Re: Forster stock inletting guide screws

Hi David, I use 1/4" UNF for the three rifles regardless of thread pitch. You will find that the unf thread starts into the M70, goes in a short way, then stops (finger tight). That is all you need.

Yes, be very weary of any guide screw that is of a close fit diameter regarding the holes in the stock because once compound gets into the stock holes (always does), you will have trouble getting the action down into place- resulting in a stressed job. Then, as you say, it can be equally difficult removing a screw with no body thread.

Hope that helps David.
