Well my real problem is that I removed the side locks as you suggested. Everything appears okay except for the lower stock on the right side is cracked. Not sure what I should do about that...if anything. My real problem is I can't get the locks to go back in place on the stock. the rear of the locks toward the butt stock do not lay flat. The are about a 16th of an inch raised. I checked in the FAQ but couldn't find anything that address this problem.
Any suggestions? Wish there was a good LCS shotgun gunsmith near me in Wyoming. Thanks Reagan
