Yeah, in retrospect it wasn't that bad, although it did require quite a bit of material to be removed to make it all work.How much stock is in the way? I have used a sanding drum to scalp out a place to allow the bolt to be removed. Or move the entire rifle further forward and glass in the lug. Have to put a dummy screw in the old hole. Lot more work doing it that way. Be easier to remove part of the stock.
I always had good luck with Bishop of Fayjan (sp) stocks.
