CAR telestocks & M4 telestocks are one & the same. The only differences are in construction (fibrelite old/new or aluminum.) In my opinion, fibrelite is the better choice w/ respect to resiliency. Aluminum tends to be a bit noisier, & can be quite uncomfortable in a cold weather environment. Also, once aluminum bends, well, you get the picture. I replaced my old style w/ one of the new ribbed ones & don't miss the rubber pad at all; recoil really shouldn't be that much of a factor - but to each their own. Nobody makes a pad to fit the new style yet, but I'm sure it's just a matter of time. Also I don't think that Cherokee makes a cheekpiece to fit the newer ribbed ones, but again I'm sure there's one in the works. Hope that helped some.
