There was a very detailed post about this problem and the solution. Look around for a sticky post on the topic since the solution was simple and effective. Too bad the search function is still 03F.

The fix utilizes about $10 worth of RC plane parts that include a tiny turnbuckle.  I have a set that I bought and have not installed yet, my trigger linkage on my SG works bullpup is pretty good and I haven't had any problems yet.

I haven't had any issues with the red dot on the SGW stock I have.

For the trigger linkage, that is another issue. Her's what I did. I went to my local RC airplane store and picked up a 1/4 scale "turnbuckle" and a couple of small screws and nuts for the screws. Cut of the wire rod, but leave enough to put a 100-110 degree bend on the rear end. Drill out the holes on the turnbuckle to fit the rod and the screws. Screw one of the screws up through the trigger plate and put the (extended) turnbuckle on the rod and the screw, add the nut to held it all in place. You likely will have to remove some of the polymer so all of this new linkage will clear. Adjust the turnbuckle until you have the lash you want, lock it down and go shoot. There was a thread with pix around here somewhere.

There is a nut that tightens the screw on the tail end that is off.
