New to the forum and looks like tons of great info...
Did a search of the forums and didn't find what I was looking for in regards to bedding an A-bolt. Found just about everything else.
I have a question for bedding the rear of the action, specifically around the tang area. There is a thin plate that goes between the stock and trigger assembly / rear tang. How is this area addressed for bedding?
It looks like the rear action bolt doesn't have much material towards the front of the rifle to make bigger for pillar bedding.
Was wondering if there were any pics or anything addressing this area. Looks like people have successfully bedded their A-bolts and have seen some pics, just not of this area... Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am in the process of stocking two A-Bolt rifles, and took a few quick pictures to show how I bed them.
One customer wanted a complete pillar bed, and the other wanted only the front lug area bedded. So, the corresponding pictures will give you an idea of what the rear pillar will look like if you choose to go that route. This particular stock is taking on numerous coats of tung oil, so I had to remove some tape from the rear pillar to take the picture. I counter-bored the pillar to accept the rear screw assembly and the thin metal tang plate that you speak of.
