Re: Recoil lug...?
You should use a thicker hardened aftermarket lug, such as Badger Ordinance, Holland, Tubb etc...
Recoil will cause the thin factory recoil lug to flex, and yes you do need one, the action will shift and wear out the bedding prematurely, inconsistantcies will cause accuracy will suffer. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
Who's doing the work on it?
