To the ones that have replaced their m70b1 fixed stocks, what are y'all using? I can't seem to get a proper cheek weld and sight picture at the same time..I'm either above the sights, or have my cheekbone crammed into the stock, which under recoil hurts like a b***h after a few rounds. Suggestions?

Probably the most economical option would be this:

Another option is to use an M76 style stock by Ironwood Designs:

And lastly, there is the Ace Receiver Block, which lets you use any Ace stock designed to fit their modular receiver block:

Two options that require no cash outlay are to ride the stock up further (get your face closer to the receiver) or sand the comb of the stock down until it fits you better.

I do the former on the one B1 I have with the standard M70 stock and it works fine for me. My other B1 has a M76 butt stock on it.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Good judgement comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.

Yeah I've been throwing around the idea of going with ace and putting on one of their folders, so expensive though.

I considered sanding the stock down, but I really hate to on this particular rifle. She was built off old parts and they're all matching numbers so don't want to mess it up if there's any collectable value there.

If you still want the traditional look just with a better cheek weld then the M76 stock looks like an excellent option. I agree with you not wanting to alter the original stock for future collector/resale purposes.
