Ahh. Now I see the pics of the receiver.
It looks to me like the boss around the front action screw is the recoil lug, provided that the boss extends down into the recess shown in the top side of the lug. The barrelled action would drive the boss against the recess in the recoil lug, and then the recoil lug would drive back against the slot in the stock, located forward of the front action screw. No?
Not the way I understand it from the rep at Beretta. Maybe I misunderstood but I sure hope not because then we are back to square one. I believe there is supposed to be a tongue that fits in to the slot in the receicer... or else why the slot? Why not use the slot if it's there? Don't answer that question Now I am very anxious to talk to the guy tomorrow... will probably be losing sleep.
That's what I conclude from your photos. The front action screw boss contacts the back of the milled out section in the lug, and then the lug transfers that backward force into the stock where the angled end of the lug is engaged down and against the back of the recess in the stock. What do you think?
The boss fits loosley in there. I dont think it's designed to take that load. That is a very small area to absorb that amount of shock, especially for a peice of aluminum. I would think it would eventually crack.
I think I better understand J E Custom's post on your Sako action now that I've seen the photos.
Maybe this is what JE was talking about... I hope not.
