I have an FN SPR A2 with a McMillan A4 stock. It has been bedded but this thing is such a heavy rifle I would like to have it pillar bedded then bed it with marine tex or whatever the smith uses. Who can do this work at a fair rate and not take more than a couple of months to do so?

Jeff at CDI could probably take care of it. He inletted my SPR for his bottom metal and is a good guy to deal with

I think he only charges like $60 bucks to do it and offers a fast turn around. That's the route I wold probably go if you are ording his DBM anyway.

Truth. Jeff is very reasonable and his quality is great.

I've used Jeff a couple of times and the quality is very good. Also consider that the shipping back to you is included in the $60 price.

I think the FN requires the rifle to be inletted as well as the stock. I am not sure if that is why the price Jeff quoted me was $125 or not or if he just upped his fee.

I am going to send it to short action customs to pillar and epoxy bed (using steel putty) the stock, have the CDI bottom metal installed, add a Badger ordnance bolt knob/handle, and possibly inlet the stock for a jewell trigger.

The action does have to be machined on the FN's

Do a little research and attempt it yourself. The inletting will be a little tougher but the end result will be well worth the effort.

I just bedded my rifle and I couldn't really be happier with the results. It was scary as hell but now that I've done it I wouldn't think twice about doing it again.

There are a lot of youtube videos on the subject. It's a great project.
Sorry 'bout your bad luck.

Nevermind- disregard my post above if this is the case.

Send it off to a smith

Pretty sure the $60 charge is just to inlet for his bottom metal, I dont think he is installing pillars and then bedding actions. That would be a killer deal when most smiths charge like $200 just to bed and not inlet.

$60 bucks is just for the inlet. I have had 2 done by him. Jeff is a mold maker by trade and also does the gun stuff. His service is awesome and turn around time is quick, less than 1 week. I have a third piece of BM waiting for another gun to come along.
