Has anyone seen this before? I've only had the rifle for 5 months, took it on 2 hunts and one of them it was raining. Every night back at camp I cleaned the gun as best as I could and wiped it down with a Remington wipe.
I'm going to call McMillan and ask them for a couple of new screws. It's just really surprising that this would happen so quickly. In my opinion it shouldn't happen and maybe I just got a bad batch of screws.
Thanks for the heads up. I just received a ADJ-HTG and can see how moisture could set there. Maybe a rubber plug would help but your right they should not rust.
Let me ask you were you satisfied with the finish of your stock when you received it? After inspection of this one I see what appears to be sandpaper marks all over it. For what I paid for this thing you would expect it to be near perfect. If those screws start rusting I will be really pi$$ed.
Post what McMillan says about the screws.
