glass bedding high wall

Post by kokomokid » Sat Dec 07, 2013 8:48 am

I am thinking about glass bedding or adding a through stock bolt to my Winchester high wall. Any thoughts or suggestions? LB

Personally, I would not add a through bolt to a highwall. I have none in mine and I don't see the need for one.

Glass bedding can't hurt and it is easy to do. I bed every rifle sooner or later.

Thanks Brent, Are you bedding both tangs at the same time or making it a two step job? LB

I usually bed in a 2-step process (or even 3 or more if necessary). I just did a Marlin in one step, but it's trigger bar drops in from below instead of sliding in like the 1885's

I put a through bolt in my Highwall and have to agree with Daniels that it is not necessary. I also agree that glass bedding is always a good thing if done well.
The next project was a Low wall for a match a 22. It was bedded and not through bolted. The long upper and lower tangs being made of very thick steel give all the stock support necessary. Mike D.
