Whoa! Back from the dead.

I'll be curious to hear how that relic shoots, if that happens.

Hey, I found this rusty bottle cap.

Can you build me a newish looking, 1920's bottle of Coca Cola? [smilie=icon_lol.gif]

new to the site... great info from everyone so far. nut i'm wondering if anyone knows how to get into gunsmithing (other than a formal school). I've been a machinist going on 3 years and about 2 years of formal training. I'd love to get the opportunity to learn under some of you old timers and be able to extend the American tradition of smithing before everything moves to china.

This came in the shop as a seriously beat up receiver and a barrel assemble, the rest was up to me to salvage.

I think it's pretty much done, I may tune up the trigger a bit, but I think it's g2g.

Today, I developed an even greater appreciation for GlockMonger's amazing revolver skills.

It all started when our own Mr. samson graciously sold me a nice S&W 638 and I noticed a Titanium J-frame cylinder on Midway's web site.

At first, I just swapped out the original steel cylinder using all of the original parts, including the original extractor. The two cylinder's lengths are exactly the same so it worked. Timing was "good enough", but maybe just a tiny bit slow. It was a very satisfying, 15 minute parts change . . . not a gun smithing project.

However, the Titanium cylinder came with a brand new extractor . . . All it needed was fitting . . . I resisted for a while. Today I decided to finish the job correctly.

Based on the slag around the cuts, the original factory extractor was fitted using some kind of power tool and maybe a jig. I have an evil Dremel tool and lots of carbide bits . . . but, I am a big chicken.

So, I reached for a file. The only straight file I own with a safe (smooth) edge next to the cutting surfaces is the little guy pictured below.

Image

Something like four thousand tiny file strokes and several dozen disassembly / assembly cycles later the timing is perfect.

I now have a new appreciation for "The Monger" and his skills! And. this is a just a trivial part of what he does day to day. [smilie=icon_redface.gif]

Oh yeah, I did need the loupe. [smilie=icon_lol.gif]

haha, good to see some people realize not much is R&Ring parts. BTW, it is a ream that is used.
Make sure the timing is good and the lock up is as it should be. Next it needs to be "ranged" with the proper tooling, then check said specs again.

This is a recent pawn shop rescue. I cleaned up it's bumps/bruises (and a little slide over hang), blasted and parkerized it, then added a short trigger and some micarta grips. It's circa 1995 production.

I've had a complete/fitted, M1991A1 compact top end laying around for my Officer's for some time now, so while I was at it, I decided to redo them all to match (blast and park):

Update;
I helped a buddy with some work on his Colt Government Model and he surprised me with a gift....
a nice wide spur hammer:) I decided to install it in the 1991:

I have a few Nerf Guns I'd like give the steampunk treatment to. Yours turned out great. Like to see what you do for goggles.
