I did a savage stock on an older flatback and the answer I found for mitigating stock flex off the bi pod was to move the swivel stud to the rear by several inches. It made a huge difference and was a very simple quick fix.

Talk to http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...bers/machv-93/

about that stock. I did something similar to a MK2 stock, but haven't finished it yet. Used a saw, but need a belt sander to finish.
