    Tumbler Motor question

    Re: Tumbler Motor question Doubled, I solved the same problem in a totally different manner. I bought a $149 chinese cement mixer and fabbed a lid for it. I ran it steady for almost two years and it never missed a lick.

    Re: Removed two Rem700 factory barrels. what a PITA! I wrap mine in newspaper to eliminate the aluminum marr and clamp them in a 20 ton arbor press. Nothing moves, and I can do one in three minutes. Another thing I do differently than most is use the same wrench on all actions. It's a good...

    Gunsmithing 300 AAC Blackout bolt rifle questions

    I've been wanting to build one, but want to avoid the typical ejection problems. My first choice as an action donor is a push-feed Win 70 in 223, but it looks like the extractor/ejector geometry is very close to the problem plauged 700. Has anyone here ever installed a Sako style extractor in a...

    Gunsmithing restocking a 721

    Re: restocking a 721 The factory magazine will work if you tweak the inletting and use some spacers. The magazine is too tall to use otherwise It's much easier to pick up a BDL set up.

    Hunting & Fishing Dog breeds?

    Re: Dog breeds? No experience with RRs, but a Doberman would (IMHO) fit the bill pretty well. You need to check out the breeder, and make sure the parents aren't too high strung, but they can be good family dogs and strike a pretty good balance between pet and protection. The caution about...

    Gunsmithing Can my barrels be rechambers for a looser neck?

    Re: Can my barrels be rechambers for a looser neck? In a word, yes! It's a bit touchy, you need a really good feel for your lathe, or you can just use a t-handle and run the reamer in by hand.

    Gunsmithing 700 trigger pins bending repeatedly

    Re: 700 trigger pins bending repeatedly WOW! He must be rally hammering that bolt! The pins should (if lightly lubed) slip into place w/o a hammer, but there shouldn't be any wiggle in the hole. Peening slightly might work OK, but be very careful and recheck the trigger for safety. Sometimes...
