Hints on How-To - Please
I need some constructive thinking (help!)
I'm making a monoblock for a SxS shotgun, double under bite.
It's all fitted, now just to cut the locking bolt slots in the underlugs.
But there is two lugs - if one slot is binding, and I overcut the other, oops!
So - is there a logical method of doing this, an "ancient gunmaker's secret"?
Hope this makes sense - thanks in advance.
If you don't have it then you need Ellis Brown's book http://www.bundukipublishing.com/doublerifle.htm
he goes into great detail on fitting monoblocks, I used both smoke and fit method and prussian blue on the bolt for the under lugs.
I am working on a .303 right now http://forums.nitroexpress.com/postl...Board=dblbuild just waiting on a chamber reamer to continue.

I'm not certain what your question is exactly. A little more detail, or better yet pictures, would be helpful. I have pictures of how I cut and fit a mono-block for an old "Jones Screw Grip" action, but the idea should be at least similar. If I can help in some way let me know.
At any rate, good luck with your project.

I will go the blue-and-try way.
Will probably get the book as suggested.
