    Not to my knowledge. Maybe this will bring him around, and give him some time to come to Jesus before the end. Thanks for all the prayers for the healing and his soul the most important.

    Today's work. Because the builder had filed the hole for the Wedge bigger to get it to fit. I made New inlays and recessed them into the stock so they are easier on your hand when the gun is fired. Now the wedge holds the barrel down snug and the...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
