I hope no one minds me posting to an old thread but this was very helpful to me for handling my Sears Model 42DL aka J.C. Higgins aka Marlin 80 which looks pretty much identical to the 25 shown here.

The only change I did was I purchased a 1" long 1/2" ID drill bushing that is 5/8" OD, then drilled and dremmeled the stock so that it slid loosely into place and just under flush with the outside of the stock and captured the 1/2" OD takedown stud. Then I epoxied that into place while doing the bedding.

The drill bushing is a night tight machined fit. I started thinking about this when reading about pillar bedding, and it seems like a good addition. The action clicks into place like a lego piece now.

Just saw this yu...

I see that..and thats a pretty good Idea using a jig bushing

Love to see a picture of that...must of grooved or roughened the O.D. up
did you have to dress the O.D. to I.D. [or] I.D. to O.D. or was the slip fit good enough?

Hmmm...really a great idea

The bushing fit really well as is, the size of the take down lug is pretty spot on just a hair under a half inch, tight slip fit.

I kinda roughed it up a bit with one of the burrs I used on the rotary tool, now sure how much impact that had. But its staying in.

Here are a couple pics, you can see I need to touchup the glass bedding a bit as I under applied a bit but it locks up super tight now.

Plan on doing the trigger spring as soon as I can find one small enough, the pen/bic springs are larger than what my old rifle takes

You might try a spring from a Schrader valve, I have used these...just break the little needle off

A little stoning and or polishing the hook on the trigger can work wonders
