    Can you convert a Winchester 1 piece bottom metal wood stock over to accept the 2 piece bottom metal?

    Is the metal the same size? Just missing the cut out for the middle screw/bolt on the 2 piece metal?

    Don't mind doing a little work if it will work........

    Like the featherweight stocks. I am trying to find one for my late 1960's 243 that will accept the 2 piece metal. Only thing I can find so far is for the one piece metal.......:banghead:

    Anyone have a pic of the bottom of a stock that uses 1 piece metal?

    Or measurements of the 1 piece metal?

    Call Williams. They make bottom metal for various guns and should be able to answer that query.

    After finding some pics of the one piece and two piece bottom metal stocks, I ordered a 1 piece from CDNN. Will need a little work, but I think I will be able to modify it and make it work.

    As long as there is enough wood to work with you can adapt almost any stock to almost any action. I have a Winchester Model 70 stock that I have adapted to a Mauser 98 large ring.
