I have a 1957 39a, the guy is I. Really. Ice shape but the fore end is a bit wobbly. Is the an easy way to tighten it up? Thanks. If I missed the sticky on this sorry.

It's not necessarily "easy", and if you don't know what you're doing it'll be glued on forever, but you could make it a perfect fit with bedding compound.

So then I'm guessing it's loose from age and shrinkage if bedding is the cure?

Have a the same issue on a newly aquired older rifle. My first thought is to use a thin layer of tape carefully fitted. Figure, if doesn't work, or look right, can just pull it off and try something else.
