    Action rocking in the stock

    As above. A friends gun is rocking in the stock. Looks like too much has been taken off the wood at the side of the action. Is there any cure to this?

    You/he have several options,
    1/. it could be that a high spot has been left & actually a bit more needs removing to stop the action rocking like a seesaw.

    2/. it could be that the mounting bolt is bottoming out before it fully tightens so measure the depth, it might just need either a washer or a shorter bolt.

    3/. Shim the fit with thin rubber sheet, as above a sliced open inner tube can be perfect.

    4/. Properly "bed the action" with epoxy, cavedweller1959 on youtube gives good clear details, but remember several coats of release agent

    Just to clarify it rocks side to side. Not front to back
