    Be very careful if you choose to fit those plates.
    And screw ups and you WILL end up with a split stock.
    Ask me how I know this....;o(

    I will venture there are several things that can and will go wrong. One the screws will split the wood. Tow too little seating pressure at the draws on the receiver or a tight fit putting to much pressure on the draws.

    Some of the comments were to oil the wood beforehand too pre-drill pilot holes for the screws then epoxy them in.

    I'm more then willing to listen to your experience.

    MJ, don't take this personally, but that's crap.

    Coachwood is very poor gun stock wood. If it's too dry it falls apart and if it's too oil soaked it falls apart. I've fitted the plates before when I had tons of spares here. All long gone now. I think Peter L's idea of cutting out, patching/doweling with a block of oak and refitting is much better for many reasons and will last longer. Just my two cents.
