To glass bed or not?

Debating on whether or not to glass bed my Savage model 12, bull barrel, single shot, with synthetic stock.

Accuracy is good/ problems there. The recoil lug is only supported at the rear face of the lug. Synthetic stock is completely open in front of the lug (lug is just like a Rem 700).

    I am a great advocate of glas-bedding as it usually is a big help with the poorly fitted mass produced factory rifles.
    However since you say that accuracy is great already you can remember " if it aint broke dont fix it".
    glas -bedding shouldnt hurt it but why take the trouble if it shoots fine.

    When I bed rem type rifles I only allow the rear face of the recoil lug to contact the bedding , the bottom sides and front will have clearance.

    the lug should only be supported at the rear, all other sides need to be free.

    I would think your consistency will improve with a bedding job.
