    I have a 20ga Stoeger Condor and the buttstock is very loose at the receiver and I am not sure how to tighten it back up. Any ideas?

    Take the recoil pad off and tighten the stock bolt.

    Every O/U I have owned has had the recoil pad held on by Phillip's head screws. There are slits in the pad where the heads are. If the pad hasn't been off, you probably can't see them well, but they are there. Use some dish soap to lube the screwdriver so it goes in the slit better and turns smoother.

    Just as ColtPythonElite said. The stock bolt will either have a flat blade screwdriver head or a hex bolt head. If so, it's probably metric. An Allen head is a possibility, never had one off on a Stoeger myself.

    Some European shotguns are made with a metric Allen head long shank pull bolt. I had to make a long shank wrench for my Dakota Sport which was made by Zoli.

    I can guarantee you any non-US made gun is using metric fasteners; have seen too many adjustable combs on Brownings and others foreign guns messed up by idiots using SAE allen wrenches
