GI glass stock/scout squad issue

I am having an issue installing a new scout squad barreled action into a like new GI fiberglass stock. When I try to latch the trigger group in the stock the trigger guard will not swing down and latch into the housing.

Do I need to remove material near the mag opening to allow the trigger group to sit lower and properly latch?

Do you mean that the trigger guard is too hard to close? maybe the action is sitting too high in the stock or the trigger group isn't going far enough in...

If your triggerguard will close enough to touch the tip of the trigger, you can usually close it by greasing up the camming lugs that lock into the receiver legs.

Wood and polymer stocks will compress, helping the triggerguard close. Fiberglass, however, will not.

Does your receiver heel fit flush with the stock? If so, you need to remove a bit of fiberglass from the bottom, where the trigger housing feet touch the stock.

If the heel isn't sitting flush, then the high spots will be along the top rails of the stock, towards the front of the receiver. Dyekem works great when looking for stock high spots.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, but my mom is dealing with her third hit of cancer in under a year and things have been hectic to say the least.


The receiver assembly sits flush in the stock. The trigger group will sit properly, but the trigger guard has a bit to go to lock into the housing.

So, my guess is to remove a little bit of the stock from under the trigger housing "feet" to allow the group to sit lower and allow the guard to lock.

Sorry to hear about your mom. I'll pray for her healing.

Sounds like you have the right idea to get it to fit. Just go slow and you'll get a good tight fit.

Another thought: if your front band to ferule draw pressure is weak (which may be hard to determine since you can't lock the TG in, but you can try to hold the heal of the receiver tight against the stock with one hand while pushing the front of the stock toward the barrel) you could remove a small amount of material at a time under the receiver heal. That will lower the receiver in the stock, allowing the TG to lock in, and raise the front of the barrel up giving more draw pressure.

Thanks from mike in pa

Well now that you mentioned it the draw pressure is a bit weak, so I might want to do that which could help both ends.

Thanks for both.

Williamsport is North Central PA, I'm at the Eastern end of the state. None really around me.
