    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...

    You can't miss what they probably looked like. They had a Pistol Grip stock shaped like a Kentucky Pistol.

    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...

    I also see what Bubba tried to do. He had drilled the stock and the barrel so he could screw on the nose cap thru the nose cap and stock and threaded into the barrel to anchor it. That was Stupid. With the front of the stock ,screwed to the...

    Pictures # 40- 42 show the holes in the trigger base that had the holes drilled off center or too close to the end from what I like. I will re-drill them correctly or should I say , to my liking. Picture # 44 shows that the nose cap was not...

    See the difference between pictures #37 and #30. You will see how much it improved the fit of the barrel to the barrel channel at the Tennon / wedge area. That is a very important point on the stock.

    It is hard to see in picture #39 , but I had to weld up an extension to the front trigger lever. The picture #15 on page 2 of this thread shows that plate filed off round which caused it not to hit the sear lever any more. If this does not work ,...
