I recently did a lot of work to my rar 270. Did my own trigger job on it, spring , shims, light polish which it really didn’t need to achieve anything. And I put a bell and Carson sporter fiberglass stock on it . Personally I thought it to be the nicest hunting style stock available . I have many Boyd’s stock but really wanted the b&c as this is my primary hunting rifle. One thing I have noticed and there is a list of issues I’ll get to in future posts is recoil. In the original plastic stock the gun came in the gun was virtually recoilless. I’m serious , my M-77mkii in a laminate stock has measurably more recoil than my 270 and my dads old browning a bolt in a walnut stock has more recoil ..... that is no longer the case . Once swapping to the bell and Carson fiberglass stock my gun now has considerable recoil. The new stock is heavier , still a light stock but the pillars are part of a one piece aluminum shank that extends the length of the stock and its overmolded in fiberglass. I have played around with the torque specs , and even when shooting this gun from a bench with in a rest as you can see in my avatar is has considerable recoil. It’s not like terrible or unbearable , but first off the 270 isn’t a recoil monster , none I’ve ever shot have been, and now mine is more up there closer to 30-06 level IMO. I have pulled the action out of the stock and did a little light sanding on the pillars to ensure quality contact between the pillars and the action. It did have a little fiber glass residue on the front end of the v blocks but I’m talking extremely minimal. You think the slight increase in weight actually increased the recoil. The gun was light bad a feather in the original plastic stock , or do you think there is and actual problem ?
