Oh yeah.  I got that it takes precision tools and fixtures to change a Colt barrel.  Then after I got to know a couple they invited me to come back to the shop and BS.  I watched them change barrels on several Colts, Rugers and others.  Rather than having six different kinds of action wrenches, they had a tapered piece of wood, just like in the Uberti video.

Bryan Austin:
Love the pressure testing  8)

One thing that I cannot understand on this video, is the statement that on proof firing, "three times the service pressure" was used ! Surely that should be 130% of the guns service pressure, or 30% over normal !


PJ Hardtack:
And you expected better from a TV reporter .... ?

I've given the facts and accurate info to reporters at our CAS events and when I read the article, I can barely recognize my own shoot!

And this after watching him take notes .....

Fox Creek Kid:
Proofing in Italy is a "blue pill" load of 30% over the max.
