Mosin w/ Archangel (Promag) stock

So I was up in the great state of GA with family and we stopped by the local gun store up there. The place was packed. Found out that every year the day after Christmas, they hold a cost + tax sale. My brother found an Archangel Mosin stock under a pretty thick layer of dust and handed it to my wife saying "Tell your husband to buy this". Bought it for 130 bucks. Got back home decided to go ahead and move over the innards and see what it turned into. Turns out that the back of the trigger guard is about 1/4" too close to the trigger for the bolt to release. I penned an email to Archangel and asked them how much I could remove before breaking the trigger guard. I explained the lack of travel for the trigger, and that I didn't want to screw it up. I'll copy/paste their reply.

Chris,
All these Nagants are slightly different...hand ground triggers etc etc....it will vary. Worse case you ruin the stock I would still send you a new one as we are in the process of retooling the mold etc. 602-269-6363 IS THE TECH SUPPORT NUMBER if you like we can replace the stock now?
Thank You

That, my friends, is customer service.

Great customer service. Can you post a picture? I'm having difficulties picturing it.

I overlaid the original equipment on top of the Archangel stock, so you can see the difference.

How hard is it to work the bolt? I have a couple and you almost have to hit the bolt with a hammer to get it to close.

Mine was nice from the get go. It was a little rough when I first got it, but after a cleaning and a touch of Remoil, it's been a thing of beauty. A guy my brother knows owns 50 some odd acres in GA and we go up there a time or two a year to shoot at watermelons, cabbages, cut down pine trees with rifle bullets, etc. This rifle has been an absolute pleasure to shoot for young and old alike. It does kick, but when a first time shooter hits a cabbage and you have instant coleslaw, it's just magic, lol

I have yet to hear something bad about pro-mag.

if your Mosin bolt is that hard to work in its regular configuration you might want to give your bolt lug recesses a good thorough cleaning, if the bolt sticks when you shoot it as well, your chamber needs a good cleaning too.

I have found the headspace on them to be very tight. Good to have someone around that like these old battle rifles.
