    Rifle/ stock bedding??

    What is the easiest and best bedding material to use- for example putting a rifle in a bullpup stock, but the rifle is smaller than the firearm intended for the bullpup stock? Fitting my M50 in a Kushnapup Saiga stock, looks like it may work but there are some gaps and I need it stable so itís not moving around inside the stock.

    Have you considered AcraGlas? If you use any kind of epoxy based compounds, you'll need to rub petroleum jelly on the metal to keep it from sticking.
    If you have access to a 3D printer, you may be able to print some blocks to hold it.

    AcraGlas has always been my go to bedding compound.
    I don't know how well it will hold up to the heat sustained FA fire, I've never had the occasion or opportunity to use it that way.

    Btw, AcraGlas is clear; you dye it (brown or black). Unless you really want it to be the same color as your stock, use the contrasting color; any gaps or inconsistencies are much easier to spot, and if it's done on places that are not visible when the gun is assembled, no one will notice it.

    I've never tried it, never even heard of it, but I have been out of the game for a while. I'll have to check it out.

    Ok, I looked up Marine Tex on the internet, one of its qualities is "permanent flexibility". This may be desirable in some applications, but one of the defining qualities of AcraGlas is that it dries hard, which is why it is used in bedding actions.

    I’m shooting metal trash cans with it- not competition targets or deer!

    I understand. Different products for different applications.
