Also with the aluminum blocks in there the stock should not need any bedding or fitting? Can the shock be weighted at all?
It's hard to say what the total weight would be for your rig, I doubt it would be 10 lbs. I suppose you could remove the buttplate and add weight inside of the buttstock, but I think you will find the natural weight of the Titan to be well balanced for a rifle with a heavy .920 barrel.
Regarding the Titan's aluminum anchors vs bedding... good question! The fit/dimensions of every receiver is slightly different, especially if you are comparing a Ruger receiver to a Kidd. No mass production stock can fit all of them perfectly so doing a custom bedding job will always be the gold standard of securing an action to a stock. Our anchors simply give a more stable platform than wood or plastic like in other stocks. It's like having a pillar job built in.
