What stock does it have, specifically?

What optic are you using? What mount (if applicable)?

Do you just want a taller/static/permanent lift, or would an adjustable riser be more practical?

Most shooters using standard height sights or optics don't need to raise the stock, especially if they use/get a stock that has a pretty good cheek weld to begin with (tons of choices all the way around though)

it has the stock that came with the gun,it says rogers super stock and in collapsible

I put on a Nikon m223 scope 4 x 16 with the Nikon scope mount

I do want to raise my cheek weld a little ,maybe 1/2 '' to 3/4 '', I believe I would be better with adjustable

thank you

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. Try getting the lowest rings possible before resorting to a cheek riser. The AR-15 is a pretty poor candidate for a riser, as the riser itself must leave room for the charging handle to operate, and the sights are already pretty high. Making the sights any higher just makes your zero more complicated.

Yep, usually if a cheek rest will clear the charging handle, it is too far back to be where your cheek actually goes of you are in a good NTCH position. You are much better off just getting lower rings than trying to rig up a riser on an AR stock.

if you guys had any input on a good cheek rest to raise my cheek weld,I have found years and years of Beer & Pizza have raised my cheek-weld considerably, without any artificial support to weigh down the gun.

Yea!
That's the ticket!
