I think you have done the right thing, so far....I had a old takeoff M/N 91-30 stock at the house . I carfully enlarged the barrel channel on the stock & thinned the already thin handguard to accept the thicked barrel.
The result was the rifle is a fine SHOOTER & a KEEPER!
If it's a rare year, buying another M27 and swapping stocks to have one fantastic rifle makes lots of sense. Maybe you'll luck out and find just a stock.
Till then it's just fine.
I'd keep the 91/30 stocked one because I 'made' it. Wouldn't be worth much anyway.
You must show us pics though.
