Thread: Cardboard recoil lug

  1. #1

    Cardboard recoil lug

    A friends just bought his new to him rifle up for me to have a look at (I'm more a shotgun stocker than rifles but he always asks), he's not shot it yet the prove will be there but!

    It's got 6-7 small bits of cardboard under the recoil lug, I've never done this or heard of it is it common or has someone messed it about if so, can I fix it I was thinking glass bedding the recoil lug at least.

    Are you sure he hasn't thrown the rifle away and is shooting the box?

    I'm fairly sure it's a rifle bit of tube and wood.

    Has the card been put in to 'jack up' the front of the action so as to free float the barrel?

    No barrels not free floated can get a thin bit of paper down the channel so will almost certainly be removing some wood to float the barrel.

    We're discussing pillar and glass bedding he's keen I do it now I want to shoot it first.

    only needs a tenner slid up and down for freefloat ,no need to take a lot off just a light sanding should do it,

    Nothing getting through I prefer a little more more than a tenner personally doesn't look as smart but I find it works best

    that is a cheap way of trying to make it free floated/or for testing,

    if you intend to free float it i go for a 3/4 mm gap,

    Bob yes I'm of the same school about 3mm clearance on the barrel do you think he should test fire it with the card in or out???
