    I have an frankenstein 1917 that I plan on using for gun deer season this coming weekend here in Wisconsin. I went out to the range this past weekend and sighted it in. When I got home I thought I noticed a crack on the stock and so took the action off for a closer examination (it was a nasty scratch not a crack). Will I need to head back out to the range to re-zero now that I took off/put back on the action/barrel? I don't use a scope just an old redfield peep sight.

    Thanks,

    Stu

    Dear hunting is illegal.

    Your rifle will still shoot to the same point of aim if you tighten the action screws correctly.
    But heck why would you turn down a good excuse to go shooting?

    That's true I don't want to shoot "Dear". I'd rather get da 30-point buck (a Wisconsin joke of sorts). R.C. sorry for the deja vu. I won't do it again.
