Re: Screw holes w/o Threads
Nat, it's getting worse, I ordered a 17 fireball because zanders was closing them out and I was wanting to build a 6br, plug the ejector button and install a sako extractor. I figured it was as good as any to start with. I ordered the fancy varmit SS fluted HS stock model.
I pulled the barrel and about craped, I had never in my life seen barrel threads so undersized, were talkin rattle the action back and forth a half inch at the tang. The major od was 1.042" and they were cut to a sharp v on the tops. I figured I could pull the stock and barrel and sell them, well not the barrel! unless you want to screw it onto a Winchester!!!.
