Default Mossberg 500 help.

Have a mossberg 500 that I got at Christmas. It is synthetic and the stock keeps getting looser and looser. Is there anyway to tighten it up?? Thanks

I assume you already used a hex wrench on the bolt...?

Unscrew the recoil pad. There is a bolt in there.

I just replace the stock on my 590. You will need a long Allen wrench or screw driver depending on the screw. Probably 10-12 inches long. I do not have a screwdriver that long so I first chained drill bit adapters.
