    Hi Everyone

    I just purchased a Remington 700 xcr tactical rifle, when I removed the four receiver plug screws to mount a scope. I noticed the front hole was not as deep as the other three. Is this normal or was the rifle tapped incorrectly? I am new to firearms so any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks again.

    If the hole itself is as deep as the rest it was probably just not tapped deep enough check and see if the depth of the whole is same as the others
