SAI Receiver in USGI Stock

I put my Socom 16 receiver into a usgi wood stock that I got from Treeline and, while it fit well and there's no slop, I noticed some light that comes through. Mainly down by the op rod channel. Is this normal? I'm new to the platform and only have experience with my Springfield version but thought that all receivers should generally be the same. It doesn't wiggle or have any play so maybe the old stocks were just cut differently?



Thanks from Tommo

MY SAI standard fits the same way in my USGI fiberglass stock. My understanding is that as long as the heel of the receiver fits tight you are good to go. I haven't noticed any issues with it at the range at least.

The heel seems to be in solidly. I need to get my hands on a usgi receiver to compare. Interesting they have some minor differences

The open area ahead of the heel is supposed to be that way per match conditioning instructions. My understanding is it allows the receiver to have a little room to flex when the bolt is moving...

a picture of your stock's trigger pad area would be nice:: In picture # 1 i can see daylight under the pad..;;Maybe just a light sanding of the area;; and than re-build it up with some J.B. Weld; to bring the receiver heel down??/

You should be alright! Look at those brass markings on the OP rod. You know what that means?

Your rifle is loved.

I pushed it in a bit better this time and the gap isn't as bad.

FYI, one of the accurizing tricks on the old M1 was to shave a little bit of wood off the stock in the same area you are seeing daylight. For some reason it improved the accuracy, don't know why. Maybe something about loading the reciever when trigger group was locked in.
