The stock set that is open on the back end is for a No 4 Mk 2. They have the trigger hung from the receiver and so the design of the fore-end had to be changed. You can use it on your Savage but you will need to fill that gap with wood and pin it so it doesn't splay out. Shamu is really good at explaining the process.

All thats needed to make it work is a triangular wedge of wood filling the gap & gluing & pinning.
You can "fabricate" the cross bolt with a length of threaded rod & a couple of hex nuts.
The original is a long thin bolt with a nut on the end, nothing more.
The correct one shows up on E-Bay frequently as a "No4 Mk2 cross bolt & nut" for a few bucks.
Hope this helps.
Somewhere on here, probably in the gunsmithing section there ar a couple of earlie discussions on the process.

The rest all looks good to me. Pretty original, barrel has not been shortened, bayonet lugs are intact. Looks decent in all those respects.

Should turn out nice once completed. Keep the board informed, so far so good.

Even better solution!
You are familiar with the fact that ALL stocks still need some hand fitting to the individual action, yes?

Looks like a good rifle for renovation! It's also got a Zero bolt head which is a great place to start.
Keep us posted on progress and range report!
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!
