It really has nothing to do with cheek weld, it's the distance from the trigger to the end of the stock.
Distance from the trigger to end of the stock is LOP. 13" is the average for most combat stocked rifles, and if you measure your M1, M14's, M16's/A1's, AK's, G3's, FAL's, etc, youll find they all fall right in that same LOP. Cheek weld with any of them is basically the same, head down and forward with iron sights, ever so slightly above that for a cowitnessed red dot.

If that's the case, I wonder why an adjustable stock is such a popular upgrade for ARs?
Its so the stock can be made "shorter", not longer. When you have armor and gear on, the standard fixed stocks are to long.
