Re: I just glass beded the 54 flinter
Help me understand this. You bedded the tang and the lock so they are tight? I understand the part about the lock needing to be a tight fit but I thought that the tang needed to have some play at the end of its inlet channel ( about 1/16 inch) and it is the the end of the breach plug that needs to be a tight fit against the stock to prevent splitting? I am about to take on a kit build and I would like to make sure I have this right.
Good night Chesty, wherever you are......
