I knew you'd be happy! I won't go anywhere else... + 1 for Heatnbeat rules.

Well I have to admit he may be responsible for the sling rivet, but only because I F'd up 3 and then gave up. All 3 split; does anybody have any idea how to do them? The only tools I found were pretty expensive considering that I almost never have any call for them.

Thanks againfor the kind words, that barrel reallywas a challenge. Puting a used base on a used barrel is really iffy; it makes you realize how little uniformity there is in the taper pin holes!

There is a specific hollow rivet tool (punch) that I know the guys who rebuild M1 helmet liners use to roll the rivet real nice.I'll see if I can contact one of my old aquaintances on egay and see if he still sells them.I forget what the punch is called,but I'll find out for ya Heat.
ETA cracked beat me.Those are the type punches I was referring to.

I made a punch like that, maybe I didn't get it quite right. It looked right though!!

I'll have to get a price on them. The ones I found were $50 plus. The one from Aircraft pruce looks good too, and reasonable.

I have had good luck using regular roll pin punches, working slowly and not trying to roll the "corners" with just one whack. A little grease for lub, and tap lightly, easy does it. I don't recall the size, but it's one of the sizes you need for AR roll pins anyway, so likely you already have it.

Well, I'm out of work again, but hope to have enough together in a couple weeks to send Jerrell a barrel to cut and do some fabricating on. You just couldn't ask for better work, or a nicer guy! When I first was out of work he sent me pics from a truck show he went to to cheer me up because he knew I liked old trucks. It worked!

I saw a swivel rivet tool on the Brownells site recently, marked as a new item. I do not know if it is designed for the retro rifles, but might be worth a look.

Looks Good !

I am still waiting on parts from 45B so I can send to HB. I haven't forgot about ya Jerrell......just still waiting.

Just ordered it last week, should be here this week. I've been debating whether to rivet the sling swivel or use a roll pin. In any case, I'll report back on whether it was worth the $40.

Ahh, a first hand report would be nice!

Thanks
