    rear tang screw stoping bolt from moveing freely

    just got my jw103 back from the gunsmith who installed my suppressor
    when I got it home and put the bolt in, it now catches on the rear tag screw
    don't think its really the smiths fault just shit wood compacting a little if I back the screw off 3/4-1 turn the issue goes away

    what would be the best way to fix it pillar bedding I guess? any other ideas

    Pillar bedding would be the best way. If you shorten the screw it will continue to further crush the wood and the angles between the front ad back screws (as well as stock tension) will affect accuracy and stability. Its easy enough to drill the holes out to the right size, epoxy in some pillars and tighten them up. They are only smaller calibres and light recoil so you wont need bedding compound. Araldite etc should suffice. The wood they use on these is usually pretty soft so they will normally benefit from bedding, be it pillar or action. Its something you can do yourself and well worth the effort plus if you do it yourself, cost is minimal.

    Could you use araldite to bed part of the action? My 103 runs out of line with the stock after 3 or 4 shots. I should bed it at some stage but too lazy.

    Bed the thing. You don't really need to pillar bed, just epoxy bed top and bottom around the tang and barrel shank/knox. But it's only a small step more to pillar bed if you go that far...

    Don't forget to only tighten the screws no more than 65nm
