are excellent: snag free and comfortable against the cheek.
This kit is worth the price (which is very affordable by the way) just to witness the ingenuous modularity of the design. This design, with slight mods, could be applied to other tactical firearms that sorely need a cheek piece riser solution. One example would be the telescoping stock on the Benelli M4 / U.S. M1014 shotgun. If The Leatherman can do a version with a short base that affixes via the 3 screws on top of the Benelli M4 / U.S. M1014 telescoping stock and with the rail that allows different cheek pieces to slide on / off -- I and many others will buy it! Contact me if you need specifics on the M4 / M1014 dimensions and configuration. :)

I purchased with for my M4 style Colt LE6940. I had to partially Dremel grind down both sides of the curves on the 2 piece base to fit the stock.
Not a problem. However, if I do not fully extend the collapsible stock (4 stops on the stock), the charging handle will hit the CR-M4 and not fully extend!Ie:...the design of this item needs to be changed to be like the CCA Cheek rest.

I bought this first for an AK style rifle (with collapsible stock, of course). I was so satisfied and impressed with this product that I bought a second one for an AR style rifle. The two different sized cheek pads really help the user to secure a good cheek-to-rifle contact point no matter how high the optics are mounted. Your shooting stance even improves since you don't have to unnaturally bend your neck to achieve a good cheek-to-rifle contact point. Highly recommended!
