This is what showed up on the mail.
I broke down and ordered one of these new Carbine stocks today...

may have to order another GMHT barrel for it, or give one of TI's barrels a try

I have the new model stock 31139 and love it. Went with this addition to help with eye positioning with optics.

Love it.

I just did trigger jobs on 4 of these brand new out of the box... one thing to watch is there is almost no/nada clearance for the safety as it's centered and pulled from the stock.. so it rubs and rotates the safety leaving it half rotated and non-functional.. it did it on all 4.. thus, I relieved that area with a small file... just a heads up.

The one I had trouble with was the grey one. Have you noticed this problem with the charcoal version?

I measured the width of the stock cut out on my grey stock at the location that the safety has to pass through to remove the barreled action. Please take note of the fact that this measurement is AFTER I removed a significant amount of polymer with files and sand paper to provide a minimal amount of clearance to allow the action to be removed without breaking the trigger assembly group.

The width of the cut out on my modified grey stock is now .875". I'm sorry I did not measure it before I widened it, but I am quite sure that I enlarged it by a minimum of .1" in width and quite possibly more. If so, the original width of the cut out was less than .800"

Compare that to the width of the cut out on the unmodified birch carbine stock that came with my model 1103 10/22 which measures .925" in width, and that of the black synthetic carbine stock that came on a model 1151 which measures .900.

The total width of the safety cylinder on the 10/22 measures .906".

The upshot is that the grey stock I bought was seriously out of spec and Chaser's experience shows that this was not a fluke and the problem exists in both colors this stock comes in. Since it is quite likely that all of these stocks come out of the same mold, I would not be surprised to find that all stocks of this type are out of spec.

If you bought a stock of this type, check the clearance before you insert a barreled action and modify it if necessary. If you bought a complete rifle of model number 31145 or (charcoal) or 31139 (light grey) I would suggest that the first time you remove the barreled action do so with the hammer uncocked. That will at least mean you won't have to fight a cocked hammer that you cannot release if the safety gets rotated.

Try to remove the barreled action as gently as possible in as vertical a direction as possible to avoid rotating the safety. The safety will want to get rotated in a clockwise direction, looking at the trigger group from the right side. After removing the barreled action check very carefully to see if your safety lever has lost its "detents". If it has, try rotating it back in a counterclockwise direction, looking at it from the right side.

Apart from the issue with the inadequate safety clearance, this seems like a decent stock. It is significantly less chunky at the fore-end forward of the magazine well than the birch carbine stock and the molded checkering is nice. Although it is somewhat similar in shape to the wooden sporter stock, it still has the concave butt plate of the carbine types rather than the straighter, more vertical butt plate of the sporters.

In answer to the length of pull question, the LOP on this stock seems to be identical to that of the carbine models, right around 13.5".
