However, if you want thicker pillars check with Dick Davis when ordering and I am sure we can do it. It would mean machining the pillars in the stock would be more difficult but if you insisted we could make it happen.
I only ask the question as the diameter of the pillars on your custom rifle
looked to be larger than on the edge stocks that I have seen. I didn't know if you might do something different on your custom rifles
. I can't see enough pressure being exerted by the action screws to crush any size bedded pillar.
