First if I had lots of money I would not be here asking questions.
I purchased a barrel and it was supposed to be good used, post war army issue that I would not have to headspace but it's not. It's blued, no markings and 6 ridges has been mounted but does not look to be shot much,. thoughts on barrel.
I place I live is a geographical oddity, one gunsmith want 75.00 to mount a barrel but can't get to it until the second coming and the other wants 200.00.. so
Torque needed to tighten barrel 20 degrees?
average torque for action?
Can old barrel be cut down (0.5"+ )and recrowned with any worthwhile success?
Barrel clamp- I have to build a barrel clamp, thoughts ideas ??/
wood guy suggested white maple for clamp
other than marring the surface, could clamp pictured bend/stress barrel?
