    Yes, i'll dremel off the top of the finish in all areas to get bedded and planned on drilling a little off the rear part of recoil lug so it gets a bit thicker in that area


    Question.... how do i go about masking off the area where the bolt release is? i know clay, but how to know the contour in there? Trigger assembly gets removed, correct?

    Do what you can with the clay, guess where you have to. You can use masking tape on some of the inlets too. You'll have to go back in after it cures and clean up and clearance a few areas. That's just part of the job. Yep, take the trigger out, easier.

    is using the Devcon plastic steel putty good for setting the pillars? or use the more liquid epoxy?

    I plan on using the putty for the bedding.

    Another excellent reason to have a state listed in the profile. I have a drill press, vises, clamps, indicators, 25 yrs machining experience but haven't the foggiest for a quick, easy 10-20.

    I’ve been meaning to ask this question for a little while now. All this talk about betting material shrinking over time makes me wonder about the glue that’s used to glue in an action. Does it shrink also?

    If not, could you just bed the action out of that same material?

    Thanks

    You do. But when its stuck to the action it stays there. When a release agent is used you already have empty space before you even start

    20180907_083025.jpg 20180907_083337.jpg Look up Richard Franklin's Stress free pillar bedding. He use to sell video for it. Have done several in byod laminates, all savage's and all have shoot amazing. You can do your self with this video. This guy is a well known and respected gun smith of high quality work. Once you see video it will settle all the debate.

    If you can feel those pillars it will really settle the debate
