I then cleaned the end with some 400 grit sand paper and my thumb....which now sports a blister...

Image

I noticed that for some reason the barreled receiver fit very tight in this stock, I got out the lamp black and painted the bottom of the lug where the take down screw resides and checked to see if it was making contact. As I suspected it was not. When I pushed on the back of the receiver to get it all the way in, the front would lift up.

Image

So I broke out the small files and sand paper, it now fits snugly, but easily and no more rocking back and forth.

Image

Before going further we need to install a pillar for the factory take down screw and then figure out how to anchor the rear of the stock. I had a bunch of these flanged wahers in my parts bin, I used one on the target rifle project and it worked perfect, so I am using one here as well

Image

I drilled a 23/64" hole down to the stock escutcheon and fitted the washer

Image

I had to remove some material so it would touch the escutcheon while sitting flush and not raise the action in the stock

I covered the barre/receiver junction with tape and a liberal coating of car wax to prevent the JB weld from sticking to it

Image

I mixed up the JB weld and put some under the washer and on top, when the barreled action is clamped it, the excess with squish out and the flanged washer and escutcheon will touch each other, preventing any movement.

Image

The next day I pulled the the gun apart, there was a few small pieces of tape stuck to the JB weld, but otherwise everything is peachy. The fit is perfect, no rocking fore and aft and it feels rock solid.

Image

I had planned on using the 10-24 x 2.25" long button head stainless screws to anchor the receiver.

The screws will go through the rear trigger pin hole which is 3/16".

3/16" is equal to .1875", a #10 cap screw is .190, slightly larger, which will fit, but will be tight.

Image


So how do I drill the stock and get the holes lined up perfectly? I found a post on the Rimfire Central forum by Hipshot, he built a jig using a piece of angled aluminum and long 6-48 bolts, screwed into the scope rail holes.

I bought some #6-48 screws that are 1/2" long, which should be plenty long enough.

I couldn't find a piece of 90 degree angled aluminum, so I made one. The metal is from the same sheet I plan on using for the side panels.

Image

Image

I marked and drilled the top holes with a 9/64" drill bit, then drilled the side trigger pin holes with a 3/16" drill bit

A trial fit with the #10 cap screw

Image

Then again with the trigger group installed. I drilled the front trigger holes as well, but I don't think I will be using them.

Great photo documentation, Casey.

I was just talking to SAGELA the other day about home crowning jobs . . . so it's helpful to see this. thumbsup

update time

I wanted to build a barrel shroud, I looked into buying one, but nothing really fit the size and look that I wanted, So I scrounged around the shop and this is what I found:


3/4" IPS PVC tubing, it fits over the barrel but isn't so big as to be obtrusive.

Image

I want to bring it right up to the edge of the receiver, but the old school scope rail hangs over the edge.

Image
Luckily I had a newer production one that is flush with the receiver.

Image

I cut the tube to length and notched it for the barrel tennon

Image

Image

Image

I still need to remove material from the stock so the barrel will be in the center of the tube

Image

sanding the barrel channel with 60 grit paper wrapped around a small portion of the 3/4" tubing

Image

I am planning on using these 10-24 bolts and T nuts (on the left)

Image

While modifying them to fit in the round tube, I screwed up the threaded part....and like a dummy I had only purchased two of them, so I ordered some more

Image

While I wait for the T nuts to show up, I went on with the building of the building of the shroud. I had these two shrouds that were made for the 10/22 as examples, I think I like the larger holes better.
Image

Before marking the holes I found the center line and trimmed the tube to length

Image

I just happen to have the right drill bit that matched the holes in the store bought shroud.

I then marked and drilled the side holes, in the center of the gap between the top and bottom holes.

Image

I was not at all happy with the holes, some are oblong, some are not straight, but before starting over I figured I would paint it first. black textured paint has a way of hiding flaws

Image


...and I was right, with the black textured paint on the shroud, you have to look hard to find the boo boos
Back to the T-nuts, I got another set (I bought 8 of them this time....). I flattened out the lock tabs and curved the flange to match the round shroud.

Image

I then epoxied them in place

Image

I then ran into a snag, the T-nits were hitting the barrel and causing misalignment, this won't work, I'll have to find another way, maybe attach them to the outside of the shroud?

Image

After some debate back and forth, I decided to build another shroud, perhaps correct some of the mistakes I made on the first one.

Image

I then modified another pair of T-Nuts

Image

I had to route out a recess for the T-Nuts to sit, so they didn't cause misalignment with the barrel/shroud

Image

After taping up the barrel channel, adding clay to the T-Nut threads and screwed in the picatinney rail bolts, I mixed up some 5-minute epoxy and clamped everything together. We want the T-Nuts to be glued to the shroud in perfect alignment with the holes for the picatinney rail screws

Image

We have success!

Image



While the paint was drying on the shroud I shortened the bolts

After a couple of coats of paint it is ready for prime time
