The Hicks Accurizer is not difficult to install, but you have to be patient and go slow. I buggered up the inside of my fore stock, but at least I got it installed and it did fix the vertical stringing problem on my .270.

Have you ever done one of these? Is there any reason for the screw to be slanted slightly as shown in the pic. so that the part next to the barrel is tipped slightly towards the muzzle as compared to the entry point, or is that just how it came out? In short, does that angle matter? Are there any things I should be careful about when setting one up and locating the hole? I will do it in a mill. I will have no trouble doing the actual drilling. I just want to be aware of any fine points to locating the hole and if it should be straight up and down or anled, or if it does not matter.

Is there any text information about that modification in that article that might clarify this modification?

Thanks for any help,

Danny

The one I did is 90 degrees to the barrel
Not sure why it appears to be slightly off in the first pic

Thanks for the info. I am guessing that it is a worknanship issue, but not having done it yet, I could not be certain. I would really rather ask a few questions before doing it, rather than making a mistake on the first one and having to consider it education.

Had one installed on mine also, along with a kepplinger trigger. Will get around to adjusting once I figure out what I want to use for loads.

I sent my No 1 in 7x57 which had vertical stringing, to EABCO for the part and their "professional installation". I also had them install the Timney trigger. I hope, since they offer them for sale, and offer the installation service, they've seen a bunch of them and similar to having better luck with an auto mechanic who has worked on a bunch of the model of your car - I thought their cost reasonable.
