They may or may not work. If the rifle that was bedded before had the same receiver make and similar time frame of manufacture, then you'd have a better chance.

Receivers vary too much to be consistent when trying to swap into a bedded stock. You'd be better off buying the stock and having it re-bedded to your rifle.

When my M25 is complete, I'm going to drop it on my bedded stock and I think it will work, but that's only because both rifles are LRB's and they were made within 1 to 2 years of each other. I expect the receiver geometry to be close enough.

But SAI has changed things so many times, I wouldn't expect it to work well.

Try before you buy. If it's a good stock but just slightly looser to your rifle than the one it used to hold, you can fix that by skim bedding. If it's too tight to your rifle, it'll be a headache to get to fit your rifle. Maybe somebody else's will drop right in.
