I just received a walnut cheek piece for a No4 Mk1 project I'm working on. It is nice, already finished, but it does rock a bit so some sanding is required. There were no screws included. Are they typically brass? Thanks.

Wow. That was no easy fit. Had a really big "rock" to it. Fits good now! I'll run to the hardware store when I here back about screw choice.

I have brass screws for the cheek risers that were included when I ordered out of Britain a few years ago. Two different lengths of 1"-1 1/4".

Yes. The one I got from England for my sniper clone a few years back was a much better fit, only some minor sanding, and had two brass screws. This one was from Numrich in the US.

Ah okay. They are so very much needed for scope use.

Agree! Been "ringed" before! It's buddy's sporter. He had a smithless mount from Sun Optics USA (that needed filing) a scope that needed shimming and a cheek piece that rocked like Metallica!! All good now, hopefully. Still freaking cold here so might be a week or so before I get to the range. Ice fishing tomorrow!

We have an "Auto Jigger" invented in Manitoba Canada. Not the most refined, but you put your small ice fishing rod in a holder, the machine is about the size of a 24 of PBR. Battery operated. Up, down. Eats battery power like crazy, (cold, under designed) but catches Walleyes! Jig and a minnow.packed the cast iron pan and butter. Should be eating good. Only -15C forecast.
