Re: Bedding the Recoil Lug.
Hi Jerry and everyone else who is following this thread,
The deed has been done, the action has been fully bedded with aluminium Devcon with no clearence around the recoil lug.
As for the stock, i talked to my buddy and although he did not have a name for the type of filling used(or he did not want to tell me?),he explained that it is a closed mould process which after laminates of GRP have been layed up, a core is positioned to form the action recess and the whole mould is filled under pressure, with a polyester resin containing millions of tiny plastic spheres.
When this cures it is incredibly light and very strong.It machines beautifully on the Bridgeport without any dulling of the cutters.
Is this the same way that commercial stock manufacturers make their composite stocks? i dont know, maybe someone could someone shed some light on these processes. Thanks.
