Don't bed like this.

I had this rifle come in today and thought I had to share how not to bed your rifle. The customer didn't bed this rifle as he just bought it. The duct tape is holding the single shot follower in place. Maybe MacGyver bedded it?

Don't you think your being a little to critical?

I have seen a few bedding jobs like this Kevin. But the duct tape is a new twist.

The only thing missing was the Locktite.

That's a good question, I have it in mind to get real drunk and give this a try see how bad I can do with a junk stock.

Re: Don't bed like this.

I think it is most likely a classic case of underestimating how hard it is and just diving in with no research done or help solicited .
It's not brain surgery but it does need to be done a certain way for certain types of actions , also with some planning and care .
Just asking an old hand to help you the first time can pay big dividends in getting a reasonable job the first time and this clues you up to all the little techniques that make it come out right .
Actually this kind of thing upsets me a bit to see that someone has tried their best but screwed up their gun . It's unfortunate that it appears that they did not have someone to help them.
