Slim, it worked, thanks, pretty sure I messed it up the way I thought, just didn't know how to fix it.

Oh and here is that lab puppy (not mine) that rolled in the pancake syrup and tried to it off by rolling in the grass, he looks so sad. ::)

Gunsmithing / Re: Why Oh Why 20" octagon Barrel
« Last post by Abilene on January 25, 2022, 05:48:58 PM »
Yes it could be done.  I have heard of it being done with perfect headspace, which is good because if it wasn't then the re-aligning and chambering gets more expensive.  Maybe some gunsmiths who have actually done it will chime in.  The barrels are interchangeable and since you are staying with "large bore" the bolt and carrier will also match.

If you do something like that, you can always sell the original barrel to recoup some of your cost.

I have a new question for you guys concerning this topic.  This is just a thought; crazy idea; or just wondering.

I have heard it stated around here and other forum that parts between the Cim 1866 and 1873 are somewhat interchangeable.

With that thought -- Is it possible to screw an 1866 - 24" barrel 38/40 from like VTI (if available) into an 1873 steel receiver that once had a  24" - 44/40 barrel on it and have it, time-out as is (ie - headspace)?  Would then all the existing necessary parts from the 44/40 fit into the corresponding 1866's - barrel groove cuts for the nose-cap tenon and magazine ring?  Ultimately lining-up/spacing-out properly.

Or just a totally DUMB idea?  Just fishing here for options.  Can handle the truth.

I hadn't really thought about it. ::)

Will you be at Roca Saturday? I plan to be. Maybe we could discuss it then?
