Nice!
how well did the synthetic stock fit? How did you bed the synthetic if it was needed?

The only minor modifications I made were to cut away the back section of the forend so it would fit around the block the trigger is hung to and then fitted a cross screw. The actual fit of the forend to the reciever and barrel required nothing special. A drop in procedure. 
There are very minor flaws/gaps but I can only assume that after so many iterations made from the original Sile stockset there is going to be a minor flaw somewhere. The magazine is my homemade Parker Hale clone...

A suggestion if I may.
Check out the angle between the front of the butt socket & the rear of the forend.
It may be a trick of the light but it seems to have bottom contact but a gap towards the  top?
You need full contact over 85% of the surface.
This is the biggest cause of beaten up draws. They are supposed to "draw" (force) the stock up & back as you tighten the main screw. Otherwise the draws take the firing shock, not the rear of the stock.

As far as the forend goes. There is is 100% contact where the bottom of the action rests. The King Screw has been tightened to 30 inch pounds. It has a hung trigger so the cross screw has been tightened to 18 inch pounds against the trigger block.
In an earlier post I mentioned that I've actually fired this rifle without the forend in place.  With or without the forend makes no difference in point of impact out to 100 yards.

I'm thinking of the rear face, where it contacts the front face of the butt socket, not the bottom.
That is where the recoil forces are taken from the metal to the wood.
