So, a few pics…
The bolt and the locking lugs/legs
Here it is sitting on(and coated it) one of THE greatest inventions EVER for metal work; Layout blue. Swab it on, let it dry(few seconds) assemble the parts, and watch for where it wears the blue off/marks it etc… Fast easy finding of contact and abrasion points. Also great for marking and layout, you scribe through it to the bare steel leaving non permanent but highly visible lines/marks. At one point or another I have had the entire action of this rifle coated in this stuff. 😀
Not much change, but it is a bit sharper cornered whereit engages the action bar lugs along the back edge and back lower corner. Also made the lugs a littme taller to tighten up the action in the reciever a bit.
Pretty impressive project you’ve got going on there!
