I have a model 7 youth .243 that I bought like 12 or 14 years ago and not only would i like to put a full size stock on it but the wood stock i dont think is holding up to the years very well. For one st the range it was shooting constant groups that measured 1/2" left to right hey thats great for this gun! but the problem is they are in a line and measuring about 2 1/2" up and down so this seems like a problem in my stock. I free floated the barrel and just got it out to take it to fairbanks with me in hopes of taking a wolf and the bolt wont close all the way. A while back I had the same problem and the front action bolt had to be filed down so that it would not hit the bolt. Well now i have to do this again and i know the bolt isn't stretching. so since anyways i would like to get a synthetic stock for it but i have not ben able to fine one for the youth model and cannot get a firm answer weather or not a modle 7 short action stock will fit it. It is a great packing gun and i would love to be able to use it but i need to do something with the stock. any info would be great.
