    I spaced the barrel by allowing the bolt to contact the upper receiver. When a slip of paper was caught the barrel was in far enough!

    I was uncomfortable with the rig in a press so it went in upside down between the padded jaws of a vice. I turned a brass gas fitting to the chamber then drove it with a rod. It took some substantial persuasion.
    There was .008 interference. I turned it down to .002". Measure the journal and your barrel. If you've got pin gages it makes it easier.

    Figure out where the barrel needs to go to with the bolt. Ideally the bolt should hit the receiver and head space right. I don't have 32 acp gauges so I set it up so the bolt hit the receiver and cartridge at the same time. Since its a blow back with a spring on the floating firing pin -- anyway I've had no problems.

    Its more comfortable for me to "feel" a barrel with a hammer than a press. Since the chamber end is delicate the coin seperater might not work. I played with a couple of pieces of brass -- the gadget is in the shop, I'll get a picture.

    Drive the barrel into the right place -- top and bottom count so rotational right place too. drill out the pin hole. bang the pin in.

    Tap it a few times and check the bolt position.

    My son posted the Apocalypse was nigh.

    It snowed in Georgia and the old ones (meaning me) opened a facebook account.

    Bob was one of the first ones to run me down. Whatchadoing brought him here.

    You never fail to amaze me Winn.
