Default Need pillar bedding/freel float new Boyds stock

I'm in South Houston and am wondering if any of my TBH brothers would be willing to walk me through the process of pillar bedding and free floating my new Boyd's Prairie Hunter stock? I would be willing to pay for your troubles with money, adult beverages or both. If there is a gunsmith in the area, I'm open to that as well. Just want it done right.

Thanks,

Jayson

Not trying to hijack your thread, but how does yours fit? I got two stocks from them for my Model 70 and itís all jacked up. Iíd have to modify the stock and my rifle for it to work correctly. So far their customer service department hasnít been very helpful.

I was going to order a Boydís stock, but had a gunsmith tell me to stay away from them and check out Stockyís Stocks instead. I ordered one from them and canít wait to put it together.

I ordered one before and sent it back. Didn't fit my Remington 721 without some modification which I was not in the mood to do as I was leaving for an aoudad hunt. This one fits like a glove without alteration and I could (and may) just open up the barrel channel to free float it. I just thought I would give pillar bedding a try.

I've done several guns using that method and it works great. I used JB Weld and shoe wax.

I have never done bedding before and I just finished skin bedding a Remington 700 PSS just watching videos and reading up on how to do it take your time but don't waste money on release agent I use neutral shoe polish it's cheap and it works **** good make sure you get everything good and clean and make sure you feel all voids with modelers clay take your time and you can do it mine came out perfect saved a lot of dollars doing it myself

I read a lot of articles online and watched a bunch of videos and took a little bit of everybody's and put it together to do my rifle and it came out great don't be scared to do it just take your time a Dremel tool will help just be very careful when you're relieving some spots on your stock with the Dremel tool if you need to it can get away from you so be very gentle with it.

I used Devcon but I know a lot of people have used J-B Weld and the gorilla epoxy and have had good luck with it.

I'm in Houston and wouldn't mind walking you through it. But I'll be out of town until early Nov.
