Re: TC Impact trigger, free floating, and bedding

In the second to last photo i filed down the guides for the ram rod as well. I will be seperating the forend from the barrel tomorrow. After that is done I will post pics of the pillars. Also I plan on starting the pillar bedding and reciever bedding this week and will get that posted when it is started.

Re: TC Impact trigger, free floating, and bedding

Well I finished the pillar bedding on the forearm this weekend. Thankfully it seperated LOL! I think it turned out pretty good, not exactly the most pretty job in the world I'm sure but it function very well. The pillars are perfectly molded to the pillar on the barrel. When the forearm is installed it sets perfectly in place with no barrel contact, other than the pillars. The only one that I worry about is the one in the rear which turned out slighty thin on the edges (see second photo).

Also I began prep for pillar bedding the reciever and bedding. See rest of photos!
Let me know what you guys think thus far! Good or bad, I'll take it!

Luckily the recoil lug is already bedding in with steel tubing so that sould be good! The only thing left is to have the pillar drilled then epoxy the pillar and bed the action.
