I have been looking at getting my first smallbore rifle. I lay down with somebody else's grunig cs racer and was in love with it. Sadly I don't have the funds to buy one yet. Would it be totally mental to buy a CS stock and grunig butt plate and mount a second hand match 54 action till I can replace it.

Or would this totally not work.


There aren't many second hand rifles around in the uk. So my choices for precision stocks is limited.

Not at all. I have an 18XX in a G+E RSIII stock. Best thing about the stock is many actions fit into it without requiring any stock modification.

Again, nope. So long as the Match 54 is in good condition and groups well, that combination may last a while. A good dealer should tell you which actions will fit the stock with/without an adaptor. The same adaptor will take 18xx, 19xx, and 54.30 barrel actions, so if funds won't stretch to a Grunig Racer, you can use a newer barrel than a 14xx Match 54.

Thanks for the replies will add the combination to my list of possibilities.

I like the idea off being about to get used to the same stock and be able to change actions
