Default Any TALL 10/22 shooters?

I’m 6’2” and looking for a 10/22 for Appleseed.

I’ve a Savage MkII TR (high ‘comb’) and have gotten 1” groups at 100y on a (very rare) good day from BR or prone w/a 'pod & 'bag, but I can’t really get a comfortable cheek weld when standing or in other positions. When sighting through the scope, the butt is way high out of my pocket despite having high mounts, and if I pocket the butt, my neck is all scrunched up and crinked trying to see through the scope. Besides, it’s a bolt action.

The ‘Tactical Standard’ 10/22 looks like it has the biggest stock angle off the barrel. So, tall shooters, how do the 10/22s fit?

I'm 6'2 heavy built and never had an issue shooting 10/22's in the factory wood stock. I'm. Also left handed. One of the accessory companies used to offer a bolt on spacer/ stock extended that added an inch or two but I haven't used the tac stocks.

I'm 6'2" 220 lb. I don't have a problem shooting them. They are a little short and take some getting use to.

I'm 6'2" 200 lbs and apart from the stock being a little short, no problems for me.

I'm 6-1 and have a Fajen adjustable stock on one of my 10/22's.

I guess I'm a midget...6'1" @ 190 compared to the rest of the forum, but I've shot 10-22's for years and never had any problem with a Redfield scope.
About 2 years ago I started shooting a Henry 22 lever action. I have more fun with the Henry and don't have to pick up near as much brass. At 100 yards on a prop or leadsled I can shoot 1" groups on a good day.
