For the inletting try Cisju tar-Router (il-Gharghur) and for the bedding try Windsor (they have a great selection)  Grin
Good luck  Grin

So you have a stock blank that needs adapting to your rifle? Is that so? If so, try stockmaker on here and also try Gejtu, last I spoke to him the subject came up and he said he did that sort of work no problem.

The bedding itself, you can do yourself and have the quality of work that you desire, it's no big deal as long as you understand what you want to get done and how.

You can use plenty of materials for the bedding. Fr'example, I used Gel Coat Filler which hardens up very nicely yet retains a minimum of flex so it won't crack. So to speak, it is related to "hard metal" but is far harder and stronger (hard to sand down!) - hard metal is no good, too soft.

Just watch out for your chosen release agent - test, test, and test!!! The curing creates heat so what looks like it may be ideal, may simply melt and dissolve into the bedding agent, leaving you with a very "bedded" action!!!  Shocked

You may want to do it in parts just to be safe, but this is slightly trickier. I had bedded my 10/22, added another retention screw at the back of the action (usually there is only one, at the front) and also pillar bedded the front so as to ensure free floating of the barrel (normally the barrel rests in the stock. That is just 5% of what I did to it anyway!

True Chris, as RB is saying why don't you do it yourself.
I am aware of no professionals in rifle bedding here so might as well do it yourself if there is no option.
Brownells offer various products and even video clips.

locally, the best you could rely on is yourself, I don't think anyone has real experience with professional bedding. closer to home, cicognani or armeria camuna are your best bets
