I'm trying to get a measurement for the hole on the LH side of the receiver for the camming piece (aka trunion). I'm doing mine up via Pirate's build method, and before I screw something up, I'd like to get a 2nd opinion.
What I'm unsure about, is how tight the camming piece fits into the hole, or if the hole has enough front-to-back play to give the camming piece some wiggle room. Therefore I'd like to simply get a measurement of that hole's front-to-back dimension.
I'm working from an Angola 3-cut receiver, the middle cut is directly through the hole.
On the RH side, the barrel removal door is said to "lock down against the camming piece"... on mine, I cannot see a wear mark on the camming piece and the end of the door isn't worn. That leads me to conclude that there is a slight amount of clearance, about as thick as a business card, between the door and the front of the camming piece - is this correct?
I'm posting here since I figure I'll get a faster response than the MG42.us forum
FYI, Pirate's build info is really helpful. I'm documenting mine to have some pics for the 'ol album.
