Re: EGW mount shows gap after installation
I use the EGW bases, mostly because of economics but I do just what Broz suggested. I goop them up and use shoe polish on the action, lube up the screws and snug them up to 10 in-lbs and clean all the ooze of and when dry I make sure the screws aren't stuck then I torque them down to spec.
I was shocked at how much variance there is in the outside of an action, after putting a couple in a lathe and checking them out it is no wonder bases won't stay tight without bedding.
