"ALL" rifles should be head spaced before firing for safety.
Even though all parts are Mil Spec they can be different enough to vary the head space
from to tight to beyond the limits of a field gauge. (If the bolt closes on a field gauge
head space is to great and the bolt has to be changed to one that will fall somewhere
around .003 to .004.
If you head space it and it is in this range you are OK. Head space gauges are very
inexpensive and well worth the money (Normally $25.00 to $35.00 dollars).
Don't take a chance !!!!!!
Buy a go gauge and start placing shims on it until it won't close and that will be your head space.
