First Attempt at stock bedding gone right.

After a couple of evenings or masking off the stock, and applying release agent, finally mustered the courage to lay in the DevCon, and all went pretty well. I got a couple of small air bubbles, but none that will make any effective difference. I would only do a couple of things different next time, like applying release agent to the inside of the mag well to save some clean up time, but all in all, happy with the first attempt. I wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be.

    That looks much better than my first attempt.

    Thanks for the replies, guys. I used the method (can't find the link now) where I wrapped tape around the barrel near the action and at the end of the stock forearm to support the action at the right height.
