Yes, the breach locking block on the Remington is silver soldered to the barrel. As far as welding changing the heat treatment, two ideas are at work. First, barrels are not hardened. Second, I would...

Guess I'm missing something. How will I save money by buying something when I already have the barrel and the shotgun, would do the gunsmithing myself and will make the chamber reamer? I would...

Depending on income, some would say the same thing about the whole gun.

My position is, since the screw is so easy to fix, why be lazy and buy a new one?

Single shotgun-rife project

For years, I have wanted to mount a rifle barrel on my 1893 Remington single-barrel receiver. (You're not really going to expect me to have a reason, are you?) The plan includes a .401 bore barrel...

The difference is inside. Don't think I could take a shot that would show it. Maybe later today I can section one of the shells that is too corroded or bent up to use. Then the difference would show.

Another question. A few of these cases are Rem-UMC and have the large primer pocket, but all are the "balloon" type. So, when did the drawn/solid base shells make their appearance?

Cold thread I guess, but forged is stronger than cast IF the same steel is used and the heat treating is appropriate for each--heat treating might be different for each.

Where are the rough Mausers?

Decades ago my browsing in gun shops turned up very few really nice early Mausers--models 91 through 96--and lots of beater type 91s and 93s.

Now, I don't see many in any condition and none of the...

Not. 510 Receiver is steel. I shop made a receiver peep for mine that looks sort of like a Williams Foolproof. Drilled and tapped the reciever--it's steel.

My only NRA disassembly guide doesn't have the 220 or the 219, so, have any of you had a 220 apart? (This is the no *prefix, pre 1946 version.)


I have the stock and barrel off and need to tear...
