    Can you just simply put on a used stock onto your existing gun, and go shoot? Or should fitting/glassing be done to avoid cracking and what not? Its the same model/year gun, just upgraded wood. Thanks.

    sure is quiet in here! If it fits like your current stock, yes. If it fits a little differently some work could be in order.

    You're taking a chance if you do. Just because it will slide on and tighten up doesn't mean it fits. Go for it if you like to gamble, or pay a good stock smith $50-60 to make sure. Larry

    A tight spot may result in a crack. If I recall correctly, Jeff Mainland at Kolar indicated that they check each stock for fit when they fit it to the receiver for a .001 clearance. Bill Malcolm
