Marlinguy,
I am one of those who has put it right on the wood, and you're right, it seems shaky. I always feel if I bump it wrong it will pull out of the wood. I may just be paranoid. It hasn't happened yet, as I try not to make a habit out of knocking my guns around! But it is just a matter of odds. I like the idea of weighting the stock. I have thought about taking some wood out of the forened and somehow filing it with lead, but doubt I ever do. The shot idea seems easy and pretty quick with no real chance of hurting the gun. Great tip!
Merwin

I made a top tang for mine, and had it TIG welded inside so it wouldn't show. Then I inletted the stock to fit around it. Worked well, and I just cold blued it, and drilled and tapped for a sight I had already.

Could you post a photo of your modification?

One note. I have seen several top quality original single shots with cracked stocks due to lead shot. Over the years the lead oxidizes and swells. Just a beware, it probably take more than a lifetime to happen but....

Steve Durren wrote a great series of articles on turning one of these into a fine schuetzen. I believe treebone cuts a stock for it

Where did you find the articles by Steve Darren on converting the H&R to a schutzen rifle?  Thanks, Tom
