Re: Bedding the scope base?
I have bedded bases before, if you want to remove them, use a propane torch and lightly heat the base till the epoxy breaks loose. Also you can wipe a little oil on the reciever, you can then remove the base and the bedded epoxy will stay on the bottom of the base, if you have a base that is not machined perfectly. Bases and the old mausers didnt fit too well. I used some powdered aluminum in my epoxy paste, made a good strong filler.
