Glass bed on Rem 700

Recommended Posts

Anyone tackled this job on a Rem 700? I have a couple questions. The first being whether to leave the factory barrel/stock contact or remove the 'bump' on the stock and free float. Second can I just bed the tang and recoil lug? And on the recoil lug should I bed the whole thing or just the back side? Finally, surface prep - some rough sandpaper or dremmel tool roughing or what? Oh yeah, its a mountain rifle thus the smaller, shorter 22" barrel(might be the deciding factor on the stock/barrel question). Thanks, later.

My brother sanded the bump off to free float his BDL. It was a simple process and it worked great. The only bad thing about it, is that now his barrel is no longer perfectly centered in the stock.

Good Luck!

I had to refresh this post before it fades away forever....no gun nuts out there? Rost, did your brother glass bed or just free float that barrel? Thanks, later.

She has many a kill under her belt. I bought that gun new about 15 years ago...its shoots just fine but the stock is so beat up from the 'blackberry plantation' we hunt. I thought it would be a good opportunity to experiment - if I botch it I have a good excuse to get a new stock! Just can't leave good enough alone ya know eh?
