IM ASSUMING A SAMLL RING IS ALSO TIGHTEND ON A INNER SHOULDER AS WELL?????????????? IM GOING TO BE DOING ONE SOON???Hi Kernel,
This has been tried before. Mausers require the barrel to impact both the inner and outer locking shoulder. Just the way they were designed. If you do not bear against the inner locking shoulder, your groups will wander as the barrel heats up. The wander is about 4 moa from my experience.
I am not a big fan of Rhineland, they tend to oversimplify. Also, look at the "collar" and compare it to a Savage. It's only about half the width, and I am doubtful that it would stay locked.
Mr Death, you can use my pull through reamer, action wrench and barrel vise for as long you like. Those are the right tools for this job, and will work like a charm on that M48 of yours.
I HAD THE SAME CONCERNS ABOUT ACCURACY AN THE SIZE OF THE LITTLE BARREL NUT. I DO NOTE THAT SAVAGE HAS A LOT MORE THREADS IN THER RECIVER AS DOES REMINGTON THE MORE SUPPORT THE LESS THE BARREL IS GOING TO WADER FROM THE VERY NEED OF A RECIVER WARPING/WALKING DUE TO HEAT ISSUES AN SHORT THREAD INTERFACE IMO.
I ASSUME FROM YOUR POST YOU HAVE TRIED SEATING ON THE RECIVER FACE IN THE PAST??????? I ALMOST GOT THE FEELING THAT THE INNER SHOULDER WAS WHAT REALLY MATTERED AN THE OUTER WAS NOT AS IMPORTANT ?????? ANY THOUGHTS ???
YOUR GING TO REALLY HAVE TO BE PRETTY ACCURATE WITH YOUR MACHINING TO GET BOTH TIGHTEND DOWN EQUALY. IM TRYING TO FIT A ALREADY CHAMBERED BARREL BUT UNTRHEADED BARREL ONTO A RECIVER . IS SEE GETTING THE SHOULDERS AN THE HEAD SPACE PERFCT BEING A BIG CHALLANGE WITH NOT REAMR .
I GUESS YOU WOULD START OUT LONG AN GET BOTH SHOUDERS HITTING CORRECTLY FIRST AN THEN REMOVE EQUIL AMOUNTS UNTILL IT HEAD SPACES????
I MIGHT CHEAT AN JUST SET THE HEAD SPACE TIGHT AN CUSTOMISE DIES TO FIT THE GUN
THE OP WOULD BE DOING HIMSELF A HUGE FAVOR BY TAKING YOU UP ON YOUR OFFER. A SHORT CHAMBERD BARREL AN YOUR STUFF AN HE COULD BE UP AN RUNNIG FOR UNDER $120 WITH SOME OF THE SHORT CHAMBERED BARRELS THAT ARE OUT THERE.
I SEE THERE ARE REPORTS OF RINELAND SCREWIG PEOPLE OVER AS WELL IM NOT SURE IF THERE VALID.
WE NEED A FEW GOOD THREADS ON GUYS THREADING BARREL FOR BOLT ACTONS AN FITTING THEM . ANY ONE WILLING TO SHOW HOW THEY DO IT ????
