I do as keith described. I don't lash the gun down to the table, rather I put a couple of bags of shot on the muzzles. My last attempt was with my new little [ Turkish ] Dickinson 410 SxS. It has a through bolt, bent, but a week latter was back to where I started. A friend suggested cutting the through bolt and welding in a 1/4" universal where the wrist is. That way the bent through bolt wouldn't be putting pressure back on the wood. Hell, I don't know - could be worth a try.

Paul, I did that once. Not for a bend, but a difficult grip drop for a schuetzen Borchardt. It worked well

I find the through bolt causes few issues but I always clamp the head of the stock while bending through bolt guns. It seems to work for me. Some guns do need to be bent multiple times to stay put, why I do not know.

This is interesting to me, Paul, because my Dickinson is stocked a little too high for me, too. I get by it by adding a lace-on pad to increase the LOP enough that my eye gets down to the rib, but it's still not like I prefer. Do you think it's the through bolt thats bringing the wood back, or just the wood itself returning to it's equilibrium? And, how much did you move it? And, (sorry for all the questions) what did you do about the long tang on the triggerguard? I can see how it would push upwards if not re-inletted, or bent.

Thanks, SRH

Dennis Earl Smith advised me to open up the through bolt hole a bit. The trigger guard bends easily by hand. It may need a bit of reinletting by the tip.
