Re: bottom metal

It's good stuff. I used some on my m40a1 style rifle and I was very pleased with the outcome.

Matt is a great fellow. He has taken the middle man out of the equation now and it saves you when buying his products.

If you need a drop in floorplate bottom metal, look no further.

Re: bottom metal

I have had excellent experiences with Williams bottom metal. It drops in every time. Quality is top notch. The ONLY problem with Williams bottom metal is that it's so hard to get your hands on because EVERYBODY is backordered.

Is that a one piece? Will that work on a Win Mod 70, because mine is a 2 piece from the factory and i would prefer a one piece for bedding purposes.

Re: bottom metal

No, it is a two piece that I cut to fit the original bedding. I had a one piece at the time and decided not to use because of the amount of extra cutting that would be required to fit it.

I've been told that if left unsupervised the average Marine could destroy a Box Car with a rubber mallet in 7.5 seconds. Your rifle is proof that tender loving care isn’t taught at Quantico, Pendleton, Paris Island or any where else

</div></div>LOL!

Never had to ship my navel, but I guess it would be embarrassing to try. Good thing I never joined the naval air force, as forcing air through it sounds painful.

This thread kinda gives new meaning to the term 'bottom metal', doesn't it.

Re: bottom metal

Hey RADcustom, wondering if you would mind letting me know what size screw you used in front of the trigger guard... 6-32? Also, looks like you relieved the area in front of the push button latch? Nice work on the bottom metal btw...

Thanks,
hsld.

I had to cut the front part off of the trigger guard portion and drill a new hole that lined up with the insert that was in the stock. The hinged plate had to be shortened to adjust for the hole spacing and a relief notch for retention pin had to be cut.

Hope that helps
