Default Question about savage 64 assembly (or rifle assembly in general)

i diassembled my savage 64 for the first time, following everything step by step and even watching a you tube video showing how to do it.

ive put everything back together, but i seem to be having a problem putting the assembly back into the synthetic stock, or am i even having a problem to begin with?

my problem is that when i insert the assembly into the stock, only the butt end of the assembly can be flush with the stock or the barrel can be flush, not both at the same time; it teeter totters, almost as if something in the middle is preventing the assembly from being completley flush at both ends.

ive but both hex bolts back and tightened, it seems the butt end wants to to tighten even more, casuing the barrel to angle upwards.

is the barrel supposed to have a gap between itself and the very front of the stock? i thought i remember everything being flush, alsmot as if the assembly 'snaps into the stock', with no gaps between the too parties. am i wrong?

thanks

Now sweat bro - It's just an anti-spam tool we use to keep the internetz safe. Once you hit about 30 posts or so, you don't have to worry about it.

The guys here are all good and knowledgable, so someone will be along shortly to address this issue for you, I am sure.

It looks like you have a problem with the bottom metal, or perhaps the stock itself.

This isn't a weapon I am familiar with, but just looking at the pictures, it looks like maybe you have put on your bottom metal ( trigger, housing, magazine & housing ?? ) prior to placing the action in the synthetic stock.

Can you give us a couple of pictures of the stock itself and of the action, out of the stock?

Two halves might help the guys diagnose your "whole" problem in this case.
