Re: Holland Recoil Lug
Again, I agree with Chris, send if off, get the recoil lug recess opened up correctly(with a milling machine...), have the barrel channel opened up to accept the new barrel contour with proper clearance and have her professionally bedded.
I assure you it will be worth the money if you have it done correctly.
This is in no way a shot at you or anyone else trying to so some work at home with their rifles but in this case, to open the stock up enough to accept the Holland lug will require bedded to strengthen the stock to where it needs to be for accuracy.
Plus opening up a barrel channel can be frustrating if its the first one you have ever done. Bedding and the recoil lugs relationship to the stock is very critical to extreme consistancy. If you are not 100% confident that you know how to do it right I would recommend sending it to someone that specializes in this work.
It will be money well spent in the long run.
The Holland Signature Laminates stock, either the heavy varminter or sporter is a great choice and maybe the best laminate stock available today.
It IS inletted for the Holland recoil lug but it is also inletted to use the Holland Pillar bedding system and is ment to be pillar bedded and then glass bedded after the pillars are fitted properly.
Again great choice but unless your exprienced in pillar bedding and glass bedding, send her off for the best results possible.
