Re: Recoil lug...?

Transmission fun has really been keeping me buisy lately!
I'm not sure which action you're getting this done on, but here's what Bruce told me:
All of our 8.5 model M, have them machined into the bottom with a crossbar .5 sqaure 1.0 long bolted in. The 10 model L also has this type of recoil lug.
Now our smaller actions, the models B and S do not have this type of recoil lug, they have a cut about 1.3 long and .2 deep across the bottom of the action. This forms a reverse type recoil lug when the action is bedded, and is plenty of recoil area for any cartridge up to a 308- 30-06 size. We have added the cross bar type lug to a couple of the B models over the years, on special request – There is not a whole lot of area gained using the crossbar VS the cut in the bottom.
I hope this clears up your question!
