Hi from Indiana again! Second post here. I mentioned in the new member forum that I had acquired an Alpine M1 and wished to bring it back to original specs. I have found an original stock and butt plate {less hand guard} along with all the other items that I needed.
I was wondering if bedding of the stock would be required to improve accuracy. Or should I just put it together and see how it shoots? Or would bedding even required at all?
Thanks for your help in advance!
Joe

Hey Joe, it's not really practical to bed a carbine stock like you would a hunting rifle. About all you can do is ensure the recoil plate is properly installed, you have a tight fit between the receiver and recoil plate and that you have a little "preload" of the barrel in the barrel band area. This link to the CMP web site describes what I mean about preload (see page 3 & 4).

You must be logged in to see this link.

If you wish, you can bed the recoil plate to the stock. This may help a little as long as the other factors are considered. Here are pictures of how I bedded the recoil plate on my "shooter" stock.

The two things are the recoil plate as Jack mentioned and a type 3 barrel band with the bayonet lug. Those are the only things that will work on a carbine. It was developed to be dependable and to be minute of bad guy out to three hundred yards. It was never a target system to start with just a USGI goof proof as possible rifle.

Thanks Guys! I am looking forward to the rebuild. Mid-September will be a likely starting point. (if hunting does not get in the way...) I am sure that I will have lots more questions as I get started. So Thanks in advance!
