      To make sure the mag will insert and eject properly after the bedding?

    Nice to see that TFB is jumping on the short, minimum effort clickbait video with awful royalty-free music type of content that has infected all internet news and journalism like measles at a Bay Area preschool. Good job.

    Hmm,.. partial free float? Just use a washer and epoxy bed the action! Les than $10

    Hmm,…partial free float? Just use a washer and epoxy bed the action. Less than $10!

    TFB brought to you by Brownells. Seriously have they bought this site or something.

    Please to explain: How is bedding different from free float? This seems like a semi free float.

    • Flounder

      Bedding is the main competitor to free floating. It used to be much more popular and when done very well they are equal.

      The idea behind bedding is that you use a material that won’t be affected much to put pressure on the barrel in a very specific way. That way, as you shoot and the barrel heats up your shots don’t move, or move in a very small and specific way. At least that is my understanding of it. I don’t have any bedded rifles because free float is cheaper for an equal quality job and hilariously easier to do. Most manufacturers have moved to free float on their production guns. Bedding is still somewhat popular on custom guns. and idk why.

      One of the problems with bedding is that you have to do a very good job in order to make it work. It also usually has to be done by a professional. idk what is going on with that washer, because Patrick drills a hole first? If he had just put it in there it would have floated the action to a small degree. As in it would have lifted the action just enough to reduce the contact the action had with the stock. Although it might be acting as a shim in order to lift up the barrel in order to put that black thing under it.

      Hope this helps. Talk to an old gunsmith or gun guy if you want more info on bedding. Or some women if you decide that bedding isn’t just for guns.

        Thanks dude!

      • iksnilol

        Can’t you bed the action and float the barrel?

      • nonobaddog

        You are talking about bedding the barrel. The article is talking about bedding the action.

  • Kenneth Wilkinson

    Thanks for the presentation. I liked it. I don’t have a 10/22 or won’t buy one, but found it interesting just the same

  • Nashvone

    $24.99 for a washer and a bit of adhesive rubber? What a bargain! I’ll take two!

    • Christian Hedegaard-Schou

      It’s more like $23.99 for a special bit so you can install $1 worth of washer and rubber.

  • Dan

    Yeah that is just ridiculous. Buy this special bit and install a rubber pad. Or…or don’t be stupid you probably have everything you need at home. Also it’s a damn .22 this is probably only going to make you think your bullseye is more bullseye than prior to putting in a washer.
