My 1928 Savage metal stock mount is loose on the trigger frame. Can this be tightened any way so as not to rattle? The wood butt stock is tight to the metal.

They are made that way, they all have some play in them. Even the original Colt made guns have play.

This play bothhered me too. I took a piece of masking tape and placed a piece on the bottom of the reciever where the stock slides on, then gently ease it on so the tape does not bunch up. It makes my stock real tight with hardly any wobble and it doesnt hurt the gun any and can be removed easily. Dan

I saw a guy that had thin strips of brass to take up the slack.

A small hunk of neoprene cut to size and placed into the back of the channel works like a charm for me.
