Default Wood gouge

I noticed a gouge in my stock that was caused by the op-rod. It doesn't hit when dry cycling - happened at the range. Is something wearing-out? BTW I've only fired CMP ammo.

Op rods tend to flex a bit when the rifle is fired. I suggest relieving the area in question a bit and shooting again. Doesn't look too bad.
Regards,
Chief

Do what chief said, i have a SG springfield that i got last year that came with a new birch CMP stock on it that rubbed close to the same spot yours does. I just took a little wood off and it is good to go.

Commercial stock is probably slightly oversized
