Pirate I got a question I hope you have some advice for.
I just started messing with my kit & receiver, I got the receiver stub off the barrel and was comparing the barrel to the receiver. I got a Vector receiver and the barrel hole is about .090" smaller then the OD of the barrel.
I really don't want to turn that much off the barrel, unless I have to.
Do you have any suggestions how to open up the receiver hole any more?
My mill isn't big enough and I don't see anyway to use the lathe.
I got all the kits prepped, these are some most excellent looking kits, Jerry did a great job of selecting them. they have really nice wood as well as like new metal.
I got 3 of the 5 machine operations done on the bolt carriers and should have them complete by the end of the day friday. then I will be able to start barrel installation next week.
Anyone want to sell a front stub like that in the photo, with the threads intact?
I split the stubs to get them off, they are scrap.
Thank you Pirate for moving your forums to Gunco.
I have now lost ANY small desire I ever had to open a shop like yours.
Best wishes for continued success & I'm staying retired to play with my own projects on MY time....Heh.....Heh
