I'll post my review here, and on a bunch of the rimfire websites. My plan was to stick it on a Savage 93 in 17HMR that really needs some added height. I don't know if you've tried to get the word out to the rimfire guys, but thats a pretty big market of people who like to make their guns look cool. :lol: And if the product is good... All the better.
I will PM on ordering...the Price is no secert at $55.00 plus $6.00 for shipping.
I have also sent Mel a PM after reading his offer the due a reveiw.
It seems that a few aren't familar with Kydex on some of the boardsand figured one of the best defences of my cheek rest lay in the material itself.
this is the tech stuff which I don't understand.
Kydex 100 Sheet
Kydex Â® 100 High-Impact Fire Rated Sheet: - Aircraft Approved

The other is made on Polystyrene and I can't find any tech specs, hope to have them in the morning from my supplier....In short an inexpensive hard plastic used for injection molding things like keyboards, toy firearms and household items...
Not something I would send to Iraq, LEO's, SWAT Teams or anyone else that goes into harms way. Sure it might be overkill for the rifle that goes to the range a couple times a year but the Airsoft guys in Singapore like mine and those guys are serious about quality gear.
Anyhow, Localfriend and Canuck the packages are on the way and thanks fr your time and effort.
As promised here are the pics. I shot some groups with it tonight and it preformed prefectly. Once adjusted properly the cheek weld is rock solid.
Wishing I could shoot more!
The only place I've seen you being hastled is at ARFCOM; it appears it is the guys home turf and everyone is supporting him. I also saw they joined at snipers hide to bad mouth you, so it should only be a matter of time before they stop by here.
Aside from those few people, your support is pretty solid. Most are 110% behind your work. The best thing would probably be to continue supplimenting your word of mouth advertisement with more of the traditional advertisement you have shyed away from in the past. Make sure people know who you are and what you represent.
As you know, "Imitation is the best form of flattery." and your product is so good that other people feel the need to rip it off. It happens to all of the great companies from Glock with S&W to McMillan and Manners. This slight setback should make you want to develop your product to bring it to the next level, that way people have absolutley no incentive to buy anything DWP has to offer.
Ship out a few more reduced cost samples to real operators who can give you helpful information. Your product has already come a long way in the past few years you have been offering it so why stop now?
Good luck with the sales, can't wait to see the new reviews.
I saw the post, and I am dismayed to say the least. I have had the Karsten Kydex Cheekpiece installed for about 2 months now, on a
Rem700 LTR in .308. I dont shoot every day, but most weekends I put 40 to 50 rounds down range at a deliberate rate of fire, aiming for
consistent groups and overall improvement of my abilities.
There has been a marked improvement since installing the cheek rest, due to better and consistent stock weld.
And though there are some really heavily recoiling cartridges out there, the .308 isn't a .22lr either and my Kydex cheek piece hasn't moved
from where I have set it. From either "normal" use, or accidentally banging the butt on the back of the 4WD.
As an aside the installation was too easy, the clear instructions giving me real confidence that I wasn't going to ruin my purchase, and infact was value adding.
Just my thoughts on the product.
--Remington LTR .308-Leupold Mk 4 4.5-14x50 M1 Illum TMR--
Just got my package from Karsten today, I will hopefully begin installation tonight after work.
I just have to ask, how do I order one of these Karsten?
I can't find any contact info on your imageseek-website.
Will you ship internationally? (I'll pay the extra charge ofcourse.)
PM me or email me on [email protected]
Head back to my review
I put his contact email up on the page (or PM him)
I will say, Karsten is a gem of a guy to deal with. Service is top notch, product is top notch, and for the money, the value delivered is top notch.
Good luck, Karsten!
