Marlin 882, free float or not



Log in to see fewer ads
Is free floating the barrel always a good idea?

Does it have any negative affects?

How much of the barrel should I float?


Thanks in advance.

Hi hi pointy
Very good questions. I will wait with you for answers from the more technical fluent members. However I am in the process of trying a sort of floating on my Remington 581 by putting two strips of Duck tape, one on each side of the forward screw(it has only one). We will see what happens.

I've floated probably half a dozen rifles and have never seen it decrease accuracy. Sometimes the improvement is dramatic, sometimes less so.

I've never regretted doing it. I typically pillar bed with JB Weld. it's cheap and works just as well as Acraglas (and if you every need to fix a hole in a radiator, there it is waiting for you).
