    anything is possible if you have enough money
    roedale do a tikka / AI -alike stock so perhaps that might be a good place to start?
    if the magwell positioning and stock bolt line up doesnt...... then its going to get expensive

    There might be an American outfit that makes a bottom metal for an A7, I don't know of any here.
    Better off getting a T3, or a Remington if LA or even better the new Bergara rifle. you'll get plenty bottom metal conversions for those.
    Of course you could get someone to measure, draw up and make one from scratch for the A7. Not impossible I made one for an old Sako and a Mauser to take AICS mags.

    Roedale......lmao. Don't bother. Pete has had a rifle part of mine since 2005 or so, didn't have to do anything to it, he just had it to use as a pattern. Been trying to get it back atleast since 2006.
