    I have a 1979 Bt-99 with the Monte Carlo stock and finger groove forarm thats a little loose. I would like to put that wood on a like new 1974 that has a stright comb and wide beaver tail forarm. would this be an easy swap or will there be alot of fitting?

    Try the swap and see for yourself. I would think that 32 yr. old wood would have shrunk to its smallest size in that time. The loose forarm might be because of the oil that has weeped into the wood over the years and makes it kind of spongy!

    my action is loose, wood is tight. I perfer the Monte Carlo stock. I would like to take the stock and forarm off the loose action BT and put it on a nice a tight BT. I havn't got the other BT yet.

    Although it may appear to fit most guns require the stock and forearm to be professionally fitted in order to be right.
