I am waiting on a range report. I am in the process of doing my first solo build using lay around parts, kind of a frankingun. My machine skills are a little lacking but I am learning. My barrel is chucked up and indicated in right now. As soon as the electricity is restored I am going to make some chips.
One question? How did you bore your recoil lug in the mill? I bought a lathe fixture for that purpose. What tooling did you use?
Another question.....did trueing those threads scare you any? It scared the heck out of me. I ordered the PTG/KIFF kit to use in the future it scared me so bad. Mine came out real nice, but I do not think I will be doing anymore in the lathe until I get a bit more experiance. I was a nervous wreck whe I got through.
How did you chuck up and indicate your bolt? I was so frazzled from trueing up those threads that I havent attempted that yet. I turned a fixture to screw into the back of the bolt body and a sleeve to hold the front of the bolt in the steady rest. Do you think that is the best way?
