    Very small progress , after eating I went out and managed to get the Firing pin block drilled and tapped for the breech face . You'll have to excuse the ugly screw , I ordered tapered head screws I could counter sink . And got fillister screws...

    Don't be bashful about starting one , the worst that can happen is you screw up and have to make a new part . The book doesn't give a lot of dimensions , before I started I found that to be quite intimidating. As I go along I find it...

    So next up we have the breech face and firing pin block , The breech face will get a 6-40 screw to attach the breech face . And then both will be pinned to the breech blocks . And to give prospective to how things fit together.

    That's easy ... the only machine tool you need to own or have access to is a lathe . You need it to bore the reciever ring and do the barrels shank . Everything else is hand tool eligible .

    If I buy a new barrel it will be a 25-20 , otherwise I am pretty open minded if I find a deal on a barrel . Before I can permanently weld the reciever sides to the reciever ring I'll need to fit a barrel , but I have quite a bit I can get...

    More then a few people have this crazy notion that you need a shop full of machine tools and a huge assortment of hand tools to build a rifle . They are wrong ! I used to have this same misguided notion myself , then I found a frank...
