I know on the rear the lenth does not matter. I would assume that longer is better. The question is how long could the front drive screws be before conflicing with the barrel or something else i am not thinking of? I am wondering about the length for he front with and without the orig rivets removed.
Thanks a ton

I believe the 3/8" is almost pushing it; I've been using the 1/4" ones myself.

I've read 1/4" on the "how tos". I took a rough measurement to double check and I don't think more than a 1/4" will fit the front trunion with or without rivet.. I measured a Polish UF...

1/4" at he front worked for me. Make sure to clean the holes and use a threadlocker of some sort.

3/8 will take you into Barell metal, BTDT.

if that is the case i see a problem. I have completely removed all rivets and removed the barrel. I do not exactly like doing rivits so i plan on using u-drive. that means i need to use number 10 to fit the drilled out holes. Seems to me that the shortest #10s are 3/8. That is from McMaster-carr. Seems liek i may have a problem.... BTW how far into the barrel metal? I little does not bother me.

You could grind the screws down to what you need if they are too long.

You might try www.fastenal.com I got some 1/4" long u-drives from them locally. Shipping was pretty quick too.

Yep, ordered some when I was going to do my Udrive build, then decided to go rivet when I had problems pressing in the UDRIVE. The helical "teeth" on the Udrive stripped out against the trunion and I got no bite. Ended up riveting bucking against the barell. Second one done this way so far so good although only have about 200 rounds each thru. Not a very good gage on longevity by far.

Barrell metals comes after approx .125 (someone correct me if I am wrong)
