    Question Winchester Glass Bedding

    Just took out my Winchester Safari N .416 Rem Mag. to have it glass bedded. When we opened it up, what a shocker, Winchester really butchered the stock.
    The fit was so sloppy that it is a miracle that the stock had not split during test firring.

    All of the reinforcement points were marginal the builder had removed way too much material, to cover up they had glued wood chips in the guard area to shim the trigger guard in place, used plastic shim's on several mount points to make it fit, and these were just a few of the issues.

    I did not purchase some low end gun but a $1,200.00 work of art that I planed to build up. This was one of their last production guns, and was purchased just about 30 days prior to the announcement. No wonder they gave up with this level of workmanship. On the other hand the action and barrel are fine, but the wood worker needs their hands slapped.
    Anyone else experience this?

    No experience but - for that high end rifle it is attrocious to find such abysmal building.

    Has to be a ''Friday evening'' build where the guy was wanting to get home quick! Makes you wonder tho with rifles how often short cuts are taken to cover up mistakes in woodworking and general assembly. Most would not be seen by the average guy who does not do a total strip down.

    The guy working on yours had to have been a ''that'll do'' worker.

    That's pretty much what I thought, it just irks me that a company with a reputation like theirs for a high quality firearm would let something like this pass muster for shipment, they must not have had any inspection on finished guns.
