Shortened a stock

First time cutting a stock....

I have an extra model 60 stock and figured it could be shortened to fit my 11 year old. I cut 1.25" off it and refit the butt plate. I want to use it on a Model 70HC, so box magazine fed. I was going to use the model 60 trigger guard and the magazine plate, but while I was removing wood for the magazine channel, the section that would hold the front of the trigger cracked, so I had to remove it all and use the one piece DIP assembly. I added a T nut to hold a front slug swivel. Not a bad little effort on a Saturday morning.
