After one unsuccessful attempt and a second try all but gave me a nervous break-down, I was finally able to finish the job today. A big thanks goes out to mtman714 for a tip he gave me on getting the action unstuck. As gratifying as it was, if I ever want another rifle bedded, I'll leave it to a professional.
IDK, Certain things,once they are accomplished, you understand why they require a certain level of ability that you likely don't posses. This rifle is at the low end of what I'll be investing in the future. I don't think I'd attempt this with one costing 3-4 times as much.
My wife just shakes here head when I start making changes like bedding.
When I mentioned I was going to do it to my 50 BMG, shae said "honey, are you sure you can do this?"
I said "love, if I could fix anything that needing fixin' on a $300,000,000 aircraft, and then sign-off the work and make the aircraft airworthy so it could fly 300+ people thousands of miles SAFELY, I can easily use Devcon (since I used it in planes too) and get this action/barrel, properly bedded."
She shrugged, laughed and left me to my work. Once it was done, she saw me smiling and told me how "Pretty" my gun is now.....Arrggghhhh I just can't win!
