    Does anyone know how to remove the stock on a Browning XT?
    Looking inside, all I see is a hole surrounded by a steel
    liner. Can't get an allen or screw driver into it.

    If you have the adjustable comb, you have to take off the recoil pad and raise the comb up to make the posts clear the stock hole. There should be a long stock wrench that was included with your gun. It is in the Styrofoam packing from the box, underneath on the bottom. Mark

    If there was no wrench with it, it's a 5mm Allen (same as Perazzi and Kreighoff).

    John. I have an extra Perazzi stock tool you can have. Or get one at 7 corners.

    I appreciate this thread, as I had the same question.
    When I replace the stock and tighten with the wrench, is there a certain range of torque needed? Or is it as tight as I can make it?
    Thanks, Russ

    It is also important to secure the receiver, NOT the buttstock, when tightening the stock bolt.

    The temptation is to hold the stock in the pistol grip area, and tighten the stock bolt. This places undue and unnecessary torque on the stock, and will very likely lead to a crack at the rear of the tang(s).

    Remember, the stock bolt is not tightening into the stock, but into the receiver. The receiver is the part you want to secure. Using a good pair of leather gloves to hold the receiver while tightening the stock bolt is often sufficient.

    Anyone who secures the receiver in an unpadded vice deserves the results.
