Surplus,
I wondered about the tightness of the action screws. As far as I can tell the stock fits properly but I'll recheck it. I was actually thinking of doing the pillar bedding to see if it might correct the issue. The action screws never seemed to want to bottom out, I like to torque the screws to 55-65 inch/lbs. but couldn't get them to seat at that torque limit. Thanks.


I was referring more to the sidewalls of the stock putting pressure on the receiver, I know one of mine is too tight and sometimes it is hard to load the rounds into the magazine and the bolt tends to open also.
