Action Length Guide and Known Variations

Note: Due to the variations among models and tolerances that factories may or may not routinely adhere to, some minor fitting may be required to achieve a perfect fit, even on our fully finished drop in parts.

Although it seldom occurs, you must be willing to make these changes if necessary when your new stock or forearm arrives.
