So i originally had some wire tying the stock to the receiver (got the idea from the Boba Fett front scope mount) and still may do that if i find some uncoated good wire...
But after finding a triangular metal shim frok my junk piles... that had an oval hole so you could slip a screw back and forth... i ALMOST had it. Nothing with any girth can get in the way of the stock tab. Literally i used a micro computer hard drive screw and the post of the screw prevented it from closing.

Instead, i used my new pair of tin snips and cut a strong spring i salvaged from a camera. I cut it shorter so i could squeeze it into the empty space and after some pushing, i got it to keep the stock in place for the most part. I put e6000 around the spring to keep it in place for now. It seems to be working!

I know, its off center and i think thatd why it works. The spiral of a spring has a continuously rising height and that specific spot must be the height of the tab

I still have to cut the scope rail shorter, seeing as i have a filled in rear sight. I cant really bend this stuff so im thinking of making a little aluminum v block to act as a spacer between the back of the rail and the receiver

Yes! Mostly with metal files and some rough sandpaper. I don't have a bench sander/grinder and I have a palm sander thing but the motor burned out before someone gave it to me. real useful lol A dremel worked for a certain amount but none of my sanding drums will fit on the sanding bit. Maybe the moisture in my basement did that...

I got the scope rail bent, fitted and installed today.

I used a heat gun, ball peen hammer, and the floor to bend this to shape. A vice grip for the short section as it was hot. I also re heated it and quenched it in water? It felt right to do but i dont understand why? Lol
