Orlando, if the receiver goes down into full contact after the barrel group's fit to the stock and the lower band grabs the stock ferrule, then the trigger group locks into place correctly, if the barrel touches the stock wood behind the lower band, it won't change much at all by removing wood in the stock's fore end.
Meanwhile, if the stock still holds the barrel up with the barrel group locked in place and the rifle shoots high with the rear sight bottomed, is that due to the barrel's muzzle axis pointing way above the line of sight axis?
