My FFL has been away, so I'll finally be able to pick the rifle up next Thursday. It needs a new recoil pad. There's a problem with the trigger as well. It's been adjusted so tightly that when disengaging the safety, it actuates the trigger, but it's a quick fix.
I may have him install the recoil pad. I don't want to take a chance on grinding into the stock. When I fitted pads in the past, I was able to clamp my belt sander in my buddy's bench vise. Now, his place is an hour away. So, I'll just get it handles so I can get that rascal out to the range.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” ― Samuel Adams
