    I have reproduction Garandicon style leather cheek rest on my scoped M1917. When I mounted it I put the pad on top of the comb instead of to the side as it was designed. This method puts the lacing on the lower left side of the buttstock instead of the bottom. It has been working well so far and makes a huge difference when working with a scope on these rifles. - Bill

    ETA; they are sold everywhere from gun shows to eBay to major retailers like Midway and Brownell's.

    You might consider one of the reproduction wooden cheek pieces as sold by Fultons of Bisley for the No.4Mk.1T. It was originally designed for the P14T and fits that rifle better than it does the No.4T. The only drawback is that it has to be screwed on with #8 wood screws.

    I know you want leather for authenticity. You might have a look at the Bradley. Kydex, but adjustable and no screws. I have one on my M1Aicon and it's great. Just not historical.

    No, the authentic ones would be wood...leather for the later US rifles.
