    Custom 10/22 bedding pillars, pics

    I have been working on a few custom 10/22 stocks,durring the process I thought it could be a accuracy enhancement to fabricate bedding pillars, which took me down a different road but the results have been worth it.

    It started out with removing the factory wood stocks brass take down screw cup, more of a washer than a pillar really, there is a fair amount of wood between the take down screw cup, screw, and receive lug, .615" to be exact. Here are a few pics of the new pillars next to the factory cup.



    Enlarging the factory hole to allow bedding of full length pillar



    Preparing for bedding, putty with a layer of e-tape on sides of lug



    stock after bedding pillar, 3.25" of barrel in front of lug supported, allowing action to "float"



    More to come.......

    Nice, wish these were around when I bedded my 10/22 in the factory McMillan HTG-style stock.

    are you going to bed the entire action or just around the front lug area ?

    Re: Custom 10/22 bedding pillars, pics

    I have tried free floating the rear action and bedding around the front lug and a few inches of the barrel which works great. When free floating the action you need to avoid heavy optics due to the fact the action no longer has a rear support, I used a Volquartsen barrel which puts the optics mount on the barrel and solves this issue.

    The pillar by itself is an improvement for accuracy by itself without bedding.

    When I built my GF's 10/22 I bedded the entire action as well as about an inch of the barrel... It shoots lights out...

    Re: Custom 10/22 bedding pillars, pics

    I use the Volquartsen bedding system

    and have had good results with it...

    Not the best rimfire groups in the world, but acceptable for a 10/22.

    The more I think about it though, I would really like to try a full bedding job of the entire action and first two inches of barrel.
    If nothing else, it should help with barrel droop and any other stress that is induced by the barrel.

    Chasing accuracy with a 10/22 is an expensive obsession that I thought I had beat until I came across this thread...
    Anyone have a good how to guide on bedding 10/22s?

    i used the Volquartsen bedding kit with my method as well, but did not use the pressure pad.

    Thanks for posting this. I got a wild hair the other day and pulled my 10/22 apart and started wondering about bedding it the more I looked at it.

    Check out Rimfire Tech for their bedding system. The adjustable &quot;v&quot; block with the stage 2 bedding system is a great setup. I have it on my 10/22 along with a bunch of other work. Besides the trigger work, it was the biggest improvement factor in my build-up. Accuracy improved immediately!

    Currently, they are $250 but you get a custom stock as well [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/grin.gif[/img]

    I am hoping to get a second batch soon, I currently have 50+ which will all be used on my stocks. I will offer a bedding kit soon for sale separately.

    Nice pillars. I might have to work up a 10-22 build.
