Default calling all springer and stock maker gurus

Being a humble Pcp user I was wondering what the score is with action fitment for a springer , it sees from my experience that you can get all sorts of trouble from a seemingly dead pcp that has the action touching the stock in any other than the mounting locations especially if you have some form of barrell band .
So for springers is it the same ? ! Heard a few stories of POI shift that are unaccountable , if an action is tight could it cause issues and need freeing up apart from the mounting points , look forward from hearing some stories and suggstions

Oh you have started something now Vinny!

This is the reason I still shoot my Prosport in its standard stock.
Every PCP I have (or had) lives in a custom stock, but you dont mess lightly with springer stocks!!!! No No No! I am even putting off using a Bisley recoil pad in case it changes things. As long as I keep my PS central in my shoulder in it's standard stock it behaves, and I can get decent scores when it comes out for the PJ springer champs....usually. I think I had the highest HFT score this year with an untouched Pro sport and a fuzzy Panorama on top.

I seem to remember posts about this before, and it had driven some people to madness.

, had a feeling I might have, just gone from a standard stock with an skp butt hook that shot marvelous off the ground or on the shoulder to the cs and have a few issues , never had any faith in rubber but pads for reason of my own so put the skp on the cs , totally changed the balance as they weigh about 4 tonnes , still , switched back and forth between pads and still experimenting , one of our team went to the trouble of mounting lasers and fast time photograhy to check flip and the results were remakable on what he acheived

Not really same as a pcp vinny my tx200 lives in a warren edwards custom stock and there isnt really any mounting points as such with a springer they are better when glass bed in the stock.but mine doesnt move poi when hot or cold just when u dnt hold it the same every time which is why it makes them so difficult to shoot in hft

This cs stock couldn't be removed without substantial force when hot a fortnight ago.
It's not a one off either .

Believe me Casey ive tried different handling points and styles,the standard tx is notorious for being hold sensitive ,wrt glass bed in the stock , can you elaborate please I couldnt fit a rizla paper in mine anywhere , tested contact points with a fine layer of white grease on the stock

So do you consider this an issue tilly ?, in your opinion is it worth a bit of slacking off , mine comes out easy enough , just seems like a bit too snug, shame I aint a facebook account holder , I think

I can't say for sure on your particular one , but this stock , the trigger cutout wasn't central with the cylinder inlet. As you pulled the bolt up it pulled it in ****** .
If anything I'd not want your trigger block touching the front or rear face of its cutout
But whatever is suggested some guns just dont get on well with some actions.
Some prefer a rock solid inlet some dont. It's much like pellet batches!.

That should say some actions just don't get on with some stocks......

Hmm funny enough mine contacts in this area too , thats a starting point then .
I can appreciate where your coming from on some comments , would you consider alleviating an area between action and stock for the most part but still maintaining solid contact mounting points, the original stock really only contacts fore and aft on these locations
