Bad bedding porn

So we've all gotten used to seeing NesikaChad's wonderful bedding jobs. You start to wonder what kind of work is put out by other "gunsmiths" out there.

Today I received in a rifle with a Bell & Carlson stock. In talking with the previous owner it allegedly had been bedded by his local gunsmith, but it didn't seem to improve at all after the work was done. In fact, he brought it back to have him "add back" the pressure pad near the end of the stock to see if it would help; it did not. It was very good to start with, but didn't go from "very good" to "Great." So, he sold it.

So I pull the stock off the rifle and this is what I see:







No, I could not believe it either.
Click on the pics to get to larger photos - not that you want to see a bigger pic of anything this gruesome.

My questions are:

1. What is this stuff? It almost seems like Gorilla Glue.
2. How do I remove it? I've used a small straight screwdriver and can chip off some of it. It is not "completely" hard. However I'd love to know if there is something other than scraping or a Dremel that will clean it up.
3. I know that the Devcon 10110 is grayish in color. Is there a Devcon that is tan? Another one of my rifles with the same color stock has a tan bedding material that is really close in shade to the stock (see pic below) and I'd love to use that rather than gray, if possible. I "think" I saw a picture by NesikaChad on another forum that showed the tan color, but anyone is welcome to let me know.

Thanks for any insight you may have.

Tan bedding I'd like to copy:

Who ever did that must not have known that you want to make contact between the stock and action/barrel more consistent not less. I've only bedded one stock my self and I ended up with one small air bubble but I took my time and am pleased with what I was able to accomplish. If I had payed money for that to be done it would be back in my pocket or going to a hospitals coffers real quick.

Thankfully I didn't pay the smith, and I bought the rifle at a good price.
Now I'd like to fix it, and do it right.

Oh, and there is a bit of this shytte on the outside of the stock too. I removed some, but a couple of areas are so thin I'm afraid of hurting the tan paint.

Any idea what this stuff is, how to remove it, and what that nice tan stuff is on the other stock?

Re: Bad bedding porn

That's really gross.

If it was here, I'd stick it in the mill and cut the stuff out. If you don't have access to a mill, it's going to be a long night with a face mask and a dremel.

I''ve never seen Devcon 10110 in any color other than dark gray. There is an old saying - "A good horse is never a bad color." Might extend that thought to bedding material.
