    Loose Buttplate Screw

    The smaller screw on my Rifles Butt plate doesn't lock in very well as I believe the hole in the wood seems worn out.
    What can I do to make the screw Hold better?

    The cheap way is put some thin wood shavings that are the length of the screw into the hole. Then install butt plate and screws.

      a wooden match stick will do the trick as Jak mentioned. Put a little glue on it first and let it dry before you put the screw in if you want to be creative.

        Here is a military repair during a rebuild of a SA GHS long channel stock. Note how the upper butt plate screw hole was drilled out and a dowel was glued in, then drilled for the screw Click image for larger version
