Sometimes you might have do some fitting, on my Mod.116, Sav, weather warrior I had to take a bunch out of the barrel Chanel, and some out of the action..you want to make sure the barrel isn't touching..

a dremel tool is a must..good luck

I bought one last year for my Winchester Mod 70 in a 30-06. It was a finished laminated stock. Nice looking, but I could never get it to fit right. Floor plate wouldn't open, once I got that to work ok, the bolt couldn't open. I put the old stock back on.

I've heard this from a few guys including my gunsmith.That's why i'll let him do it. He's charging $175 to bed the action & fit the stock and touch-up any finish that he's got to remove to fit the barrel.........IMO it's worth it cause i've never done it before.

Installed serveral in my shop. Good quality at a very good price. Never had too many issues fitting or finishing their stocks.

Jerry,

I just got my Win Model 70 (30-06) back from the gunsmith. Fitted, glass bedded, aluminum pillars, custom crown on the end of the barrel, new Leupold base and rings, and a new Swaro to top it off

Jerry,

Fitted, glass bedded, aluminum pillars, and custom crown on the end of the barrel came to $180. I also bought the Leupold base and rings from him and he mounted and bore sighted the scope for $60.

Hope this helps . . . Rob
