Re: HS Precision Bedding Question

to elaborate:

I personally don't care for them because the way I bed a rifle stocks does not work well with an H/S stock. I know there are rifles out there ( a lot of them for that matter) that shoot well with them. It comes down to overall fit and finish.

This is one of those things where a guy decides early on whether he'll be happy with a Timex watch or a Rolex. Both get the job done, but some will only allow the piece made in Switzerland to touch their wrist.

I charge a premium rate for what I do and I feel that a clean cosmetic appearance is just as important as the performance potential that a proper bedding job offers. The customers that choose to do business with me are of the same mindset. I'm not going to say my bedding jobs are "X" times better than the other guys because they aren't when viewed strictly from the performance perspective. Enough people have commented on them though for me to say that they do hold a unique appearance/finish when completed. That my friends is the basis of why I do them the way I do. It's a distinguishing feature and it says a lot to me when I peel an action from the stock at a range or show and a crowd gathers to inspect.

I cannot in good conscience send a finished piece out the door if I feel it's not the best effort on my part. With an H/S stock the design just does not lend itself well to how I do things. This is why I elect not to use them.

Decide for yourself:

Re: HS Precision Bedding Question

Thanks for the help. I dont know what im going to do? lol The only thing is noone will ever see the bedding job unless I take the gun apart, not that I dont agree with you but as long as it shoots good or at least a little better than the way it is now.
