If you use loctite - use the removeable stuff - blue in color.

There's no such thing as a completely drop in fit, unless the tolerances are so loose, any barreled action will literally just "drop in." Add to that the fact that wood products, even laminates, will move over time, sometimes creating fitment issues.

You will need to use inletting black to carefully fit the barreled action to the new stock, and the fit around the magazine will also need to be tweaked for the magazine to drop out. You do want a tight fit at the recoil lug, and I believe Kimber epoxy bedded the recoil lugs on those rifles. The replacement stocks that I have seen from Kimber did not have any epoxy bedding, but they had never been mated to a barreled action.

ill tell you how mine went togather. didnt do any thing to stock. i put in recoil lug which was a very tight fit. then i dropped the barreled action in it and inspected everything . then i softly tightened it and checked if there was a touching spot between the barrel and the stock with a 5 dollar bill. moved very nicely.. no issue there. then i compeltly tightened it and again free floating. mags go in nice and drop free when i pull tab back as far is it can go.. does that sound right.?? im new to this so .

What you just described sounds fine to me; much better than your comment of "pounding it in till it stopped."

Sounds like you have it in the stock nicely, but you still might consider epoxy bedding in the recoil lug area and where the action screws screw into the receiver. Then lightly relieve everywhere else.

I would shoot it first to see if you are happy with the accuracy and performance...if so, then leave it alone. I have done 5 of these swaps and never saw any improvement by glass bedding the action or recoil lug. These Kimber K22 stocks are pretty accurately milled and have a good action bedding system with the stock pillars and recoil lug.

I've never had to use Loctite on any screw on any gun. I certainly wouldn't use it on an action screw

ran into a problem.. cant push the botton to take my bolt out. i think i will need to do some fitting. also i have never shot it and its used. when i load the clip and cycle the bolt to see it it feeds the bullet doesnt come out of its chamber or does that mean it needs cleaning
