Adequate Cheek Weld on Carry Handle AR-15

I have an antique.
Trying to get the cheek weld my instructor wanted was difficult because the scope sits on the now antique carry handle.  And no not detachable (1991 vintage). Cheekpiece for M1As make sense because operating handle does not impact the cheekpiece.  Not so much for an AR-15 where the charging handle needs  a bit of travel.  I manage to shoot okay as I mentioned yesterday.  Any suggestions?  How important is the cheek weld?


  1. There are companies making both permanent and detachable cheek risers online

  2. Put a new upper on it. Very easy.
