So far I have. Mostly. They didn’t tell me NOT to drive so I started doing that a month or so ago. They’d probably want me sitting more and staying off stepladders too but they didn’t say not to. Stuff doesn’t get ITSELF off the shelf.I hate to say it but just make sure you follow the doctors orders and don’t rush it we ain’t 20 year old’s anymore
No that sort of thing ended in 2016. I got so far behind on personal stuff that I got really resentful this summer and just quit altogether. I’ll still do a build here and there but usually for a local trade or for something I REALLY want. Besides I don’t have an FFL or one to work with. Maybe part of an early semi retirement thing but that’s a ways off. Besides I’m back to work and guns don’t pay like jets do.Don’t want to cause any problems with anyone but maybe you should consider doing a few customer build’s while you’re laid up. Keep you busy and get some green bean’s for the freezer
Rough it with a dremel and finish with a small file. Practice on some crappy barrel stubs before you go nuts on a real ($$$) barrel. Take time to understand WHY the cut is shaped the way it is. It’s key to not let the extractor hit the chamber edge of the cut or it’ll roll a burr into the chamber when the bolt goes home on an empty chamber.How do you do your extractor cuts?
Im sure there will be a range report before too long.That's awesome - and this thread has been a ton of fun to follow. I love seeing projects like this and it's awesome that you were able to use a Remington barrel.
