    bowing m1 issues.

    Hi all
    Finaly had enough of this bowing issue I have and wasn't sure how to fix so I figured I post here.

    Adding washers to the bottom screws will help.
    Edit. Here's a thread on it.

    He used a few layers of tape behind the shield to keep it ever so slightly forward.

    I see that he uses painter tape. Will that be ok or was that temporary? Also from what I read there the is for a frown bow right? The center is higher then the edges. So should I still do washes on the bottom or top

    Give what he did a try first. I would use aluminum HVAC tape though for a permanent solution. Just keep adding layers till it's perfect.
