    According to Frank de Haas's book the CF2 action was the same length from 222 to 300mag. I had a late model and it was disappointingly the same I think. Mine was in 222 and had a big spacer in the mag.
    Another place to look (google) is here http://www.airgunspares.com/store/content/87/BSA/ but this list only defines the early Hunter models by action length. Maybe because the CF2s are not defined you can assume de Haas is correct. I am sure a BSA wizard will confirm though.

    Yep there all long action. But a very good one that will be good for a rifle build.
    Good luck with your stock hunting

    Not only is it a long action, but the outline shape of the floor plate is different from the rest of the BSA production.

    A good shot at close range beats a 'hit" at a longer range.

    Thanks guys for all your input, I Have ordered a replacement stock based on the long action from the states. Looking forward to bedding it in and getting it back out hunting.

    I recommend that you unscrew the butt pad when you get the stock and apply several coats of thinned varnish to the end grain. BSA were getting a bit lazy with their stock sealing in the 1980s. If they did seal it, all is good but you need to be sure before going bush.

    Have fun, they are nice accurate rifles. By the way, if you have lost the trigger adjustment Allen key, the size is .050".

    Also, for those who are not aware, the mouse gun version of the CF2 is actually set up to feed the .222 Remington Magnum, so if you want to build a heavy weight .204 Ruger with reliable feeding, a CF2 in .222 with a stuffed barrel could be what you want.

    you shouldn't have any issue with numrich if the part your buying is under $100us if its $101us you need an export permit which the us govt charge like wounded bulls for

    That's why I was think UK no export permit needed as a stock is not considered back of a firearm until it's attached!
    Barrels also not considered a part until it has a chamber! Till then it's just a metal rod with a fancy hole through the middle
