You know that feeling when you're taking something apart for the first time, and then you hear a washer or something of the sorts fall out, bounce off the bench and onto the floor, and you don't know exactly what it was and where it went?

Well, happened to me today taking apart my Christensen Ridgeline FFT. Gun was inverted, took the bottom metal off, and then as I separated the stock from the action, something bounced out and onto the floor. Best I can tell it was this washer below, but I can't for the life of me tell where it goes. Was there a second one that I missed somewhere?

My first reaction was that it was between action and stock, but it doesn't match the contour of where the action and stock join. It is perfectly sized to the action screws, so maybe in between bottom metal and the stock at the front action screw? Are there supposed to be two of them?

Or, was this thing just lying on the floor and I missed something else?

Thanks for the help!

I re-assembled and I'm now guessing it's between the rear of the bottom metal and the stock, as that looks a little low and not completely flush.

Anyone else with a Ridgeline run into the same?

Hmmm. Took mine apart on Tuesday. Did not see this washer on mine?

I’ve never seen a shim on any of my Ridgelines but I wouldn’t doubt it. I have one on my Ridgeline I put in a Manners EH1. I should get around to bedding the bottom metal with the washer in place.
