Agreed, but then again Richard's doesn't sell finished "production" stocks. What they sell is like an 80% AR receiver. The bulk of the work is done, but it's in no way, shape or form ready to be assembled into a functioning firearm. You still need to go through and finish most every surface and complete the last 20% of the work to make it into a functional part.
With that said, could Richards modify their pattern stock to include a channel for the bolt? Sure they could. Would it eliminate the problem of having to pull the barreled action out of the stock to remove the bolt? Probably not. It's just the way the stock is designed, and as someone else noted - it clearly states high cheek piece in the description.
