    Default bedding flat bottom mauser actions

    I was curious to get your opinions and tips on glass bedding the recoil lug of a mauser. The screw holes in the lug makes the bedding a bit different. Do u guys tape the lug and then drill out the bedding in the stock ?
    Any photos would be great too.

    I use the guide screws from www.ch4d.com. With these installed, I just drop the action into the stock. When the bedding has begun to set up and is slightly hard, remove the guide screws and allow the bedding to fully harden. Pull the action out and clean everything up. Very simple.
    These guide screws are about 4" long, and smooth, so they work well.
