Re: Barrel threads

The threaded barrel joint is an error source on most modern rifles. There is in fact a number of ways to reduce the impact of this error source, some are quite a bit more cost-effective than others.

Re: Barrel threads

I had just read through that same chapter today as well, funny you should post this, as I was wondering about it now myself. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I havn't checked out the link to the other thread yet but will take a peak. I did find his sketch on pg 115 to be reversed though, the receiver face would have to be to the left, would it not?

With that small of contact area I wonder how many times the barrel could be switched and not gaul and ruin either one, he was using CM I believe? It seems like what would work best is a progressive rate thread pitch starting finer and going coarser at the barrel shoulder. Can you cut a progressive thread like that on a lathe?

You can on mine, but I wouldn't.
If you have something that you disassemble and reassemble enough times, sooner or later, you'll have two!
