TIRED RETIRED wrote the information below. It is too good to lose in a separate thread.

There are a few other small touches that you can also try which may help NOT make your accuracy WORSE...

1) Check the shelf that the recoil plate sits on in the stock. If it is overly compressed, cracked or broken, your recoil plate will move around with each shot. This prevents you from getting the good recoil plate connection cited in the article. Replace the stock.

2) Having excessive creep in the trigger will mess up your trigger pull. Never try to stone or file the sear or hammer - just trade them out. Keep swapping them until you find the proper combinations that provides a smooth trigger pull (ok, relatively smooth for a carbine).

3) If your trigger housing fits loosely on your receiver, replace or tighten it. If you have a loose trigger housing, your finger pulling on trigger will actually move the trigger housing UP (until it hits the bottom of the receiver) before the trigger actually starts moving. This will actually make your shooting more inconsistant. Tightening it is easy - paper, match body, tape, etc shoved between the receiver legs and the edge of the trigger housing groove will usually hold it in place without messing up your carbine. NEVER EVER, EVER, E-V-E-R (did I say at no time?) attempt to peen or strike your receiver legs. You break those off and you just turned your receiver into an over-priced paperweight.

But the best thing you can do to increase accuracy is do what it says in the article. It does really work. Really.
