    Fitting the front sight. The dovetail is actually part of the front trunnion. The front trunnion is attached to the barrel by two bolts

    Front of the barrel which attaches to the front trunnion.

    the rear trunnion is machined as part of the barrel. You can see the extractor slot in the rear trunnion.

    If a barrel swap is needed remove the two front bolts from the trunnion and slide the barrel out the rear of the receiver and slip another in and bolt it up. That simple...

    Anyone can. Never too late.
    I struggle with making breakfast anymore. When my eyes need to do small they tend to just over tears from dry eye disease. And while I do have the building to have a killer shop filling it with the tools is another thing. I'd have to sell something major as my 401K is being drained by Brandonomics 4.78


    Transfering some basil & dill from the hydroponic garden to out side to way to long.

    I have one. The guy across the street from where I grew up was into Ham Radio. He had one on his work bench. One of his kids was a year young then me and neighbor kids were tight.

    After they died Randy was over cleaning out the house getting it ready to sell & came over & talk with my dad. My dad mentioned I had been looking for an old American made one. Two weeks latter I got that one.
