Question M1A Receiver Heel Gap

Hi everyone. I recently purchased a M14 stock from a pawn shop. I went to put my springfield M1A barreled receiver in it and there is a significant gap between the receiver heel and stock. I would bet you could slide a penny between the two.

When the receiver is in the other stock it fits fine with no gap. Any suggestions on how to fix this? I really want to use this GI wood.

Thanks

Is it the same with the trigger group installed? Sanded?

The GI stock doesn't have any metal on it so I would have to transfer the metal over from my other stock. I stopped when I noticed the gap.

It doesn't look sanded at all.

What is the serial number range?

Some receivers have a ridge on the right side that has to have the clearance cut in the stock. SAI fixed this after several years.

Not the receiver at that range. What I described was removed in the 030XXX-040XXX.

Okay, thanks.

Do you think if I transfer the metal over to the GI stock that it will suck down with the trigger group installed?

The fit on the GI stock is nice and tight. The fit on the other stock is loose. Its odd that the gap is on the tighter stock.

Treeline has complete stock metal pretty cheap.
I think you will find with your trigger group installed it will tighten up gap.
You could always put the trigger group in and lock it down in the receiver without stock metal just to check the fit.

It sucked it down to a acceptable gap. Around a thick business card.
