    That will depend on the overall width of the Stocks once they're finished. If you maintain factory [OAW] dimensions you'll probably be able to use the original screw/nut.

    If the finished stocks are wider than original specs then you'll have to improvise and buy a longer [s/s] screw and possibly grind it down to sit flush with the nut.

    50 hours x $20/hr=$1000 pair of grips. I think you set some sort of record!
