Thanks for the reply. So scout is out. Is there any after market bottom metal that is compatible.
I like the quality of my M77 over the Scouts that I have seen and I like the paddle stock for what I do over the later stocks. I use a Enfield No5 a lot and find the mag capacity a big Plus but the projectile selection limiting hence the Ruger big projectile (308) selection but limited mag capacity. Cull and vermin shooting.
