If you do that but let the metal extend higher than the top of the stock and fold the excess over so the receiver sits on the excess, when you lock up the trigger guard, you'll likely see a definite increase in draw pressure. Just limit that extra material so that it extends from in front of the bolt release cutout forward on both sides.
As suggested, I had to try it. My "wet noodle" plastic SA stock has slop around the lugs and weak draw on the ferrul. Why not try a 30 minute fix and maybe improve it before I go walnut or laminate with bedding.
Here's where I began...
The shape taking form...
Action went in tight!! A lot more draw... may have promise.
Main concern now is the angle of my sear and a possible double tap. Will have to load just a couple in the mag until I find out the hard way. Only range time will tell. We'll see!!
Cheesy cheap no count bandaid or Low cost bedding improvement??
