Question for the group. I have a rifle that I recently bought a aftermarket wood stock for. The quality of the stock was as expected (mass produced) and I wanted to put some work into it to make it as good as it possibly could be. After having conducted some online investigation, I determined that this work (pillar install, bedding) would best be left to a gunsmith. I dropped off the gun at the shop several weeks ago and after about 3 weeks it was ready to be picked up. When I dropped it off, the shop made it clear that they were going to do all of the right things including ring install/alignment and scope install. This was all work that was right in their wheelhouse and they seemed happy enough to take it on. I picked it up today and was a bit surprised. I had expected full length action bed work from just forward of the lug to the tang, done in such a way that there was an obvious epoxy layer. What I got back was something else entirely. There was a gob of epoxy around the lug and no obvious work anywhere else, with the exception of the installed pillars. I also believed that their needed to be additional relief work done in/around the action area as the barrel was not centered in the channel. I have not yet shot the rifle so really as long as it shoots well, I have no complaints. That said, given the investment I made with the shop, I am extremely disappointed in their work (specifically care and finish). It appears as though there is no more than 20 minutes worth of work and a minimum of parts and materials. Truth be told, the aftermarket stock is very slim and there is a minimum of material that could have been removed from either side of the stock. That said, it the center of the channel, I would have expected to see more of an effort to establish a solid mating surface. There literally is none, not even at the lug. Admittedly, I'm a novice and am drawing my conclusion based on aesthetics and what information I've managed to pull off the interwebs. My plan is to go shoot the gun tomorrow and see how it goes. If it shoots better than the tupperware, I'll be happy enough. If it does not, I'll probably take it to another shop to complete the work that I originally asked for/thought should be done and to remove and reinstall the scope. (they didn't charge me for the install so I don't know if they overlooked it, if they forgot, etc.) This the right path? Would you do anything different?
