VQ Bedding System: What Am I Missing?



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi,

OK, I just got my VQ Bedding System in the mail. I'm looking at it and I'm looking at my 10/22, and I'm trying to figure out how it works. I don't mean how it's installed; I mean how does it keep the action immobile? I just don't see the principle. Would someone please enlighten this newbie?

Thanks,

Mike

Think of the big washer as being a more stable platform for the action to rest on, then the presure pad just applies that small amount of force to help tune the barrel harmonics.

VQ Bedding

When I installed my VQ pilar mount I didnt like the gaps it left so I countersunk the top of the mount by carefully using a dremel mounted stone to remove the wood. Test fit OFTEN you cant put it back!!

Thanks, guys. I'm now a little less ignorant.

+1 with MKnarr. I bought the same kit, looked at it and thought for what? I used the bit with the stop on it for a reference; then I bored all the way to the brass escuteon(?), deepened and roughed up the bedding spot, judicious use of modeling clay and release agent; then glass bedded the barrel and built a new pillar. Couldn't stop there so I did the rest of the bedding job that was in tips and tricks (it's curing now). Also have the fore end adjustable pressure point ready to go just in case I need it.
