My compliments, looks very nice, adds another element to shooting when you build your own stock.

Grg, I have two for sale on GB right now. 😉

One of them has beautiful wood already! The blonde one would be a better donor for a barreled action.

Do you have any intention of creating stocks like this for the 591?

Do you ever fully bed the barrel on your 581 rifles?

Jcloer, never owned a 591 but I tried to make this stock so that it could be used to work off of for other barreled actions.

50shifty , when I bed a rifle if it is wood I almost always bed the entire rifle but I tape the barrel starting about 2 inches out from the receiver to the end of the barrel. 2 layers will usually give you a good float but keep the stock nice and stable. I had a Parker Hale 22-250 Ackley forearm warp on me once so I am always leery of that. That rifle was carried out in the snow and rain coyote hunting alot though.

grg, Thanks , I just recently got a 580 and i shot it a lot before i did anything to it and it shot fantastic . The wood did not look the best ,kinda oil soaked around the action screw so i just installed a pillar and skim bedded about 1" under the action around the screw and about 1" of the barrel in front of the action and left the pressure point in the front of the stock as from the factory. There was no change in accuracy it is still great ,but all i wanted to do was stabilize the old wood under the action. This is the first 580 line of rifles i have shot and i really like it,i did install a different trigger spring now have a good 3 lb pull down from the original 5 lbs.
Now i'm on the look out for a 581, these rifles are so trim and light and well balanced they will make a fine Squirrel rifle. I found a old Bushnell fixed 6x40 scope for $25.00 ,i adjust the parallax to 35 yds and it works great so far on the 580.
grg , thank you for sharing of knowledge on these little Remington Gems.

Now i am thinking of relieving the pressure point and glassing the channel as you have described and see how that works i can always add it back.

What piece of wood did you start with, a stock blank? I re-stocked a Mauser barreled action in a $25 reject semi-inletted Fajen target stock for a home-built match rifle, but I only had to open up the barrel channel for a new heavy barrel.

I started with a piece of Walnut, kiln dried. It was 2 1|2" thick which was fine especially since I want making a heavy bench stock.

50shifty be careful as the attachment to these rifles grows. I have been wanting to switch over to the Tikka T1X or CZ 457 actions but am having a hard time pulling away from these.
