I have seen some places list 20 parts and other places list 15. Which is it and what are they.
Thanks

(3) Trunion




A clarification for newcomers: Only the front trunion, correct?

'Galland':

Yes, you are correct. The trunnion into which the barrel is fastened is a countable part. The rear block, or rear trunnion, that sits at the back of the receiver is not a countable part.

There is only one trunnion, the part that mounts the barrel to the receiver.

Referring to the stock tang as a trunnion, while technically incorrect, has become accepted terminology amongst home builders, but it is not "countable".
