    The step rails look awesome and straight when you have them in your hand,
    Thanks for the update & prints of the tool.

    Your idea seems to be a simple way to add authenticity to a home-built.

    you could probably make some money selling those flats . The step looks nice and consistent.

    I think the biggest problem would come from kites flying off the roof and down the mountain!!

    I've had two peacocks show up and settle in. They fly like gooney birds. Maybe they could use some flying lessions?

    twistedneck - My apologies for ripping of your thread.

    I think your bolt powered stepper is brilliant. My thought is that a number of the failure to feed problems folks have with flats arises from the carrier being too high.

    The use of your gadget would save lots of headaches.

    Can you explain that thought more slowly for the n00b guy?

    Ok -- A failure to feed can result from several different defects however the most common is that the bolt rides over the round instead of stripping it from the mag.

    What the step does is bring the carrier (and bolt) lower, in the case of twisted's design by 25 thousands, greatly increasing the probability of the bolt contacting the head of the round.

    Rumor has it that the original wall, or upper rail, thickness was greater and the step allows standardization of internal components with various receiver designs.
