1710 Bedding



Log in to see fewer ads
I have a 1710 that was bedded. It looks great but the recoil lug will not seat in the slot. It is too tight. Should I file it? I did not bed it and it was out of town, so I would like to fix it myself. Or is there something to put on the lug that will make it easier to go in? Thanks for the help.

Do not file the recoil lug. If the lug will wiggle in, I would leave the stock alone also. It should, as the bedding should have shrunk a tiny bit when it cured, so it should be dimensionally larger than the lug, but not by much at all. Most folks I know place a single layer of electrical tape on the sides and front of the recoil lug when bedding to prevent this problem. It is the rear face of the lug that does the work. The sides and front don't need to touch anything.

I'd try a fingernail emery board to slightly enlargen the slot.

I would try some grease on the lug and slot first before filing the slot, and line the lug and action up , don't place the back of the action down first and try and pivot the lug in at an angle.

Jerry, Was the stock bedded with another action? if it was done with your action then you just have to seat the action as straight down as possible.

If another action was used then take a razor blade like from a box cutter and carefully shave a small amount from the sides of the lug, not the top. this should do the trick.

Thanks for the help guys. Once I made sure the action and stock were level, she slipped right in. It was tight but no troubles. thanks again.

What you have is the perfect bedding job. That nice tight fit is exactly what keeps the action mated to the stock so it doesn't move. In the good old days we used to glue the actions into the stock on bench rest rifled to obtain that perfect one piece effect. When you shot out the barrel, you heated the action with a heat gun, pulled it out of the stock and glued it back down once the new barrel was on.
