I just received a beautiful walnut monte carlo style stock for my old Russian MN. Yeah, I know some of you take issue with "bubba guns", (like I take issue with those who make pickups into cars), but still, I'm enjoying this project. The question is:
Is it better to remove wood to free-float the barrel, or is it better to bed the barrel to raise it away from the wood? Never done this before. Would like your opinions and why you have them regarding this subject.
