    Has any one tried to pillar bed a Lux? Should I just bed the whole thing to the barrel lug, or just contact points?

    I've never heard of a CZ rifle that didn't already shoot so good everyone was afraid to touch the stock with bedding compound! :what:

    Just plain bedded it, no pillars

    I want to use the gun to shoot silhouette matches this winter. It was shooting about .75 in at 50 yards with a few different types of ammo, but I put a Brooks trigger kit in, bedded it, and found a place locally that sells Wolf MT.
    Got a Brownells Acraglas Gel Kit and here's the rest of the story.
    Stripped the trigger group out and sanded the barrel channel with 120 grit over a socket. Sealed the barrel channel and any places that weren't getting bedded with polyurethane to seal it.
    Then I covered the edges if the stock with blue painters tape and trimmed it with an exacto knife. I put electrical tape around the barrel in front and behind the front sight, and in front of the action where it meets the barrel.
    I applied two coats of release compound to any area that would come in contact with the gel.
    I put the gel into the barrel lug, rear lug, and action / barrel junction areas with a cut off q-tip. I put the barrel and action in the stock, cleaned out the barrel lug hole, coated the front screw with a lot of release compound and tightened everything up.
    I proceeded to go through a whole lot of q-tips in the clean up process, but got it looking good, stripped the tape off and let it set up for 10 hours. Things were pretty stiff getting them out, but I went through and cleaned up any excess around the magazine and trigger channels with a small round file and put everything back together. It looks like a champ, feels good with the trigger kit and we'll have to see how it shoots next week when my new scope comes in. I'll post a range report in the Rifles forum when I am finished.
    Thanks for listening to the ramblings of a grammer flunkee.
