Just curious, why an ADL ? Lots of the old custom rifle
makers preferred the Solid Bottom look
but they used hi grade wood .
If you don't like the BDL metal You might look at the Rem Detachable Mag. I have several
rifles and realy like the convenience.
I see no reason that you couldn't fill the bottom and In letting in and refinish the stock.
I have changed repeater stocks into single shots buy filling the entire mag well with a filler and
bedding the action (Solid bottom single shot) 100% and re finishing the bottom of the stock.
This added lots of strength and rigidity.
Let us know how/what you do.
