    Pic #65 & 66 show how the thru drilled holes were plugged with the under barrel rib mounting screws looked from inside the bore when I received the rifle from Armoredman. There was about 1/8" recess inside the barrel at three different spots....

    On second thought, maybe LAGS can mount a dot to my T/C Renegade? Wouldn't that be a winner?

    I tried lasers, Crimson Trace, and they have some trade offs, as well - a jerkily moved laser is hard to see in sunlight, for one thing. Trying to do that one handed while grappling would probably be fun, but I definitely see the point. I used...

    I have made custom Softer Jaws for my Vise's out of old Zinc Wheel Weights cast to the shape I needed. Lead Jaws work too. But the zinc weights are not going to ever be cast into Boolits , so why not use it for something. Plus Zinc is a little...

    These are the types of screws that I used. As you can see in pic #63 , there is a partial countersink for the base of the screw head to bottom out into. Then the remaining screw head will be filed flat to the outside of the barrel.

    These are pictures from inside of the barrel. I was able to use a Flat headded screw , screwed in tight to the outside of the barrel. I then measure the screw and remove it so I could file off any excess screw that protruded into the bore. When...

    I have found most of my Vise's at Yard sales or moving sales over the past 50 years. Most I bought , used them for a while , then sold them off for like a 400 % profit if they didn't fit what I need. But I did get one of my drill press Vise's on...

    One thing I should mention , I Do Not use the JB steel weld or the Gorilla Weld. The Gorilla Weld eats thru the release agent. So your slug sticks in the bore. If you guys want to try something like this , I would recommend you play with the...

    Pictures #57& 58 were made in the cut off section of the barrel. All I did was put a patch lubed with Johnson Paste Wax on a cleaning jag that fits the bore. Then coated the inside if the bore several times. Then ran the cleaning rod and jag with...

    The trigger is bedded and re inletted. I also made the Lapping Slug to fix the barrel. Look how good that rifling is. This gun was worth rebuilding for sure.

    It depends on what tools or jigs that I have to make. The tools are kind of specialized to certain brands or models. And I don't always work on that model with a lot of these issues. And this gun is a Lefty. I have never had one like this in...

    The one thing that is taking up most of my time in doing this project is making the Jigs and tools to do the repairs. Like clamps and jigs to hold the lock to fill in the holes from the previously drilled holes in the lock from the mis laid out...

    Hmmm ? I wonder if I should leave one of the holes and use it as a Gas Port to make this into a Semi or Full Auto Hawken ?

    Those holes will be filled with 10/32 hard screws threaded in with Red Locktite. I will take my bore scope and look down the barrel and watch as I thread them in. I will stop when the screw starts to come into the rifling. Then I will take the...
