The bolt hole in the neck of my 1957 A5 stock is elongated , any suggestion regarding filling the bolt hole and redriling the hole for a tighter fit? The worn hole allows space between the stock and receiver.

I’d send the gun to Art’s. He drills out the hole, glues a hardwood dowel, and drills a new hole with a special jig. Without the jig, your chances of getting it right are slim.

Here’s a link to Art’s:

There you can find several videos of him fixing Auto-5’s, including the work you need.

Thanks, That is likely the best idea, but I want to do the repair myself, repairing and tuning firearms is a longtime hobby for this ole retired person, I appreciate your response.

I hope it works out for you. I still think it would be beneficial to watch how Art does it.
