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.
