    I hope you have better luck getting everything aligned than i did. i've recut my tack welds 3x. That was the reason that i built a alignment/welding jig It's made up of two parts, front and rear. The rear square section rides in the bolt rails. it's cut to approx the same dims as the bolt. I used some 1"x1.25" bar stock. The front section was made from 1" round stock. I just need to turn a bushing for the front barrel support, and I need to add some stops to set the length. Other than that theres not much to it. (topcover thrown in for size refrence)

    Now that's the trick!!!

    I've installed the trunnion, bolt , barrel and bushings and there's still alot of questionable movement.

    1/4" all-thread to run completely through the rifle (the buffer's removed) in an attempt to hold it straight.

    My hat's off to pirate and those able to eyeball alot of this.

    Yes Will, and they're pricey as mtdew pointed out. My capitalistic heart though is warmed by the

    $5500

    Even a blind hog finds an acorn every now and again.




    Aligning and attaching rails is a bit of a challenge. The rivet heads travel in a recess in the bolt. I've swapped bolts and rails trying for a good relationship. Tricky as ex's at Christmas gatherings.
