Yes...if you put 5 US made parts inside the rifle beforehand.

To answer your next question: "will cutting my thumbhole stock constitute making 2 US parts?"

It will be 2 parts, but I'm pretty sure they will still be considered foreign made.

just noticed your from Canada, I do not know the laws there. My answer applies to you being in the US.

Same here, but if ya find out ya can....... check out the beautiful walnut stocks (finished or unfinished) here, which would be a better more attractive choice IMO.

I went the un-finished route and placed about 10 coats of tongue-oil on mine, their quite lovely and functionally tough.

Good luck,

I'm interested in the thumbhole stock if you change it out.
