Cpttango helped me out with info, but I'd like to throw this out to the forum=Is it normal, or usual to have to cut out/open the trigger guard channel for the trigger guard to fit, when changing out a Rem. factory wood stock for a Rem. factory composite stock?? Wanting to avoid banging up my beautiful laminate stock dragging it through the woods. The lighter weight would be good too! I'd really like to put on this black stock, but the trigger guard will not fit flush into the stock enough to start the action screws. Any help out there??
