Re: Thoughts on aftermarket stocks?

I am ordering my third tomorrow. They are running 10 off until the 6th for the holiday. Are they as easy as an aluminum block one. No, but I have them glass bedded. I like them especially the thole models

Re: Thoughts on aftermarket stocks?

Allot of your high end stocks have an aluminum block molded into the stock for perfect mating of the stock to the receiver. This does help accuracy. Yes on some guns glass bedding the stock does help improve accuracy. Not a cure all and not every gun needs it, but it can turn a good gun into a great gun

Re: Thoughts on aftermarket stocks?

If your out to seek the most out of your equiptment everything in a bolt action should be glass bedded. You are getting 100% fit and stress relieving in this application. I try to squeeze everything possible out of my rifles and is a must to me. Its tweeking the fine lines that gives the ultimate accuracy possible. I have seen some people just change stocks for various reasons and no bedding, thats there choice and lots of times work out.

Unless of course your rifle shoots best free floated. Then glass bedding doesn't help.

Somewhat true, however glass bedding the action would almost certainly help in that case.
