Default Emergency question!!!!

My thumbhole stock on my encore is loose and opening day is in less than 8 HOURS!!! Does anyone know how to tighten it? When I shot the gun last month to check zero everything seemed fine.
But when I got it out to load this evening its loose. Any suggestions?

Good deal, how'd you do it? Is there an access through the grip cap or receiver somehow?

Exactly! The only screws on the thole stock are on the grip cap so I unscrewed them to see what I would find. And sure enough, there's a allen head screw that tightens the stock down to the receiver. Thank the Lord, I was sweatin bullets!

When you checked (Zero) last month was the stock loose? or should I say was it loose and you did'nt know about it. I'd sight back in to make sure your still on as a loose stock makes a big difference in where your gonna hit. Success to you on Opening Day!
