    Read that a thousand times over. The butt is proper for the single-step socket. My guess is it shrunk as it dried out in storage, and will come back after a few years in my almost constant 50%...

    update

    I let the stock soak in a tin foil boat while I worked on everything else. I stock was truly disgusting and I was bummed out whether or not it would come clean. It must have certainly seen some wet....
