    I always used Dupont auto body red compound initially when cleaning a mil suro's barrel. Since the hewer trucks and cars have that protective covering on the paint Haven't seen anyone use it. I make up a semi paste with the red compound with some...

    Just a thought. Dies are hardened and regular high speed steel won't work. Think you would be better off trying carbide tooling or maybe find a shop that has a surface grinder. I think the model 33 is probably one of the best looking rolling blocks...

    Never thought about using a heat gun to heat up the barrel of the grease gun. Gotta try it before I perform surgery on what remains of the grease cartridge. Was a moly grease cartridge by the way. Thanks,Frank

    And if you use the burrs on wood stocks,try it out on a scrap of wood the same type as the stock. Start at less than full speed or even less to get a feel as to how it cuts. Have a variable speed one and if at full speed it is very to loose control...

    Fisher, actually bought it off a gent on the greybeard outdoors cannon and mortar forum. I'd have to do the math to figure out what 40mm actually is though. Imagine slugging that barrel. Probably get a good 3' maybe a little more. My lathe only has...

    Larry, saw the post by Reverend Al and that pretty clearly showed why the Lee Enfield was the better choice rather using a 1891 action. Magazine is much closer to both the feed ramp and chamber. Frank

    I have about 4' section of 40mm anti air craft gun barrel sitting in the garage. Been there for years. Bore well lubed. Would like to make up maybe a mini Napoleon out of it. But with a twist, instead of a wheeled carriage maybe a civil war naval...

    I had two problem children who's barrels wouldn't clean up. One was a 1895Win saddle ring carbine. No matter what I tried,solvents, brushing even Rem Clean wouldn't get the lumps out of the barrel. Made in 1915 probably had copper nickle...

    Might check with someone who sells used or discontinued iron sights. Lyman used to make a 17xnb and a few others that replaces the front sight as a complete unit. I had a Smith Corona 1903A3 that had a Lyman 48 rear sight and the 17xnb and had tons...

    Actually the whole idea of asking how to do a cut started out with a BSA 22rf martini that had a non standard forend. Instead of the long style used on a model 12 or 12.15 it looks like it is a stevens forend because it has that short section up...

    If you have good eyes maybe try the Buffington sight made for the trapdoor Springfield. Or maybe look for an original earlier model trapdoor. Course these were made for a round tapered barrel. Use new mounting screws as the originals if I remember...
