Re: synthetic stock question

The point was that at least my Smiths will not work with rifles that they did not bed if they were not done correctly and this one was not from the description.



I am sure someone will-----just depends on your expectations.

Re: synthetic stock question

Put it back in the walnut stock. If your accuracy comes back you will know you have a problem with the B&C stock. Got three screws holding the metal to the stock (2 holding the trigger guard, one thru the tung/floorplate assemby)? If you tighten the center one too tight (it should be snug w/alittle Loctite on it, floorplate will capture that screw so it doesn't get lost) you will induce stress into the action and your accuracy will go down the tubes.

A++++++++ to that! Costs $$$$$$ to deal with problems someone else created. Alot of time and frustration can go into figuring out what someone else did or didn't do and then correcting it. Most of the time it's just not worth the hassle.

Re: synthetic stock question

stock was glassed correctly, have done many over the years. only has 2 screws not three in trigger guard. I will figure it out. has to be harmonics. putting it back in the wood stock this weekend. Oh and checked the scope [zeiss] and the rings [talley] they are ok. probably just go with a h.s. precision stock instead. thanks!

Re: synthetic stock question

Good to know! Thanx! As far as B&C I send them an e-mail once and never got reply from them, looks like their customer service is unexciting...
