Re: Made a mistake,rong stock I think

IIWM, I'd stick with the ADL (no floor plate) model.

You can sell the bottom metal here and/or trade for a 21 buck ADL trigger guard. There always seems to be some one looking for BDL bottom metal.

I also think the mag, follower, etc can be used with the ADL. Stick it in there and see how she goes.

The ADL is reported to be just a bit stiffer than the BDL due to lack of the mag opening. In my book, stiffer is better.

Next you could consider an inline (bench rest follower) for shooting single shot if you should desire. Single shooters are better shots anyway.


Good luck on your decision.

I have an adl long action trigger guard, box, follower and spring. Even have the small screw that secures the box and the extra guard screw. I will sell it or trade it for your bld or what ever you need to get going. Let me know if I can help, I'm easy.

The other option is to cut the bottom of the stock. If you know somebuddy with a mill or are super handy and smooth with a dremel you can cut out the bottom of the stock and it will take the bottom metal. I did this on a Remington VSSF sotck , I liked the stock because it had a wide forend and was light, but Bell & Calrson only made them in ADL config, I picked one up for cheap figuring it wouldnt matter too much if I ruined it, through it ont he mill and went to town.. Everything worked out fine...

My question is can I just get a magazine and a trigger guard and new screws to make this work? Or would it just be simpler to sell it and get a new stock. Thanks

Call Stocky's and talk to Don and he will take it back and send you a BDL to replace the ADL
you have.

It sounds like a simple mistake and they will make it right.
