Bedding RSI Pillar Posts

Postby DevilDog » Mon Sep 19, 2011 5:25 pm

I did my posts, and thought I would upload some photos. I only bedded the posts, the rest of the action will be done when it returns from Teludyne.

It really felt good to set in the posts, as the holes I drilled for them left a bit of slop. The front lug was only contacting the recoil bolt, with plenty of space due to the lug shape and the fact that this stock did not come with the rifle.

I used this product ($25 at Sportsman's Warehouse) It comes with great instructions and everything you need, besides maybe some rubber gloves and q-tips for clean-up:

Here is the Sloppy start:

I did it in 3 stages, first just enough to set the rear post, covering the trigger actuator with clay to keep out the resin, yet hold the post in proper orientation:
Image
Second fill in around rear post and receiver tang with the Timney trigger removed (If applicable):
Image

The rear looked great afterwards:
Image

I dabbed some around the bottom of the rear post while setting the front:
Image

and the front needed a bit more fill in than the rear:
Image

But now it's snug as a bug:

Did they supply some sort of release agent so that the action doesn't get glued into the stock?

Thanks Great Pics BTW

YES! That was my biggest fear, which is why I did just little bits in 3 stages. Especially with the front lug, which was pretty much surrounded with epoxy.

But I applied the supplied release agent (2 coats even though it probably didn't need it) and everything came apart easily!

They give you dye (just a little dab is good), stir stick and 3 cups for mixing, daubers for the release agent, modelling clay for gap protection, even some micro beads to stiffen the mix if you need.

Great pics. Will probably do the same to mine. Question, how did you attach the hand grip?

Looks Good! I need to get some pics of my project on here. I have the pillars but haven't bedded them yet.

Thanks!

I used a Mortise and Tenon joint which was epoxied together. BTW the Tenon in this photo is rotated 90 degrees to show the mortise in the stock. The tenon was actually almost the same length as the mortise (it's grain would be perpendicular to the stock for shear strength parallel to the stock)
