    Karstens Cheek Rest

    Anyone know where I can get one or similar in NZ? Apart from the one at dead eye dicks for $159.
    Cheers

    Looks like its coming from the states then. What model you all keen on? I like the 'c' model as it has a cleaner look. Requested a quote last night so just waiting to hear back but if there's a few interested I could change it and order a few to combine postage. Just don't want to end up with a heap lying around as don't have too much spare cash at the moment.

    Let me know if your keen, but make it quick as I'm impatient and need to order ASAP.

    Quick update

    James,

    Thanks for asking. The cheek rests are available and ready to ship, normally the same or next day the order is received. The cheek rests are $60.00 US plus $16.00 shipping and handling by USPS International Air Mail. (No Tracking Available). Global Express with Tracking runs around $45.00 US 3-5 days.

    All three models are .187/3/16 inch Calcutta Black Kydex. They can be painted after a good degreasing, primer and using Krylon Ultra Flat Camo Paint. All mounting hardware and optional padding for the upper surface is included.
    Asked him if the shipping remains the same if I order 5-10 units, once I hear back I will make an order so yell out if your keen.

    I got the one with the big knobs (go on laugh it up ) because you need to drop them to get your bolt out and/or pushing the cleaning rod up.

    I also put mine on then attacked it with the heat gun so it moulded perfectly to my A3 McMillan.

    Pretty happy with mine.

    Instructions specify when fitting be sure to leave room to cycle bolt and ability to remove it.

    Bring loading gear down. And I have a bathroom for you to help renovate

    Ive got a sniperaid (think they may be a NZ item?) riser if any one is interested, brand new, has been sitting around in my box of bits for a few years now.
    It looks very similar to the karsten model (A) but with round aluminium knobs. Got it for NZ$129 but make an offer as its surplus to requirements.

    Cheers.

    Niblet, are you happy to co-ordinate ?

    If we keep it to 3 or 4 per box that should be below the $400 customs limit as well.

    Even at 3 per box it works out to around $85.

    Also be able to do "regional" orders that way.

    If 2 other people in Welly are keen, I am happy to co-ordinate.

    I honestly don't think there will be many takers on this, it's just one of those items that if you need it you get it.
    This time round I'm just getting one and if anyone else wants to jump in on my shipping then cool by me. Happy to help coordinate a larger buy laterally though.
