syn. stock ?

My friend has a Browning rifle with a syn. stock that has some give or bends at the front stud. If you pull on the rifle strap, the stock will move enough for the stock to touch the barrel. Anyone seen this happen before and what can be done to fix it ( is it a problem?).
thanks, Laine

Re: syn. stock ?

Factory stocks of the syn type are not necessarily the best. Most factories used injected stocks that are not real rigid. Yes, soft forearms are a potential problem. The better syn stocks after-market are usually laid up in layers with graphite, etc to stiffen up the forearm (Brown, Lone Wolf, etc). You get what you pay for. The factory stock on a Kimber is built correctly, that is one reason the rifle is $1,000 +. Don't know how to "fix" your problem without adding alot of weight and cost.
