Don't take the length for granted. I have a vintage walnut DSP stock that the ruger hex head takedown screw was just a thread too long and was bottoming out just at the 17-18 poundish mark. Just enough to where I didn't realize what happened. So here I go trying to take out the slop. Discovered the problem and shortened by one or two threads and now it is fine at 17 lbs. Also had an older Hogue stock that was not tightening up properly and noticed that it don't have a metal ecustation and I guess it compressed a little over the years. Shortened the action screw and now it is better than ever. If the action screw is way too long it is apparent but if it is just a hair too long it can be a head scratcher sometimes. For me anyway!
