I remember a thread awhile back of a guy bedding his stock so his receiver wouldn't wobble around - anyone have a link?

My STG-556 has a really loose fit, the receiver can move quite a bit side to side. I'm sure this isn't good for accuracy.

On a side note––-is this more of a stock issue or a receiver issue on toleracnes?

I have the same issue on one of my STG's and was wondering the same thing?

Also interested, mine was super tight when new.
About 350 hundred rounds now loose.
I went to the hardware store and found a thin O-ring 1/16th OD that would stretch around the receiver and fill the gap between stock and receiver.
Have not shot it yet (friggen rain) to see if it will hold up without getting cut between the two parts.

I did put an o-ring on my barrel replacement to fix a loose fit between the bbl. and receiver that has held up , it does not fit as well as the original that had a messed up chamber. .

A little JB weld aroudn the round plastic "button" on the front of the stock and a little bit to build up the surface on the front flat arear of the stock the receiver bears on. sand/file for a perfect, snug fit.

It was a receiver issue, not a stock issue. I bet your serial number is in the 7500 to 8750 range.

My one that fits tight is IN that range and my one that is loose is NOT in that range...go figure!

Mine is in the 9400+ range.

Has it been that long?
I coated the pin and front face of the stock with J-B Weld then filed it to fit.
It's been super-tight since I did it.
As for the barrel, I put a thin, silicone o-ring around it to tighten it up.
Eventually, I'd like to get the real fix from Ratworx.

Hey that stock is on "FIRE"!

Cool work, I might have to do the same. It's not so sloppy that it's in dire need of it but it has always annoyed me that it doesn't lock up nice and tight.

I find it a bit funny that when I complained of this exact issue on my replacement rifle a year and a half ago I was told I was crazy, now in a thread of 10 people responding half have this same issue.

MSAR and the "hive" all said no way-MSAR never makes any shit products-they are awesome

When will all you learn-sell the piece of shit to some newbie dumb ass and get a real STEYR while you can if you want an AUG.
