I finally got my McMillan Game Scout stock in to throw on my Sendero. This is my first McMillan stock, and after torquing the screws to 45inlbs, the bolt will not open (or close depending on whether or not I have the bolt in there when i tighten down the screws).
I have the factory plate on my Sendero. If I lose the screws, the bolt functions. Do I have too much torque on the screws at 45in lbs, and should the front and rear be tightened to the same amount?
I am super disappointed with McMillan. For as much as everyone talks them up on this site, the stock has two large chunks taken out of it. Im wondering what they are going to do about it, and if they are going to tell me it will take another 4 months to get in? Sucks waiting that long to have it show up in crappy condition, especially when I was banking on taking this up to AK with me.
That sucks that your stock has some chunks taken outa it. I know all about the impatient wait for the stock even got paranoid and started a thread about my long wait. I'm sure they will take care of it. Let me know if that screw length was the problem. I'm interested if since that's what happened to mine
OK, McMillan is really screwin' the pooch on this one!
So the front action screw I agree would be an easiest enough fix. But I am more than pissed about the chips. The attached close up pic you can see what I am talking about. They aren't huge, but still, if you shell out that kind of money for a McMillan and have to wait 4 months, you expect to get an impeccable product. Not only that, the second swivel for the bipod is off center, which you can definitely notice when you are looking down scope. At least she looks cool.
