To file those bearing surfaces accurately as shown in the link can be very tricky.
It's about an inch from the latch before it starts to give resistance. I can push down to about a quarter inch with moderate force. A sharp but not hard blow with a light rubber mallet gets it in place. I think I should just leave as is?

I would leave it. First if you attempt to modify the bottom of the stock which bears on the base plate of the trigger housing, there is a good chance it will become uneven.

If you can close it from 1/4" back with a rubber mallet, leave it. In a little time the wood will compress.

Also you DO need to visit the thread Orlando started about adjusting these stocks for optimum accuracy and function. I think it is in the "how To'' section.
If you have any questions, let me know.
