    Hi, all.

    I have a New York legal Thordsen stock AR-15 with an exposed buffer tube. The Strike Eagle scope with removable cantilever mount that allows low iron sights to be left on the rifle.

    I am a beginner and may be sighting wrong, but it seems that I need just a little more height when I press my cheek against the buffer tube. I see a parallax shadow unless I raise my eye.

    I see that Thordsen has a cheek pad but it seems thin. Anyone have experience with it? Anyone able to offer a better solution for my aiming or the rifle?

    Thank you.

    It looks like if you put their Buffer Tube Cover on then you can use any of the CAA saddles or cheek risers.

    Some variation on those should fix your cheek rest issue. The saddle if you just want the buffer area put back to where it would be on an A2 stock.
