    Just wandered if removing the stock from your rifle and then refitting it or fitting a different stock will likely effect the zero of the scope on the action? Logically i wouldnt of thought it would as the scope is aligned with the action but is it possible the tightness of the stock screws would affect POI or something? I only say this as i had a little play with the HW95 now its in the 98 stock and didnt hit my targets :confused: ... Guess i might just be having an off day but sumin tells me i need to get to the range and put pellets to paper to check zero.

    Anyone ever notice change in POI after removing the stock and refitting?

    in short, yes it will.

    for the reason you have stated, with reference to how tight the bolts are, seat in the stock etc.

    pain in the ass as well, lol.

    ^^ As above but it shouldn't affect it wildly: 10 shots should have you back to zero again :up:

    as above, plus the stock weight and shape may change your hold so may take some getting used to. plus the distance between scope and your eye may change with the stocks so may put off accuracy again.

    Well I took my 95 up to my make shift range on my permission, was a nice enough day not to windy and MY GOD NO RAIN!... was a bit of a nightmare zero session though as the grass was so long pellets were clipping blades on their path through to the target. Regardless of this in around 15-20 shots i had my zero back to near enough where i want it. Group of last 5 pellets were all under an inch. As i was packing up a fat woodie landed on the hazel hedgerow around 40 yards away... Took him down clean from my lying rest position no worries with a shot straight through its neck, pidgie dinner 2nite :D ... So yes despite stock change it wasnt that much effort to put it back on target. Think i will spend another hour or two punching paper to fine tune the zero though and practice with the hold of the 98 stock properly before i go out on a hunting trip.

    With a different cheek peice you may also be looking down the scope a little different.
