Your lock panels are a bit large, TN rifles tend to have slender lock panels.

My version of the same kit stock from Pecatonica. Another thing I do is start a taper of the top lock panel from above the sear screw to gradually fade the wood into the stock towards the barrel. This way I don't have to cut a notch for the cock to travel in that will be visible.
