Re: 6mm Blues

Well, I'm an idjit. I saw where it said "6mmRem," and you know, I thought it was a 6mm Remington 700....

One more clamping issue with the Mausers: There might be round cylinders of metal around the screws that go up from the triggerguard toward the bottom of the receiver and the recoil lug. If they touch the bottom of the receiver, then when you tighten the screws all you are doing is tightening the triggerguard into the receiver without ever grabbing the stock. The solution is to grind off the tops of the cylinders until they don't touch the receiver.

Bed the whole receiver, with a pad of epoxy in front of the recoil lug, relieve under the bottom of the recoil lug so the screw clamps the whole receiver instead of just tbe bottom of the recoil lug, and if it doesn't shoot, I'm gonna start pulling my hair out....

Re: 6mm Blues

Hi SDS, well im taking the rifle back to him on sunday and explane the situation, then he can decide if he and myself will fix it or he may want to take it back to Tim (the builder) and give him a chance to fix it its his choice. If I do it I will keep you informed and if your advice helps I will sign you up to hair Club for Men maybe I can get a group rate [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Anyway thanks a lot for all the help.

Re: 6mm Blues

Hot dawg, I get to keep my hair a little longer (not much longer; the drain gets most of it).

Thanks for reporting back. I'd rather be wrong and know it than never know what happened. 1/4 MOA (maybe less) coming up!
