always work on the cheapest part to replace, if you can.
how many threads per inch are the receiver threads? Or MM if you have them?
If i touch reciever or bolt it will alter the rim/head space i have set up with my 17A/H and thats a no.no.no.
At the moment the 22H stainless heavy barrel is redundant i cant see me using it again in its present form.
I dont have the 17A/H gun at this moment its on loan to my gamekepper friend and cant get in my unheated garage/workshop caus of the snow so cant get a proper measurement but when i get it back i will uncrew the barrel one compleat turn and insert feeler gauges to lineup my reciever slot and that will give me a measurment to slowly remove off the shoulder
I do have a good heavy lathe and the skill to fit the barrel myself to give me the correct rim space but never used s chamber ream so i will leave that to a smith if i can find one.
