|TheCapt||Just took recoil pad off stock. Hollow inside but see where there is a ridge through which the swivel screw goes, so I ordered a new swivel screw that uses a nut which I'll put in the inside. Thanks again everyone for helping me think this through.|

|ulav8r||Yep, that is the wrong screw for a synthetic stock. For it to be semi-reliable, use a block of wood/epoxy inside the stock so there is plenty of mass around ALL the screw threads.|

|Lt. Dave||Unscrew the recoil pad and look inside to see what thickness of plastic you have to work with. There's a reason why this one pulled out.|

|TheCapt||Thanks again for all the help. I will dig into the shank here and there and pour the epoxy.|

Compare that screw threads to a typical cheap hardware store sheet metal screw threads and you will see there is not a lot of engagement of threads to whatever that screws into.
Better would be the version that has machine screw threads and a backer 'nut'.
IF I had nothing else and HAD to use that screw I would deepen the shank between the threads with a tri-file and do the epoxy, and if the screw was long enough Id screw it up inside to even a small piece of sheet metal with the right size hole for it to get a bite. It is do-able with some futzin.

Epoxy and Swivel screw
Please see attached photo of screw. No nuts. Appears to be very coarse threads that bite into stock itself.

|gcrank1||Mine has a nut on both sides, one in the stock and.....me outside......|

|treeslayer||its supposed to have a nut on the inside of the stock.|

Epoxying a swivel screw
So you don't think the liquid epoxy will fill every void in the screw hole, and then fill the space between the screw threads???
