Box of goodies from Grand Island, NE arrived today.
All's well that ends well....
Have any recent lots of ammo had split necks prior to being fired? I will be checking these closely.

I have always just used the weed eater line mashed out, pull through method with a pipe cleaner scrub in the chamber. Use the bore solvent of your choice.

Give 'em a ring. They might just send you a stock. I had a MKIII/45 which had a medallion missing from one of the grips. They sent me a new one along with a return shipping label.

I could see the magazine plate working on the synthetic stocks also.
It would add rigidity.

Add front and rear pillars or aluminum blocks, and the synthetics would come into their own.

I remember reading that rimfire barrels are of softer metal than centerfire barrels.

I put a good old wally world Center Point 4-16 on it.
