Are there any DBMs out there that is a true drop in for a BDL inlet?

I'm hoping I can keep the option of going back to factory BDL bottom metal if I ever sell this rifle.

I believe PT&G makes one for a BDL inlet but the magazine used isn't the standard AI pattern. I believe it is a similar style and accurate mag brand, but some of the dimensions are different to suite the different style DBM.

Kinda what I figured. Thought I’d ask to make sure.

.223 AI, McMillan MR, only concern is going back to OEM to sell.

Edit to add: not that big of a deal, but if a good option was available I’d roll that way.

The Stiller bottom metal supposedly fits a BDL inlet. The few stocks I've put them in needed minor inletting in the mag well area higher in the stock, but these were stocks with aluminum bedding blocks and not factory stocks.

With good metal in place,you will NEVER sell and if you do...you won't loose.............
I have a bad reputation of getting shit right then sending it down the road. Figured it would be nice to be able to remove the DBM and put the factory metal back on if/when that happens.
