I may be anal, but I didn't like the small wiggle and rattle caused by a disgined-that-way loose adjustment lever on my Stag 6 position collapsible stock. I went to the hardware store and picked up a few black o-rings that I thought might just do the trick. It did!!

It really only took one approx. 1/16th" thick and I put it between the nut and the lever on the stock. The only thing to watch out for, is if you go crazy and put too many or too thick ones on, you will pull the locking pin out too much and your stock might adjust itself whild firing.

Well, I guess 169 of you have better stocks or don't give a crap.

Never tried it but felt the need to respond so your feelings wouldn't get hurt

Doesn't really bother me either, plus I'm too lazy to do it.

It bothered me, but I just removed the roll pin and gave the nut another spin before replacing the roll pin. The O-ring idea sounds good too.

I also fixed the buttstock slop using the hair dryer trick. I removed the buttstock from the tube and squeezed it in a vice while applying heat with a hair dryer.

The correct way to do it.

Changing to a fixed stock may be a better answer.

I have 3 RRA 6 position stocks and none of them have problems with the lever jiggling.

You guys crack me up!

My first thought was to remove the pin and screw the nut on a bit tighter, but then I would have had to drill a new hole in the pin and it looked like it might be just too much to just fix a small wiggle.

My other lower looks better by putting the o-ring between the stock and the lever vs the between the nut and the adj. lever.

Now I feel a lot better.
