    Got my eye on a used XT, right hand with an adj. comb. I have noticed that some XT's have set screws in the right side of the stock for RH shooters and some have no screws at all. Are the invisible screws in the butt stock? Pro's or con's either way??? Thanks.

    Todd,

    The ones that you can't see are in the recoil pad area (recessed of course). These should be avoided like the plague, or budget a couple of extra dollars so that proper hardware can be retrofitted. There has been more than one shooter that has had the hardware loosen at the most inopertune moment.

    What is the cost for a retrofit? Would spacers help?

    Ken Rucker at Speedbumps Stockworks does a real nice job converting the factory hardware to something usable.

    A friend of mine sells a drop-in replacement that he makes himself.

    Send me a PM if you're interested.

    I had to get inventive to pull that off. I remember I used a piece of 3/4 thinwall to seal the bolt cavity from the rectangular hole. Then I sealed it off with the acraglas release. Worked perfect. I have this plastic that is a powder you dissolve into a solvent, not sure what the solvent is, they threw away kits at the university I worked at. It makes a liquid, then sets up into a quite hard plastic. I used that stuff with some black paint mixed in to fill the box up to where the bottom of the post holders would go, then locked the holders in with acraglas.

    Don't worry guys. YOU can have customers breathing down your necks to get their stuff back. Not for me.

    I had mine done by a gunsmith in Utah,,,$100.00, installed,,,it never moved when you did not want it to after that. Well worth the cost.
