    So I've been a long time reader here on the site but have seldom posted anything.

    I have a couple weatherby Mark V rifles but don't care for the look of the Monte Carlo style stock.

    My question is this. Can the cheek bulge in the side of the stock be remove? Is the stock solid or hollow back there? If solid I would think that it could be modified without a lot of trouble, but if hollow could turn into a can of worms quickly.

    I have two Mark V rifles. Not sure why you want to remove the cheek swell, maybe for you own ergonomic purposes? Anyway, if it was me I’d look for an after market stock and perhaps keep or sell the originals. I would not want to grind the cheek swell off one of those Mark V’s for fear of the aesthetic result but that’s just me. Good luck!
