The rail needs to be bedded onto the top of the receiver. The reason for that is the same reason that a receiver needs to be bedded into the stock, even if using a receiver bedding block. The differences in tolerances between the receiver body and the bedding block, and the receiver body and the rail dictate that it must be done to ensure that the action remain in a "relaxed" or unstressed state. The only stress present should be the stress imparted by the compression the firing pin spring, and the relationship between the cocking piece and the trigger sear while the weapon is in battery.
