Recoil Lug Alignment Tool


Apr 7, 2019
Just a tip.

If your replacing a barrel and would rather not buy an alignment tool to do it just once try this. Put release agent around your recoil lug, action and front action screw. Use Quick Steel epoxy putty and mold it around the recoil lug, screw, and bottom of your action. Let it set, remove the screw, and pop the hardened epoxy off the recoil lug. You now have a lug alignment tool molded specifically for your action.

It also helps if you have a bedded action and need the recoil lug to be positioned precisely as it was. It helps to keep you from having to bed the action again.
