Suggestion for collapsible stock with adjustable cheek riser?

Any suggestions for a good collapsible AR stock with adjustable cheek riser?

Never found a need for a cheek riser on an AR. With the sight height on the AR, and the buffer tube being so high, it lines up just about right generally.

Oh yeah, I did all that cheek riser stuff to make a prism sight work. Then I went back to irons and didn't need all that crap and it was much faster without the riser and the prism sight.

Works very well, but maybe a bit heavy.

I typically like a lighter stock in a collapsible, but the CAA is overall really nice. The QD attachment points are pretty much unbeatable, the rubber butt pad really increases the stickiness of the stock. I don't use the storage at all.

I felt the front edge of the riser sometimes felt like it had too much flex, so I just jammed some cardboard under it and taped it up with this stuff like this.

I’ve never needed a cheek riser on an AR. My preferred AR stock is Magpul STR.

I got this one, on its way through Amezon

Got it super cheap like for $40+: suspicious, prolly made of chineseum but for the price I couldn't help it.

I'll report back on Friday when I get it.

Looks like a chin rest vs. a cheek riser.
