    M4 Cheek Riser

    Can anyone recommend a good M4 cheek riser for the sandard stock? The riser needs to allow for an attached sling and stock shell holder. I need the riser because I've mounted a reflex sight on the top rail and still want a good cheek weld.
  2. I tried this at the range, using buckshot and slugs. I only tried it 3 times, but it worked each time without any problem. I also have some snapcaps for drills and practice, and the shells cycle manually without a problem when I have 5+1+1 (with one in the carrier). If anyone here did have a problem doing it, please post here so we can know if it's a reliability issue with the weapon, the ammo type, or something else.

I just need to know if I should worry about any damage it may cause the weapon, long term, or other considerations (such as lube getting into primers of a fully loaded M4, etc).

There are many questions...I will appreciate any help. 1) After firing about 100 rounds, I took the gun apart to clean it. I noticed the tail of the bolt (the long skinny piece), near the end closest to the stock, has some shaving/chipping, and I can see silver metal where the black coating used to be. The marks are small (approx 0.60 cm), but are quite sharp and jagged. Is this normal wear while breaking in the gun? 2) The gas pistons: while cleaning, I noticed some wear on the surface coating on the
