Question 2 - I read that only a gunsmith or someone with special tools can change stocks out on Brownings. Is that correct?
I have never done any gun smithing so I want to make sure I can actually do this before I spend money
I have never replaced the stock on a A-Bolt before but I really doubt this is true. I can see where you might need to tweak the fit of the stock to the gun but a "drop in" stock usually means just that. And most after market stocks are in fact "drop in".
