So a very close friend of mine gave me a 1903 barreled action and a walnut grade aa stock. It is a rough cut and needs very much to be chiseled. The action obviously does not sit correctly in the stock. So far I have been taking lipstick and using it to see where it contacts the wood, but in some areas it is just so far off from seating correctly.

Anyone who can advise me would be appreciated, especially for those who have ventured into this endeavor before. I am really nervous about hurting the stock past "repair". If neccesary I can provide pictures of what I am doing.

Thanks,
Joe
