    I found a couple of pictures from the 51K thread here.It mentions that the longer bolt carrier is for the shorter gun.You can also see that the slot for the cocking tube is extended into the reciever area.

    Ya if you could get a already cut 33 barrel for cheap that would be a great way to save a little $$

    How did that apex kit look?

    Kit looked good, barrel was completely removed and any part with a serial number actually matched. The cocking tube and other parts were once painted black but now the paint was coming off.


    I'll try to get pics up tonight. I have limited internet from were I'm at for the holidays.

    All in all the kit was in good condition and nice.

    Does anyone have a barrel stub from a cut kit they want to part with?

    I got my kit from apex and my flat is on the way.I also found a trunion with the stub still in it to simplify things.Does anyone know of a thread somewhere on the correct way to shorten a cocking tube,especialy for the very short 'K' models.I also need to find out how to use the paddle mag release with the semi shelf that I will have to weld into the reciever.I can't seem to find anything on either.One more problem that I will need to address is the correct locking piece.I have been told that they depend on barrel length as well as caliber.This seems to be very doable but there is a lack of information on them for some reason.

    To install the paddle mag release, you have to drill a blind undersized hole in the shelf. Install the lower housing and centerpunch the exact center of the forward mounting hole. Drill a 1/8" hole through the shelf, stopping before it goes all the way through. Make a bushing to sleeve the paddle mag release so the 1/8" pin will fit properly, many people use a MIG welder tip. Install the paddle with a 1/8" pin driven slightly below flush, then weld over the end making it a permanent installation.

    Depending on the shelf used, you may have to machine a slot in it to clear the paddle release. Do not put any holes in the receiver until after the shelf is welded on.

    Thanks Kernel,I can sort of picture what your talking about but I'll have to wait for the shelf and the flat to see exactly.I'm not sure if I'm going to put a paddle on it but I know if I don't the first person who sees it will ask me why I didn't.You know how that goes,if I tell them it's a pain they say it's easy even if they never did it before.

    My usual response is "where's yours".
