    bedding P14

    I have a couple of p14 projects that will need bedding done. In one case redone.
    In my research there is a one website that recommends using plugs, straws and guide screws with no heads to align the stock as you lower it into the bedding. Not a silly idea.
    That's good, but the p14s have an angled rear action screw so cant do that on the rear at least. Just have to be bloody careful doing it so I don't get any compound on the threads as that would be bad.
    Any tricks and traps for this sort of thing?
    Don't have any gear yet so just doing the homework for now. Found a supplier for west system in chch so will probably give that a shot.

    Make sure you use plenty of release agent on the screws and action area. If a screw is bound by bedding compound then hold a soldering bolt on the head until it is hot to touch and it should break free. This method will not damage the bedding.

    @gundoc yeah that was one thing I got out of the research.
    Release agent is you friend. Bigtime
    I've read a couple of opinions where they do the rear and front separately as in not at the same time.
    Not a fan.
    The second one I have to redo would almost work like that as it tips down at the front even though its been bedded. The rear screw is bending the action back down. It wouldn't need much material removed at the rear as its already higher and I wouldn't have to dig out the front.
    Still inclined to do it all at once though
