i have a newer mod 70 in 7mm wsm, fine shooting rifle, mine is the super stalker and i am wanderin if i decided to upgrade the stock would it be possible to install a box mag or a hinged floor plate, im wantin to put a fine piece of wood(for weight) or maybe a fiberglass i just dont care for a plastic blow molded stock, the action and barrell is one of the finest iv ever operated, any intel would be thankful.

I have a model 70 Coyote in 7mm WSM. Great shooting rifle. Mine came with a laminate wood stock, a hinged floor plate and medium heavy SS barrel.
I would think that you could find a stock here:

As to the hinged floor plate or box magazine, I'll leave that part to the experts.
