What is the typical cost of pillar bedding and glass bedding?
Complete pillar bedding from an experienced gunsmith or stock builder should run from $150.00 to $250.00.
That's just the pillar bedding? Or both?
I don't think anyone would JUST do the pillars without bedding as well. Glass bedding without pillars is ok but pillars without bedding would not be ok. So, not to speak for Joel, but I think that would be pillars with bedding included.
guy here runs 100 plus
The best thing to do is both . The cost is 100 to 125 depending on who you take it to. you should not let anyone charge you more than that. You also should specify devcon for bedding material as it works the best of all that I have tried.
Who is the guy around here that does it? Could you point me in the right direction?
I was referring to complete pillar bedding, pillars and action bedding.
You generally get what you pay for.
Most gunsmiths or stock builders use what they feel is the best product for bedding, you should allow the person you trust to do the work pick the material he recommends.
Can someone point me to who on this forum does that kind of work? Any chance someone is from Michigan?
So was I Here is how I get the cost. Pillars, bedding epoxy, and misc. supplies = $50.00. Actual working time 2 hrs. Shop rate $35.00/hr = $70.00. Total cost
$120.00. I suppose if someone charges more per hour than I do it will cost more but where I live this an honest rate to charge.
I would do it for you but I am in AZ. There is probably somene on here from your state that does it but you have to hope they see this post. Good luck.
Thanks PR. I appreciate it.
