I need to bed a Tikka M690 action and I'm struggling to get my head around it.
The recoil lug is not integral to the action, it is a seperate aluminium part (see attached photos). The lug is a sloppy fit on the action so if I just bed as normal with lug and action covered in wax I'm still going to end up with possible movement between stock and action even though the recoil lug is a perfect fit.
The options as I see them are:
1: Bed normally and live with poor fit between lug and action
2: Epoxy lug to action first, then bed.
3: Epoxy lug permanently into stock then bed action as normal.
4: Remanufacture lug in steel, weld to action, then bed.
I'm favouring options 2 or 4 at the moment but would appreciate your input.
