Winchester model 12

1228 4
Hello.. on a winchester model 12 .. what would cause a slight gap were the stock mates to reciever. At the top area of reciever were stock is supposed to be flush theirs a tiny gap is it possibly just a stock issue or could something be wrong in or with reciever. I'm contimplating purchasing it but alittle concerned I havnt seen that kind of issue before.

Of course it is not supposed to be like that. Is it the original stock or a refit stock? Does tightening the stock bolt slightly fix it? Yes, the tang could be bent a little if the gap is just at the top. People do that both on purpose (to change the drop or cast) and maybe it can happen by accident. I am guessing someone changed the stock and did not fit it well.
