    Niiiiiice! I second the notion to make this a sticky! My 917v is free-floated from the factory -I wanted to do it myself. Where the barrel meets the receiver, there is still some wood that touches the barrel, but it isn't a defect. Do you think I should sand that area down? Also, if I pillar-bed (or bed, period) my 917v, would it be beneficial? Thanks.

    A little self-serving, but I Stickied this as it's one of the best DIY bedding instruction sets I've found and didn't want to spend twenty minutes searching next time

    Thanks javentre, I'll add another that was posted here so folks have multiple resources:

    http://www.thefirearmsforum.com/showthread.php?t=40782

    This is another good one from a well-known builder.

    I like the RD Precision tutorial, the only thing I'm not a fan of is installing the pillars before the rest of the bedding, as you end up with full contact on only one of the pillars. I like the idea of doing it all in one step so that both pillars have good contact with the action. Either way, thanks for the link!

    LongRifles, those are some very, very, impressive bedding jobs. Dang, I'd pay a premium for that kind of work.
