    Matt,
    Is your stock a IR replacement?

    Was hoping the Recoil Plate replacement would have helped. Too bad it didn't.
    Your likely looking at having to clear some wood out from where the 3 circular impressions I noted above are located.
    It must need some relief, with it showing that much compression.

    What do you think? A little at a time? I'd try a Dremel where the drain hole end of the integral housing tube is hitting with a rotary type sanding bit.
    And maybe some 80 grit wrapped on a file on the back / where the 2 circular impressions are.
    Maybe try some flour or chalk on the wood or metal to pin point the contact area's first.

    Just some thoughts......

    Safe Weekend,

    'fraid so. Something about how the mortice was cut as its not quite square, or recoil plate and escutcheon are too far back. Maybe a Win receiver and trigger housing would clear??? But seeing the the cut is angled makes me think the issue is the stock.






    It's a midproduction Winchester stock. The GHD part of the acceptance stamp can still be made out.

    An old trick to make a bedding compound is to mix a little liquid black shoe polish in some vaseline. Smear a light coat on the portion you're trying to bed and insert the assembly. Remove it, where the vaseline is is the place to remove some wood. Repeat until the vaseline doesn't transfer to the stock.

    Just to wrap this up, shaved it back in both locations so there is a bit of clearance. The receiver fit to the recoil plate is real tight now. We'll see if it leaves a new impression after shooting, but I doubt it will.

    I'm curious now, if you actually tried the fit of the recoil plate to the receiver when you had it removed from the stock? The reason I'm asking is that my Underwood had a "sloppy" fit at the recoil plate - I tried all my spare recoil plates on the receiver and all were loose, but some not as bad as others. I attempted "tightening" a nice PR-B recoil plate using a CMPicon suggested method, and broke it in half! I ended up using the same method on a cast Post War recoil plate and was able to get the fit I wanted. This was dealing with the actual fit of the recoil plate to the receiver tang, and had nothing to do with the clearance of the the receiver or TH to the stock, though. - Bob

    USGI BOB,
    I sent him a different recoil plate. His IR stock has (Had) some messed up inletting. See the pics earlier to see the compressed areas when the action was installed. He's working on relieving this compression and trying to get some barrel hang for this...... His Shooter Carbine.
