Thanks for all the info everyone. I did have every intention on modifying the rifle to suit me, I figured the price was right to get started with it. I plan on upgrading the barrel to 26" contour #7 or #8 right away. Also I have been carving out a stock for another rifle, but I will just use it for the vanguard instead.

The plastic stock on my rifle is giving me fits. I about to replace it with a laminated woodstock and try having it pillar bedded.
I guess I really didn't notice anything about the trigger guard when I was looking at it, but should be easy enough.
Thanks again for all the info guys.
