help w/ Savage stock swap.

I could use a suggestion
I rebarreled a Savage with a nice target barrel so it is time to upgrade the tupperware handle.
This rifle I have is the 10fp with centerfeed 4.40 blind mag, top bolt release.
I see a couple stocks (HS, Bell Carlson) that will fit a 4.40 rifle but not blind mag.
So it seems a conversion from blind mag to DBM seems in order.
So I was wondering if someone can recommend the best conversion kit for this. Thanks

Just buy Savage parts.
Boyds makes it either way if it interests you.

I agree and I have done a few swaps. I mostly figure it out myself and before buying, confirm and get tech support, from Boyds. What I miss, they catch. …

Be Safe !!!

was thinking about going to a nice black HS or similar. Though the older Savage Lo Pro varmint laminate stocks are nice
