    So instead if starting a new thread I figured I will ask my question here since it's related.


    Looking at my front trunnion I can clearly see how far the old barrel was pressed in. I have a virgin barrel on the way, so my question being: Is the mark inside the trunnion a good starting point on how far to press the new barrel in?

    Im going to end up using one of the all thread methods to pull it in, and my fear is going too far initially, then having a hell of a time backing it out. Im going to rent the gauges and headspace properly, I just want to get close and avoid as many headaches as possible.

    You can use that as a reference.
    But I wouldn't use it as a close reference. Your going to need to remove the all-thread multiple times while checking head space. And don't worry if you go too far, worst case you'll need to buy a $20 power steering pulley puller to move the barrel back out.

    Remember you can check head space with the trunnion out of the receiver, but then you need to remove the barrel again for riveting. Well unless your doing a screw build, then you just need to remember to tap the threads before you start anything.
