Re: Replacing barrel on a Ruger 10/22. Questions regarding bedding etc.
I wouldn't free float a 10/22. The standard barrel is just press fit and pinned. (as you know hence the barrel replacement) If you free float it all of the stress is on the alloy receiver which will give way over time. The 10/22 relies on the front band and stock to handle such stress so if your thinking bedding, full length bed it. Don't worry about the pillars, its overkill for a gun with little recoil and your then attaching those pillars to a plastic trigger guard (newer models) which will offer little support. Follow JLA's instructions for bedding in the other thread that he started. Its much the same. I would get a glass bedding kit though, nothing against JB weld, its similar in rigidity but you'll need much more with a full length bed, the brownells single gun kits is plenty.
Only cowards shoot with their eyes closed....
