I've had my run-ins with so called gunsmiths. I thought they were all hacks till I met Kirby, and I think he would consider himself more of a gun builder instead of gunsmith.
He should give us the full contact info for this "gunsmith" so no one here will ever use him.

What a piece of dirt.

    This is the best article/video I have ever seen regarding bedding an action. If it could give a guy with no experience like me the confidence to do it, it will work with anyone!

    Just a heads up, Savages tend to do better with the tang floating, just my experience and advice I have gotten from others. I dont bed past the trigger assembly.

    Ditto^^^ Don't bed the tang, leave it floated. here's a tip, the last Savage I bedded, I used a piece of putty under the tang (very small piece) in relation to a couple pieces in the bbl channel to hold the correct height of the barreled action with the show lines of the stock, then you can chisel, grind & sand to your hearts content (I was also installing new pillars, which helped). With the putty holding the barreled action where I wanted it, I didn't have to worry about high spots or low spots or an out of square relation between the action & stock (if that makes any sense ). If you get some bedding compound in the mag well area or in the trigger area, so what, that is what they make a dremel or file for.

    The tang is the rearmost piece of the action. On a Remington there is a screw in it.

    The tang area is everything from the bolt handle back.


    This is what mine looks like
