    Bisonite was the preferred material for service rifles ( garand and M1a) in my high power days. was very good with steel filler. was very hard and very low shrinkage. Held up well to the limited bedding area of these rifles. It was a little...

    Sew a button on each side of a ball cap and hook on them. Ive seen ladies use barrets in their hair to hold them on also. Another would be a rubber band between the loops and wrap around back of head.

    I have used the tormex for lathe chisels and planer blades. it does a wonder full job on them I also really like the strop wheel compound. The low rpm grinders also allow for a bigger selection of wheels and types of wheels

    How many rounds does the rifle have thru it. In time it may smooth out some from use. Keep it well oiled or a light grease and see if that helps.Open and close it 10-15 times a night for a couple weeks and see what that does to help smooth it up....
