So I was taking a closer look at my FG and thinking about getting a different stock because there is not much lockup and a bit of play in the heel area. It looks like someone took a grinder to the bottom of the heel on forward on the left side of the receiver and removed some material. Looks like there will always be a bit of a gap no matter what stock I use. Kinda makes me wonder if it will lock up well on any stock....

It actually looks like there are grind marks on the inside of both sides under the rear sight but only on the bottom edge on the left side can be seen while its in a stock. Looks like maybe 1/16" was taken off of the inside corner that should rest against the stock in these areas.
