    Without fill and re-drill, depend on how loose the screw is, you can try Teflon tape, Scotch tape, and elec. tape (in this order) for a temporary fix.

    About as quick as you can do is stick a couple of toothpicks in the hole, cut them off flush and screw your screw in. You will be surprised how well they hold. Not permanent but quick in a pinch.

    Get a small dowel rod the size of the existing hole push it in and cut it off. Drill a new guide hole in the same spot.

    Depending on how enlarged the screw hole is one of the following will work and is darn near a permanent fix.


    Cut the head off a paper match. Insert match stick into the hole in the stock. Screw on the butt plate. Done.


    If it's really out of round might need two match sticks.


    Or. Place a round toothpick into the hole. Break it off even with the end of the stock. Screw on the butt plate. Done


    At your leisure make the repair with threaded inserts.


    By all the responses looks like everyone has been there at least once.

    Put a wooden match in the hole.

    if you want a quick fix you can use a longer screw you might have to drill a little deeper or go to the next size up squirt a little super glue in the hole LET IT DRY before inserting screw, the best way get some 1/4" dowel stock drill epoxy and redrill you can also put the super glue in the upper hole to harden up the threads dont go crazy you just want to saturate the threads have fun
