    Bedding a JW 103

    Has anyone tried this. I'm thinking of bedding mine as a practice before have doing another rifle.
    Is it worth the hassle or would I be better just getting a professional to bed the flasher rifle?

    Yep, I've done it to 2 of them now. One in the original wood stock, and the other (a far more extreme task) was fitting the norinco action into a mossberg synthetic stock. Both improved accuracy by a lot.

    Easy to do?

    Piece of piss, and a good practice for other rifles.

    Take everything off the receiver, smooth out anything that isn't smooth (some norinco machining is a bit rough and can create a mechanical lock...). Make sure that all the gaps are filled with modelling clay or plasticene. I use a product called LPS3 as the release agent as I'm inherently lazy and can't be arsed taking 2 years to manually apply the release coating (lps 3 is a non-hydrocarbon and non-silicon preservative wax that sprays on as a liquid and then dries to a thin waxy layer).

    I use Devcon steel reinforced epoxy as the bedding compound, good stuff and haven't had a failure yet.

    Ditto. Did my bushranger last year. When I first got the rifle I could not hit an A4 sheet of paper at 100m. Bedded the action with Devcon, floated the barrel, polished the bolt to smooth things out a tad, fitted new scope mounts and accuracy has improved to acceptable standard. Be aware that the wooden stock inletting appears to have been done by a Chinese rotary hoe; some bits were hopelessly finished.

    Mauser308 has pretty much said everything I was going to say, and Ingrid 51 has covered the rest.

    This one shoots alright, allowing for the thin barrel. I mainly want the practice for doing a 30 06 project that came up.
    MIain thing that bugs me is the piss weak extractor.
    I intend giving the JW to my stepson of he decides to get a license. But if it works out he may have to buy his own.
