Re: Remington 700 Restock

As far as a bedding compound, which one is best Acraglass, Devcon, Marinetex, I've even heard guys using JB Weld. I have also been told that the material used for reinforcement is what is the most important. Any guidance on what will work best for the laminated stock?

Re: Remington 700 Restock

Devcon steel putty, I use it on all my bed jobs.
Here is a link to one of my bedding jobs, might help you out.
Work of Art is on it's way.
There was also some good info by a member named Nesikachad about bedding, I acquired a lot of good info from him.
If you have any questions just fire away.

almost solid resin that has wood in it. (Custom knife handles are stabilized with resin and last
under the worst conditions). A few of my custom knifes are 25 to 30 years old and have been
bloodied,wet, and generally misused but are still in perfect shape except for a few scrapes and
scratches.

They also dampen harmonics and heat and humidity have little effect on them.

There is nothing like fine wood stocks except the price (Very expensive) and laminates are
the next best thing in my opinion.

They also have the best balance of any stock.

Hence the reason I use wood laminates...they do everything a man could want EXCEPT they are typically heavier than H*** but since I dont arry my varminters around...it dont matter.

I bought mine from Remingtom direct and from Stockys

Re: Remington 700 Restock

Weight won't be an issue for me since I will be still hunting. I also would like to jewel the bolt, but I don't have a drill press and necessary equipment, or know anyone who does. What is the typical cost to have this done by a gun smith?
