I have a Howa mini in 300 blackout inbound and am considering my stock options. The Bell and Carlson M40 style looks like a potential winner but I'll be SBR'ing the rifle (to a 10"ish barrel) and need to know the dimension from the front of the action to the tip of the stock to ensure it will accommodate that barrel length? If I have to mod a stock I think I'd rather go with a Boyd's as it should be a pretty simple procedure to just cut and shape however I want and repaint.

Anyone have a B&C stock for the Howa Min that can take a minimum barrel length dimension for me?

TIA

    I can get it this evening for you; if you’re interested, I’d also happily sell you mine. It’s gray speckled, whatever that color is called, and has been opened up for a barrel nut setup and bedded.

    No charge for the mods, and there are some other things I’ve done with it, but if you’re interested I’d happily send it on to a loving home.

    Requested measurement tonight.

    Thanks! I'm interested if the dimensions work, do you have aftermarket bottom metal on it or factory plastic?
