I like to honor provenance when I can but I recognize that I need to do one of 3 things: sell the gun as is, send it out to be bent to cast off. Or even restock it and keep the original as is.
Some people simply have no reading comprehension, or respond without even reading. Here's proof:
Is it possible to remove the original stock and yet keep the original stock in a good condition should one later want to reinstall it? If so then why not restock to fit you?
1805 posts, and still nothing useful.
I like the suggestion from skeettx to try the lace on cheek pad first. Keeps the gun original, and permits you to see if the change in cast improves your scores.
