bedding your marlin



Log in to see fewer ads
search isn't providing much so asking in a new thread.

who has bedded their marlin semi? pillar or action or both??

is there a good tutorial to read up on it?

youtube has many with larger caliber guns but would like to find something more specific to or resembling a 795 bedding job

I have pillar bedded a Model 60 and 70 using aluminum spacers and JB Weld. It helped the accuracy in both. It was very simple and costs under $5 to do both.
Front pillar, not exactly pretty

Rear pillar from top

Rear pillar from bottom

My work looks pretty bush league but it works well. For a bedding job that is a piece of art look up a member named Pipestone, outstanding work.

Did the same thing (pillar bed); it is an easy job and works well. In my opinion, full action bedding is impractical, even impossible; the action is so narrow that there is really nothing to support it on except where the screws are, even the slightest upward pressure on the bolt will cause it to stick. Don't worry if you get it a little thick, JB Weld is easy to work after it has set up.

rear, top


front top


front bottom


rear bottom


Not pretty, but functional. Once the rifle and trigger guard on on, nobody sees.

Is there a thread describing these bedding jobs? I'm looking to do something like this on my 795. It looks like a straight forward improvement that isn't that expensive.

X2 ∆. Generally those long dissertations by the experts lose me somewhere in the 3 or 4 th comment. How about a bedding for dummies thread?

Yes, such a set of instructions would be nice for those of us wanting to do it on the job on the cheap and easy/quick.

Am I correct in assuming the purpose of the pillar bedding is to give two solid points of contact for the action? And that you can crank the bolts down as tight as you want, without flexing the action? Basically making it a metal to metal connection?
