Conventional Stocks replicate the factory stock, but with highly durable and weatherproof polymer construction. This stock is for the long action blued rifles like the 270, 30-06 and 7 MM mag. Made of fiberglass polymer with a rubber recoil pad and quick detachable studs. There will be an 3/16 gap under the safety on all the Savage Varmint, Tactical and Sniper stocks. The action should only touch on the V of the bedding block and back of the recoil lug. The gap at the back is normal for Savage actions when installed in Choate stocks. The glass filled fiberglass will not warp or crack and is impervious to moisture. Stock will not fit new Savage rifles with center feed magazines. All Choate stocks carry a lifetime warranty.
