Remington 700CDL, Stock touching
I found a near new Remington 700 CDL in .270 Win at the pawnshop last week. It is mounted with a 3-9X Burris Fullfield II scope. I paid $650 for the set up.
The stock was very tight on the forend, I could not get a dollar bill to slide between the stock and barrel. I took the stock off and noticed that there was a 1" section that had not been milled at the factory. I sanded the barrel channel so as to remove this protrusion. Now, when I tighten the recoil lug bolt, the very tip of the forearm contacts the barrel. Did I screw up by removing a factory "barrel Block of some sort?
