Similar to bedding the gas block, I have not modded any of my minis in a while and got to thinking about a way to mess with the gas block and try making a piece of lead into a gasket to work like a shim for bedding. I found some fishing bullet shape slip sinkers and smashed with a hammer to desired shape. I knew I needed it to be thin enough to get the stock on but thick enough to make a difference. I got it smashed and set into place then put together, I could feel the stock was tighter and tapped the gas block lightly to seat the lead. I got out for a little bit yesterday and fired a few shots. My poi had changed, the gun was shooting high about 6 inches, I was shooting from a clean bore. I was using a stock 5 rd mag and will try 20 rd mag this weekend. I shot 4 groups and could see right away the lead and stock were still settling in to get mated together. No pictures at this time, will get some this weekend. Group 1 was high 6" and 1 shot flier low and left 4" away from rest (bedded action) and the other 4 shots 3" group. Group 2 was done after scope adjust, 1 shot was low and left again but only 2" away from the other 4 shots the were centering left about 2". Group 3 was better with 1 shot only 1" low and slightly left of the other shots, I did notice 3 shot group almost touching and 1 and 5 shots were about 1" away from the 3 shots. The group is about 3" with all 5 shots, getting tighter with each group. Group 4 was a pleasant surprise, all 5 shots grouped 1" high like I wanted and a nice 1 1/2" pattern. I will have to try some more to make sure it was not a fluke and everything is settled in. One of the reasons for choosing lead, it's easy to work with and will dampen unwanted harmonics.
