GUNSMITHING STOCK BEDDING
Out of stock
What does pillar bedding a rifle mean?
The process is called pillar bedding because the rifle’s action is supported on non-compressible “pillars” that are rigidly bedded in the stock to help eliminate accuracy problems stemming from faulty, action-stressing, metal-to-wood fitting.
What is the purpose of glass bedding a rifle?
Bedding will create a flush surface for the action and prevent flexing. Bedding also reduces movement of the action in the stock. Without bedding, the action may be more likely to shift after a shot. If the action shifts and does not return to same spot in the stock the rifle will lose the ability to maintain zero.
When should you bed a rifle?
If any areas of the stock are pinching or exerting excess pressure against the barreled action, accuracy will be poor. To set up the best platform for accuracy potential, gunsmiths, custom rifle builders, target shooters and hobbyists “bed” the rifle action and free float the barrel.
What does a free floating barrel do?
A free-floating barrel is a firearm design used in precision rifles, particularly match grade benchrest rifles, to accurize the weapon system. With conventional rifles, the gun barrel rests in contact with the fore-end of the gunstock, sometimes along the whole length.
