Aluminum Bedding Block?



Log in to see fewer ads
It seems to me that someone should be mass-producing an affordable aluminum bedding block for the 10/22. Not only would it eliminate glass bedding, it would make it much easier for do-it-yourself people who would like to build their own stock from scratch, because inletting would be far less complicated. Anybody else have any thoughts on this?

Cost of setting up a die for the casting would be very expensive, and that's pretty much the only way to produce something like this so that a profit could be made. If you had to machine the bedding block it would be expensive more so than a stock I would imagine. Not positive about all of this, just going by what little I have learned and know

don't need one.

There are bedding kits that produce extreme accuracy without epoxy already, a fully inletted bedding block is not needed on a 10/22 platform.

Yes I did. In the first line it says "When bedding rimfire rifles from the barrel, use this block as a recoil lug and stock bolt retainer", so lose the attitude. Most people only bed the few inches of barrel just forward of the receiver & adding a second hold down there might be just the ticket.

Please forgive me Mr. Cod. You are 100% correct, though I am unable to lose my attitude. It comes with the package!

I can see how bedding the entire barrel )or just a short portion and adding that block to the barrel could be done... but how would you attach it to the barrel? Bedding epoxy might work.

Would you try to completely freefloat the entire action or bed the mounting lug area too?

It looks like the barrel has to be drilled & tapped & the block is screwed on. With the block used as a second hold down I'd start with bedding just that portion of the barrel & go from there. This thing is only 12 bucks or so & I have an old stock to play with.....I might just give it a go.
