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.

gcrank1 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.

TheCapt Here's what the rest of my new (hopefully) meat machine looks like.

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 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???
