    Action is the same so will fit, but bottom metal and barrel contour may be different depending on when the stock was made. If a very early L579 stock you may find it fits but later versions are less likely to be a drop in fit as bottom metal is a little different from the L57.

    Luckily I have both bottom metals. I think I'll give it a go.

    Thanks
