FB, have you tried bumping the butt of the stock on the floor or bench (padded of course) as you tighten the recoil plate screw ?
When reassembling I set the action in the the stock, tighten the screw a little, bump the buttplate , tighten a little more, bump the butt, tighten a little more, bump the butt, etc until things are tight. Read about this here on the forum years ago and it has seemed to work well for me. Seems to get things seated in their place as ya tighten her down. Might be voodoo for all I know???
Guess I should ask, did you close up the recoil plate after winning Gold or prior ?
Should also give kudos for getting it closed a bit without breaking it, some of them will break like glass.
