Simply because I've read where several other folks have shimmed the stock (on various other rifles), so the barrel would sit on the shims, and they ended up with a tight wedge pin fit and an accurate rifle. Worth trying to me since it's so easy, if the rifle doesn't shoot well then I'll try closing the loops a bit. If I do go that route I plan to put the wedge key in the slot and then lightly tap with a brass punch and hammer until it closes up some.This reply is not meant to criticize, but ask: Why would you not want to re fit the keys or loops in order for the stock to hug the barrel?
