Put this on a month ago to spec, everything is tight yet I get this TWANG on the odd shot. Any idea what might be making this noise , should I worry as the groups haven't changed.

Re: AI stock on a Remington 700

There are only a couple things that could be twaning, its either the magazine under recoil, or the bipod springs (most likely).

But to make sure, I would take the skins off, and make sure that the aluminium tube in the stock is still secure, for and aft of the action. Little chance that it is not, but better safe than sorry.

Most likely its your bipod.

Nick, I don't have a bi-pod on it yet but I guess it is time to check things out.
