Unhappy Is this a problem? (Yukon Extreme Stock - photos)



Log in to see fewer ads
My Yukon Extreme stock arrived! I've assembled my action and put it into the stock but there is something that bothers me. The back of the receiver isn't flush with the top of the stock. I have another Yukon Extreme me with a standard barrel where it fits perfectly. This new one is a bull barrel configuration with a ER Smith fluted barrel.

Everything fits well. The action is nice and tight in the stock. No wiggling or movement of anything whatsoever. But, as yo can see from the photos the receiver is actually down into the stock about 1/16"...it bugs me.

So I'm wondering whether this is a problem once I start shooting the gun. Will it affect accuracy? Is the inletting just not done right, i.e. did I get a lemon or what?

What should I do? Send the stock back for replacement or is there something I should be doing to assure a more proper fit?

It's nothing to worry about unless it bugs ya..if it does mark it before removing barreled action and then with a sanding block and Med grit paper take it down to flush and then re-finish with Tru-Oil.

Oh BTW I have several that way..some I have taken the time to fix..some not.

Oh cool. I was wondering what to do before I started the Tru-Oil finishing I was planning. My biggest concern was wether or not it would effect accuracy. One thing I like about the Yukon stocks is that they are really nice and tight.

I'll have to decide whether to take it down to being flush or not. Thanks for the reply Chaser.

The next one (replacement) is going to be exactly the same...
It won't effect accuracy..the only thing that will is when/if you bed it then it will improve accuracy...the uneven thing is just plain sloppy but it is what it is.

I just got one and its the same way. Of course, I didn't discover it until I had 95% completed the finish on the stock and had started to install the action and do the bedding.

I was just looking at it again. Doesn't seem like much of a big deal to sand that down in the back. That is what I'll do. I have to start sanding on the stock anyway to get going on the Tru-Oil finish so I'll attack that area first.

That is exactly why I put in the barreled action before starting to finish. Wanted to see if there were any major issues that needed to be dealt with before taking sand paper to the finish.

Mine is the same. I just left it that way. Now the first one that I got actually did have a problem. The hole for the takedown screw was drilled off-center and it made the barrel not align properly. To where it pushed against one side of the barrel channel on the stock. I called them, sent it back and they replaced it pretty quick. No qualms about their service at all.

My factory ruger stock was like that though not quite as much. I sanded it even when I refinished the stock. It was like that for 30 yrs with no problems.

Smile Problem? No. Sloppy, YES!

That sloppy fit is one of my pet peeves too, first thing I rework after bedding. The stock profile should 'flow' with the top of the receiver, IMHO!





Usually takes more than sandpaper, a good rasp takes the excess down pretty quick, then sand to smooth, refinish with whatever you prefer. I use Deft lacquer or TO finish on the laminated natural wood.

Have fun, you don't have to live with that shilly fit!

And I think that is key. When you bed this gun (not if) you are very likely to change that gap. Not being able to see inside I don't know how much, but it may be enough that you don't have to do much if any fitting.

But if you fit it first, then bed it, you might over do it. Read the tutorial in my signature and do some searches on bedding... it is easy to do and definitely helps consistency in accuracy. Search for Vincent too... he has pics posted of his way of bedding that is serving him very well.

Hi Tom,
It's a Fajen Thumbhole Silhouette. Should still be available from a number of sources including Midway USA. The Boyds Blaster and Revival Yukon are very similar.

That one was modified with finger grooves in the grip and a cocobolo forearm tip.

I kind of wonder if they dont build these stocks with this gap on purpose for that very reason? To where it can be bedded without as much needing to be removed from the inside.
