Picking up my Scout right now. The receiver can be moved left and right a hair in the stock by hand.
I've got a Sadlack scope mount on the way, new scope already purchased and a buttload of other parts ready to go.

Should I go all in and use the acraglass kit I have sitting at home or just shim the stock?

I use Devcon steel epoxy or MarineTex to bed M1/M1-A's. Brownell's sells M1-A bedding kits that set the proper trigger group tension while the epoxy sets up.

I just decided to just roll with it and glass bed it.

I bed the receiver legs, the very rear end of the receiver on the top of the stock, and three contact points of the trigger group where they connect with the bottom of the stock.

rounded out the front stock ferrule / nose cap, and put a folded up piece of tinfoil under the op-rod guide piece as a fulcrum to put some downward tension on the front of the stock.

Its not a hardcore professional job for 1000 yard competitions- but I KNOW I would have been pissed if I didnt do this. its the same way I did my fulton M1a / w fiberglass stock about 6 years ago, my first bedding job ever being coached by online forums that solved my flyers I was getting, when I realized I could use my thumbs to wiggle the action side to side in the stock of the fulton rifle, just like I can with this brand new scout.

Off to bed. started work 18 hours ago, and just finished this rifle 20 minutes ago. Hopefully tomorrow I can get it apart

Let it set up the longer the better. 2 or 3 days is what I wait. I usually place a lamp close to the receiver to give it a very mild warming effect.

It fit tight as hell in my USGI stock and sloppy in the factory black synthetic.
Sadlack scope mount.
Leupold VXR 4-12x40 scope
Procomp muzzle brake
NM gas piston and spring guide rod

First range trip is tomorrow depending on if I'm snow plowing or not.

Very nice

Springfield used repainted USGI stocks at one time but some of their later black synthetics were pitiful...
