Should be easy to clean that old Krylon off the action. Take about 5 minutes to have it media blasted and will look like new and ready for a new coating.
Excellent job! Your labor of love will soon pay off. Hang in there; it will be fully operational before you know it.Spent a few hours with 500 grit wrapped around a popsicle stick/Bic pen/golf tee to expand the mag well of the receiver the bare minimum to lock this mag in. Seems to feed (no barrel installed yet).

All assembled and headspaced. Don't know what I want to do about muzzle device yet. Suppressor would make it even longer and heavier, but still kinda want to. Or a muzzle brake to tame recoil, but I hate muzzle brakes.
Took it out to range today. 1 shot at 100yds was high right, so I measured with reticle and adjusted dials. 2nd shot hit right in bullseye.
