Just got done test firing. Not the most accurate shooter I've ever had but lots of fun to shoot. New wedge may help accuracy. The hand fit washers under the nipples worked to perfection. 100%...

There is no such thing as a 5/32" socket in Custer SD. I settled on a 3/16" deep socket. Used a die grinder with a cutoff wheel to notch the file lines, cut the notch for the shoulder of the...
