On one of my Romy kits I had drilled out the barrel pin and while doing so I got off track. It made the hole a little wider in the trunnion and barrel. I'm sure someone else has made this mistake in the past and was hoping to see if I could substitute the barrel pin with some type of fabricated pin to feel in the extra space?

Some guys have used drill rod to make oversized barrel pins.

so basically if I can find something that will wedge in there tight, it should be okay?

You will probably want the hole to be a couple of thousandths smaller than your new pin. Use decent steel, like a drill rod, or even the shank of a drill that you already have.

Go to McMaster, MSC or your favorite industrial supplier and look for some 7mm drill rod. I think 4 feet was a few bucks.

my hole turned out more like an oval. In fact it almost looks like the shape of an 8. What happened was I didn't have a press. I drilled one end, then started on the other. Well, you can guess the rest. I have one perfect hole 7mm with a 2 - 3 mm hole extending out the side. I can slip in one 7mm pin and something else to fill in the rest. And yes, I have invested into a drill press now

It sounds like you may have the makings of a fine dummy gun. The only way I would use that rifle is if I had a nice round precise hole milled/drilled then used a slightly oversized pin. One thing I don't take chances on is headspace.

Or drill out the egged side, and bush it to 7mm.. I think I have some 7mm rod laying around here.


BTW: If it is unfixable, I might be interested in whats left, I have been looking for a rebarrel project (I would set the headspace during the barrel fitting process.

I'll let you know. I'm going to play around with it for a while and see what I can do. If anything Iwill part it out to sale.

im with dale dummygun

you cant drill the pin oversided much
when the pin size gos up you lose meat on your barrel
and its already the weakest part of the barrel with the most pressure
take off to much and you turn a gun into a bomb

I'll be parting out soon. Also may have a cold steel receiver (just received) to sell also.
