Re: Savage LRH problem
I scratch my head sometimes.... Why would anyone get perishable tooling from a place like Midway when it's available from a real tooling supplier like MSC, or Production Tool or even Enco where you have a choice in manufacturers and can get what you want for less plus get American made (not that the Midway stuff isn't but then they don't state country of orign).
Besides, what fit class is the tap? It's not stated (I looked). Taps come in fit classes. A fit class is the difference between the major diameter and the root diameter and dictates how tight the mating component engages the thread helix.
Taps normally come in 3 designs, taper, plug and bottoming and I usually get 2 of the 3, taper and plug. A plug tap can be modified to become a bvottoming tap by simply grinding off the base a bit.
Not trying to be critical, just offering alternatives. Again, 2 complete turns of engagement is all that is required...and, on some receivers, not all holes are blind, some are through so one needs to be cognizant that on a through hole, it's easy to run the screw head completely through the receiver and become an interference fit with the bolt, which, don't work.
