    That adjustment is made with a small hammer used on the forehand hanger which is welded to the barrel. DON'T DO IT YOURSELF.

    You must loosen and retighten the two set screws which hold the forearm iron to the forend wood as well. Loosen them and then unscrew the adjuster screw only 1/8 to 1/4 turn (you've probably already loosened that one enough - perhaps too much). Get a long allen wrench with the ball type end, due to the angle. Should be 8 or 10 inches long. The mono's have a slot in the fore-end wood that it lays in - if you look. The wrench handle should reach past the front end of the fore-end. Then retighten the two screws which hold the forend to the iron. I take them out and put in a little blue lock-tight. In fact, I always remove the iron and put a good oil finish or linseed oil coat on the bare wood under the iron. Same with the buttstock. Might consider doing it while you're at it. If you have it too loose the forend will snap on too easy, and you may have a little movement. Remove, loosen the two fore-end screws, then slightly tighten the adjuster screw etc. etc.

    There is absolutely nothing in this adjustment requiring a hammer.
