  • Glass bedding

    Well I'm getting bored with no projects so I'm gonna try my hand at bedding my HS Precision stock. It already has the aluminium bedding so it should not be too much of a chore. I bought the Brownells Acraglas kit & all the fixins. I'm gonna prep the stock, barrel, & action tonight.

    Sounds like a fun project. If you continue being bored I have lots of irons in the fire over here you are welcome to come stir.

      I might just take you up on that if I can get permission from the boss...I mean lovely wife. I think I like working on them almost as much as shooting them. I'd probably be way more nervous working on guns that aren't mine though.

        Most of mine are not gun related. I have a whole house/property remodel going on. I do have a Remington 700 30-06 I am working on though. I put it in a Magpul Hunter stock and am going to Durocoat it in a Riptile pattern camo. I got the tool to cut the barrel down so I can thread it for a brake and have to work the bolt down to thread it for an oversize knob. I plan on doing an ongoing thread on here when I get into it.

          I made the plunge yesterday. I prepped the metal with Johnson's paste way & used some modeling clay in all the nooks & crannies. Using the clay in front of the recoil lug recess was a mistake because it didn't allow the Acraglas to fill it properly once the action was installed. When I was cleaning it up I got a small chip on the bedding block epoxy. Both of these things could only mean one thing, mix up another small batch. I took the clay out of the front & applied the Acraglas thick. I put some of the wax in the area in front of the recoil lug instead of clay & it came out much better. Hopefully I can get to this range sometime this century. Getting the clay out of the action was a real choir & definitely the hardest part of this job.

              Looks like a fine job to me. Now all we will need is a range report. Good luck with it..

                After I get it tested I want to add a Timney trigger & then send it top Badger to have them inlet the stock for the Konohawk bottom metal.
