[quote] I did find today while shooting my cheek sliding on the cheek riser. I think some rubber texture like what Talon Grips offers for the Glock pistols would help. Stippling might be too aggressive on the face.
A couple suggestions:
1. Grow a beard. The facial hair will help with the rough stippling and your cheek will slide more smoothly. (also gives you that "Operator Look" )
2. Get some 600-800 grit wet/dry sandpaper and using a sanding block, smooth down the area where your cheek will rest and slide. Won't take much to smooth this out and won't harm the looks at all. If you sand from grip notch to recoil pad, from center of comb, down to the lowest part your cheek will contact, the result won't look like "wear", it will look like it was planned. If you want real smooth, just finish with some 1500 grit wet/dry. Use water while sanding to keep the paper from getting loaded with plastic.
On the mags not sliding in or out of the stock, try rubbing some candle wax on the contact points. You can also use the sandpaper I recommended above to smooth the rough edges. A few minutes with the paper on your finger or wrapped on a popsicle stick will make the mags slide in/out with ease. I have the reverse issue with a Magpull magazine fitting into the aluminum magwell on my TAC-21 chassis. I just smoothed out the mag. Call it "accelerated wear-in"
