    Devcon steel putty or Marine Tex, or any two part epoxy will do. The first two are well know trade names so come at a price.

    Sticky horrible stuff to work with though

    i prefer probed 2000, available in 4oz or 8oz brown or black, usually stocked by norman clark.

    for small bedding jobs like just doing the recoil lug and the first parallel section of the barrel, standard JB Weld does equally well, but I suppose is not so 'professional'

    Devcon, I tried most other things, but won't use anything else.

    Simply, it works, its easy to clean, it cures without shrinkage and it can be machined easily.

    Devcon is has been designed with a standard good enough for the aircraft industry...Worth every penny.
