tip for stoeger owners

Recommended Posts

Having owned two stoegers I learned this trick the hard way...lots of stoeger stocks chip out the the top of the stock, on one or both sides,,,,relieve the stock at the top corners where the wood meets the metal, doesn't take much...that will relieve the pressure and should prevent "chipping"...

 

remember, just a pinch, enuff to take tha pressure off...

 

 

hope this helps

I started doing just that on my first Stoeger... and my next Stoeger.. and one I did fer a pard..

I put a piece of shimstock..

credit card thickness where the stock meets the frame and the bolt goes though to attach the stock...

Any pictures of how to do this?

no pics, find a file that fits the contour, and file gently until you can slide something between the stock and the reciever where they meet on the top corners of the stock, thinking .010 to .020 of an inch...at the most a credit card thickness....

The problem is that the wood is too soft to handle the recoil & keeps pushing deeper at the recoil lug & the receiver ends up applying so much pressure where it contacts the wood that it chips. Relieving these areas is a temporary measure.

In order to CURE the problem you need to glass bed the recoil lug so it can not recess any further.

I, myself, found the error of my ways when I put on my first buttstock pad on my first Stoeger..

cut off the extra to keep same stock length..

but..

I overtighten things all the time.. put the stock back on. tightened it down..

put the pad on.. started getting chipping around the receiver area...

 

I'm a little bit of a woodworker..

I took wood files and cutting tools and relieved the area around the receiver..

OK.. "That looks good"..

but it takes a long time and delicacy to make it look right..

 

My next one.. I put the shim stock in between the buttstock and receiver tang..

Where the bolt goes through to bolt on the stock..

I used the old credit cards you get as samples in the mail..

Cut it to fit.. (thinkin' it's about a 1/2" wide x 1" long)

Drill a hole in it to let the bolt pass through...

I myself glue it to the end of the wood..

 

Rance <_<

Thinkin' that's the way I do it..

Ya get the same nice lines all the way around the receiver area the factory provided. :)

 

Oh yeah.. don't ask for pictures.. Lacey still won't let me touch the camera :)

What exactly do you mean when you say "relieve"?

 

Just a smidgen! Where the stock meets the action it should not touch metal. When it touches it

causes excess pressure on the wood and eventually it could cause a chip in the wood! The amount

of wood removed "as much as needed" usually very little, say 1/64TH. That would be my guess

without seeing the gun. Hope this helps!

Happy trails :FlagAm:

+1,

Better fiting wood would be the best solution. The next best is to glass bed to harden up the connection.

The next step is to junk it and buy a good shotgun. The game is won with the shotgun. The other two are a waah (rifle) or lost (pistol).
