If I was going to bed it with the factory lug as is, I'd release agent the action as usual, and release agent the lug(leave it where/how it is now), and full bed the action as usual.
I'm currently building 3 customs on Tikka actions. One has a custom built recoil lug TIG welded into the slot in the action, and bedded as usual into a McMillan stock. The other two are having the face of the action squared off, and a custom 700 style lug built to go between the action and the barrel.
Lots of ways to skin a cat. 😉 Are you by any chance, looking for another Factory Laminated stock?
Good luck, and post pics when you're done.
