I had to tighten up the butt stock on my Remington SPR 310 about 2 months ago, it had gotten quite lose. I was shooting yesterday and detected a small amount of wiggle in the stock.

Is this a common issue, is there a better method of securing? I didn't want to reef to hard on the bolt the first time, but perhaps I need to. Would you use locktite?

In the last year I shoot about 50 shells a week through this gun, the problem didn't come up for the first 10 months.

Don't tighten the bolt too much-- you'll crack the stock.

A bit of teflon tape or non-permanent locktite on the threads should solve this for you.
