Not so with a 3P (3 position) stock with (1) forend slope, (2) butt slope, and (3) cast off where it cannot move back...

SilencerCo spec threaded with original crown. I believe Adco did mine since (due to the barrel lug) it wouldn't fit in my regular machinist's lathe.

The Dirt....

I was determined to have a great shooter so I used a proven P94S Lilja I had. It is also 1/2 pound lighter than the untested 1712 barrel I was contemplating using. That was the good news.

Affirmative, the tangs are shaped differently. The result is a small gap, say 2mm X 10mm in the rear tang area of the 1710 stock. I filled mine with some black epoxy and it blends reasonably well.

The 5091 preceded the 5098, and has a curved blade and an overtravel adjustment.

Very light two-stage, it was used, at minimum, on older 64MS and Exemplars.

1712s are porkers. Not that that's bad, think centerfire size and weight.

The 54 action is enormous. The 1712 barrel is 2.75 pounds. A 10/22 bull barrel is 3 pounds.
