Floating

I looked at my syn 597 last night and the barrel is not supported by the ribs below it. The only part of the stock touching the barrel was one side of the stock. So with trusty carpet knife in hand I floated it all the way to the receiver and removed all of the excess material at the mold lines of the stock. The way to do it is not to use the knife as a knife but as a scraper. Gently scraping the plastic with the knife produces a nice finish and removes the material a little at a time.

Sorry, I don't have much to reference against. I'd only taken it to the range once pre-floated and that was a windy day.

I'm sure you did not mean what you wrote, but I was not "scraping on the barrel" I scraped the plasic of the stock. I know that was what you ment to say, I just did not want your comment mis-leading others.
