Looks pretty much like my 2 40XBs. Barley clears enough to get the rod guide in and the rod clears the butt but not the handle. My bore tech rods have 1 1/8" handles.

The bore guide will straighten out the rod as it enters the bore,no need to do anything other than maintain the usage of the bore guide when cleaning.The rods are meant to bend a little as needed.

That is a factory stock.

Either get a leather lace on butt boot thin one or make one from a gallon milk jug, l made one for my 40X in th 70s worked fine, use the opposite side of where the jug handle is cut to shape leave small tab in the corner, punch some holes in flaps add laces and your good to go, better than putting a rag over the stock in your situation shape to your liking and no need to bend rod it can slide on the jug.
Hope picture helps,
