How would you interpret ‘cheek-fitted’ in the context?
Does it mean when you use that kind of sniper rifle, you put the stock against your cheek?
Thanks. It’s from A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway.
My Austrian sniper's rifle with its blued octagon barrel and the lovely dark walnut, cheek-fitted, schutzen stock, hung over the two beds. The telescope that fitted it was, I remembered, locked in the trunk.
