buckslayer,
I've glass bedded bolt actions and Ruger #1's, but I have never bedded a break single shot. I can't imagine that it would do anything but help the gun shoot better, and it would weather-proof the forend. That should be an easy bedding job. If you do it let us know how it goes.
Best,
TnNuc

I tried that on an H&R 158 in .30-30 I had, but it didn't seem to make any difference. It still sprayed out a 6" pattern. I never could get that thing to settle down, though. Tried various sights, tried various loads, etc. I finally sold it. But the NEFs might be a different story. My .30-06 put them in 1.8" at 100 yards with a peep rear and blade front sights. Before my eyes got old on me...
