Archangel Precision modification

Picked this stock for my semi-ultimate build, and have been very satisfied with it. But I wonder...

Would installing a pillar for the TD screw area help with consistency?

The stock is made of very hard fiber reinforced polymer, with a steel receiver in use. Extremely tight fit. Small "print" of the receiver bottom shows (but is not felt) around the takedown area. I ordered pillars from Raven Eye (nice stuff). JB and shoe polish on hand. I do not currently own a torque screwdriver.

But is it worth the effort? I pillared my beater 10/22 with a brass fitting and it definitely tightened up the fitment, but that was also on a much cheaper poly sporter stock.

Thanks for the input/info, still learning the finer points of building.

I can't imagine it would be a bad thing to do. I have that stock on two rifles and really like them. Super tight fit but a firm dead hold lock down on the screw would feel good and be more repeatable.

Pillar is cut and roughed, applied the first coat of shoe polish to the screw and receiver/V-block. Hole is drilled in the stock and roughed for mechanical lock.

Taking progress pictures, will finish up after the kids go to bed. I work nights, perfect for the inner tinkerer.

This is my first proper pillar bed, still a bit of fear over gluing it together.

Done. I think it turned out well. Shoe polish came off with a quick alcohol scotchbrite chunk.

Being as the stock is so tight, not sure I need to bed the rear of the action yet, until it stretches out a bit.

Good job. How does it feel when assembled now?

Thanks. Honestly, not too much different. The takedown screw feels more solid, but I'm sure it will pay off in the long run. These stocks fit so tight when new its like poor man's bedding. After a while I imagine it'll loosen up and the pillar will come into effect.
