Unshim the scope base and shim the barrel. I used duct tape for a temporary fix, between the barrel and stock, but that's not the best way to go. This condition is called barrel "droop". It's common with heavy aftermarket barrels and stocks.

Another fix is to use a scope mounting system that attaches to the barrel, not the action, but you still want your barrel to be straight in relation to the action... The guys over on Rimfirecentral.com are very, VERY helpful.

Here's a link to their site. LINKY There's a thread near the top, right now, illustrating this very common problem. Good luck with your rifle.

Take some time and read some posts, stickies and then ask away. You will solve any and every problem you can imagine. Awesome resource, for certain.

Try glass bedding the barrel (full length) with full contact. Supports the weight of .920 barrels.
