    Bedding Pillars for Boyd's?

    Has anyone here done a pillar bedding job on their XS7 with the Boyd's
    Classic gunstock?

    Would like to know what pillars are needed and where to get them.
    Thanks.
    Things were easier way back then.

    Assuming that you're talking about one of their laminated stocks, do you think it necessary or is it just something you want to do? Those stocks are so solid I'd think it a waste of time, but to each his own... Might be a good idea on their walnut stock though.

    I'm not going to bash Boyd's, but there are a couple problems
    with this one. As far as I'm concerned, they are the best company
    out there dealing with laminates, especially for the price. I already
    have a couple and am about ready to get two more. However,
    this one is in need of pillar bedding.

    Howdy;
    I guess I've been lucky, but then I only have two of them. If it needs it, it needs it. It might also be that my standards are a lot lower than yours, accuracy wise. Any more, I'm quite happy with groups of an inch, maybe even an inch and a half, depending on what I'll be using the rifle for. Will occasionally do better, which makes my day. Used to think I "needed" the tiny groups, but am no longer capable of any better, so why waste components? Best of luck in your quest!

    Bedding pilars may be considered by some to a bit of over kill,but if it gives you a little more confidence in you weapon go for it. I have been waiting for an opening in Dagerous Dans work schedule to have my Boyd laminate stock both pillar bedded and the the reciever glass bedded since June. He is booked solid for these services. Nuff said.

    As far as "boyd's slipping". Remember that Rutland is the company that makes 98%-ish of ALL laminates out there... Boyds is just the largest distributor of their products.
    I'm a firm believer in the theory that "If it bleeds, I can kill it"

    IMO Boyd's did a great job with the finishing of their stock. When I ordered mine I had glass bedding and pillars in mind but after receiving it and seeing how well and how solidly my action fit in their stock I did not feel the need to do all that, especially after a trip to the range. After all I am a hunter not a competition shooter, if I was I would have a full custom rifle. With that said when it comes to hitting 6 inch circles at 200 plus yards I feel just fine with my Boyd's stock the way it sits even beyond that range. Just my .02,

    I have now put a replacement alloy trigger guard on my XL7 and all is good but the front action screw has pulled up into the nylon insert at the underside of my Boyds stock so that if it is done up beyond 20 inch pounds the bolt wont close. I will pillar bed that one with a bit of aluminium tube and some epoxy and I am sure all will be fine. Can't see a reason to pillar the rear screw though and there is not much wood there to work with anyway.
