Will Garand Leather Cheekpiece fir M1A/M14

Topic ask it all, was wanting to buy one of the M1 Garand sniper cheek rests if it will fit M1A/M14.

It will fit but isn't what you need. The cheek rest for the M1 Garand was made to set the cheek more to the left. This helped line the eye up with the offset scope mounted on the Garand.

The M1A mounts over the bore line and your cheek needs to be raised up instead of over. There are numerous manufacturers out there making a similar product to raise the cheek. I think Blackhawk industries makes some and I'm sure others do as well.

strap on cheek rest

my friend has a SA, Inc. mount and uses a 40mm ziess scope, the 946-102-004 works for him just fine. it's the tallest model.

blackhawk also makes one, but it is not rigid like the scope-eze

Rooster33 makes a nice adjustable cheekrest for your M1A stock http://www.whamocamo.bizland.com/rooster33/id8.html He'll be quite happy to ship to the US too I believe he lurks around on this board as well.

Uses 3 Velcro straps to secure. Checkpieces are interchangeable: low, medium, and high.

Comes in black or tan.

I have had one for 6 years, very reliable.

Nope. Tried that, and was dissapointed.

Tried ones from Blackhawk / Eagle as well. Disappointed in them too.

The best, by far, is a rigid adjustable cheek rest. I wasn't the biggest fan of the M3A type at first, but it's grown on me. Except for the rubber mouse pad type neoprene coat. That needs to be redone.

FWIW
