T\c r22 stock



Log in to see fewer ads
I have the performance center R22 w\ the wood thumb hole stock. I noticed the barrel contacts the stock. Should I be able to slid a $ bill between the barrel and stock? Basically I'm asking if I should sand the stock down so the barrel free floats? I'm a bit new too rifles and modifying them.

Jeff!

WELCOME TO RFC!

Great question, and the answer is, "it depends"

It's a very very very fine line as it relates to stock pressure! Far more importantly is, "How does it shoot?" I'd say action screw torque is far more important than a complete free float. Some contact is critical, and you can't add wood back.

If the barrel is contacting the stock on one side of the barrel channel then you definitely don't want that. Before breaking out the sandpaper you can try loosening up your action screw, pull the barrel away from the side that's touching, then tighten your action screw back up while still holding the barrel to the other side. Don't overtighten (20 - 30 in/lbs). If that doesn't work then your probably going to want to sand the barrel channel. You can use a wooden dowel, socket, etc., wrapped in sandpaper to make it easier. If it's not touching on the sides but on the bottom then it might not be an issue as already mentioned by Flysalot. See how it shoots and then decide if it needs to be free-floated.

Thanks guys! I put a 1/4 washer between the action screw and stock. I will see how it shoots with and without the washer and go from there. If it shoots better with the washer I will sand it down if not I will just leave it alone.

Always listen to Nick, he's the voice of reason.

Me not so much.

Without being judgemental etc, why a washer? Put the rifle back factory, don't over-tighten the action in the stock. Finger tight plus 1/2 a turn if you don't have a torque wrench and shoot the stew out of it.

But always listen to Nick. Unless it's about King Air's, Citations or Hawkers, then listen to me. But Nick is the guy, and he's patient and can make a 10/22 TD work. Me I just beat them against a tree and move on.

Agreed, not too sure what a washer is going to accomplish. If it's inside the stock it's going to lift the whole action, so instead of floating the barrel you end up floating the whole barreled action which you don't want. If your just trying to lift the barrel a little bit try a pressure pad about 1 1/2" in front of the action. You can use quite a few different materials to make one. You want something that can compress like a piece of rubber bicycle inner tube. Try it there first and then experiment with moving it about 1/2" at a time towards the front of the barrel to see where you get the best accuracy. Those rifle's come with a bb I believe so you'll probably get the best results with it the furthest back, but that's not always the case.

Ok I didn't think about the washer lifting the hole action. I will try the pressure pad idea. Also I do have a torque wrench so I will use it. Thank you again for your advice! The best way to learn is ask others! Happy shooting to all.

All of us started out with the same questions!

We want to help if we can!

I have a stock TC/R green stock rifle It's got a Brimstone trigger which I haven't shot yet. Again, I'd shoot it 100% stock with some decent ammo and get an accuracy baseline before you do anything to the rifle. Good luck and keep us in the loop on your progress.


Now if I could only find a few extra magazines! (I know the Ruger one will work just like a few extra's.)
