    Cause of stock/trigger housing gap??

    I saw this picture earlier. What would cause the large gap between the stock and the floorplate/trigger housing? It appears the trigger housing isn't being pulled up tight. Is that common? How is it fixed?

    Improper assembly, shrunken or compressed wood.

      I have a stock that went thru a rebuild. Ordnance glued wood shims on both sides of that area of the stock. Shims are about 1/4 inch thick. Stock now locks up tight. Check the stock in question to see if it had shims that were removed.

        Thank you guys. I appreciate the replies. I don't own the gun, I just hadn't seen that much gap before and wondered what the cause was. RDS - do you mean the gap on yours was 1/4"?

          The shims that were glued in during rebuild are approx.. 1/4 inch in height. The gap must have been similar to the stock you posted. I surmise that ordnance milled the stock to a predetermined depth to remove any crushed or oil soaked wood. I'll have to take a measurement as they maybe 3/8 inch in height.

            Ok. That makes sense they'd want to get to good wood. Thanks again for the info!
