First of all, trim the screw. Doesnt matter if its a mauser, enfield, springfield, model 70, model 700, or any of 100 other bolt action rifles, its not uncommon to have to trim this screw, ESPECIALLY if you replace the stock, or modify the general alignment of the magazine like you have to to remove the hump of an enfield to make it as sleek as the Model 30 lines. Secondly, glass in the two action screws by enlarging the holes, coating the screws THOROUGHLY with release agent, and glassing the holes in the stock keeping in mind that you ESPECIALLY dont want to overtighten the screws because if the 'glass winds up looking in CROSS SECTION like a capital letter "I" that is the best scenario; the larger diameter with the top and bottom parts of the "I" act sort of like washers in a way, to limit or eliminate any further crushing of the wood in the tang and recoil area action screw passages. This is ESPECIALLY true of most older Savage 110's and the stevens/springfield copies of em. The stocks are made of birch, which is SIGNIFICANTLY softer than walnut or maple, and tend to almost ALWAYS crush to some extent. This is true of the "hardwood" stocks used on most Winchester Ranger's and on the Remington 788. You will also find that the tang area of many less expensive synthetic stocks, like Choate and RamLine are actually HOLLOW in this area, and consist of a little plastic "tab" at the top and bottom of the tang area action screw which will not only "crush" but can completely crack out of the stock's pistol grip body casting. Aluminum or steel pillar "tubes" are also a possibility, BUT......they need to be SECURED in place, not free floating from top to bottom as this WILL affect accuracy in differing weather (heat and humidity) conditions. I dont see anything in the beginning about an accidental discharge, but assume from some of the comments that this may have been mentioned in an earlier thread.............I must say, I am not an expert on the Enfield action having only owned one over the years, and no longer do, so I cant tear into it to check out the "guts" but.............that having been said, the action screw situation should not THEORETICALLY have an affect on the safety of the safety mechanism, sear/trigger engagement, etc. Sounds to me like a trip to the gunsmith is in order, unless you are comfortable with personally disassembling and checking the match up of these surfaces; the contact surfaces of the sear to trigger mechanism should be the entire crux of the issue unless there is something VERY different about the mechanics of an Enfield compared to most any cock on closing action. In any event, retiring the rifle for these issues is akin to retiring your pickup because it needs a starter and new tires; kinda premature.............??
