Just received part #1 of my custom build. Bighorn Arms 12 point barrel nut. Pretty ain't it.
whats next,,trigger guard screw or maybe,bolt handle,,NEED TO KNOW,,,
What action,stock,trigger, caliber are you looking at?
Might I sujest a 6.5 CM!!!
I gotta pass the talisman on, I think I just went off the deep end!!
1 talisman going to Kmart from hog
barrel nut,,its got to be the barrel,,come on whats next,,
I'm in the same boat. Picked up a set of Redding bushing dies in 284 and a box full of Norma 284 brass. Too cheap to pass up. Now I find myself looking for parts to build a 284 Winchester. Have the dies and brass now I need the rifle. It is a vicious cycle. I wonder if there might be some sort of 12 step program for this malady.
nothing to do with your post,,,its your name,Downhill,yep,thats where your bank account goes around here,,,sometimes very fast,,,
Mike..... I though you were getting a TL3? Why not just get a vice and do it up nice without that thing???
There is. I went. It didn't work. Rehab is for quitters!
Barrel will be here next week, trigger soon, action 10 weeks, McMillan 5-6 months. That's all the info I'm giving. Suspense! Stay tuned. Can I cut eye holes in my bag?
I knew it,,had to be a barrel,,and yes that is permissible,,
Clancys post has me thinking. How to torque that nut with a headspace gauge installed. What do you think of this.
I think I just got what your saying. You mean shouldered right?
The torque will not be the correct number- not that it really matters as long as its tight.
Yes I meant shouldered. You already have a barrel vice. Several very good smiths will make you a shouldered barrel.
I don’t know how this barrel nut thing ever became a “thing...”
I’m a 100% with Clancy, you’re building maybe a once in a lifetime custom, not rebarreling a Savage.
When everybody became a “gunsmith”
We have found our common ground, Haha.
I’ve enjoyed reading about your new build. I wasn’t trying to be critical, just not a fan of the barrel nut. The bad thing about customs is , their like Lays potato chips. You can’t just have one!
