I am having a new barrel installed on my sako l691 action, just wondering if you can install a Remington style recoil lug on the action? The action sits in a h and s percision stock. I know I would have to have the stock inletted for the new recoil lug. Just wondering if it will work?

I will have to give him a call.
I guess my other question is would it be worth while to add the Remington recoil lug. The action doesn’t have the L shaped lug. It is one of the magnum research rifles. Looking to just keep the action rock solid in the stock.

Yes you can use a Remington style recoil lug. You will/may have to adjust the recoil slot in the stock a little and turn a recoil lug boss on the barrel to center it, but your gunsmith should be able to do this if he can cut metric threads for the barrel tenon.

I personally feel it is a better system than the existing one.

I agree that it seems to be a lot better system. My smith can cut metric threads.
