Thread: Cheek Pieces

  1. #1

    Cheek Pieces

    Question:

    Does the Sako Finlight or Sauer Outback have a cheek piece or is it straight stocked??

    I am left handed and shoot right handed so need a straight stock.

    cheers

    I was out with a stalker at the hinds earlier this year and his estate rifle was a Finlight. I am sure he told me that the cheek piece could be removed and turned around left or right handed.
    "Imagine you're a deer. You're prancing along, you get thirsty, you spot a little brook, you put your little deer lips down to the cool clear water... BAM! A f**kin bullet rips off part of your head! Your brains are laying on the ground in little bloody pieces! Now I ask ya. Would you give a f**k what kind of pants the son of a bitch who shot you was wearing?"

    Here is the stock on my 85 Finnlight.The cheekpiece is changeable, however by the looks of it you'd need to order a left hand piece if you wanted to swap it from side to side as it's not symmetrical.

    Knew it was something like that
    "Imagine you're a deer. You're prancing along, you get thirsty, you spot a little brook, you put your little deer lips down to the cool clear water... BAM!

    Since the summer this subject has kept me busy as I'm in the final stages
    of shaping a fully ambi stock prototype for a T3. One thing that annoyed me
    with fully straight stocks is that the cheek weld angle is often not as comfortable
    as with a monte carlo style stock.
    We tried to keep the angle of a monte carlo on both sides just didn't let it drop down
    as far. Meaning the cross section of the butt piece is slightly diamond shaped.
    Also we kept the comb as high as we could, to work well with large scopes.
    As usual, some like the looks others don't. Great ergonomics.
    Pictures of the prototype, the grip areas are not on the stock yet.
