Got a Brownells a couple months ago.

It is just fine in terms of finish. Most important thing to me was the bore size, would it be as tight on my Kidd bbl as the OEM Ruger receiver was? Not quite,...

Done

OK, all done.

Looks good enough from a distance.

Shortened stock 1" and reprofiled buttplate. Inletting could have been a bit more accurate but again, from a distance it's fine.

"Raked" the...

By the way, based on the pictures, can anyone tell me what wood my stock is made out of?

I assume is Beech or Birch, but have no idea. If it's Birch and I need to do some sort of pre-stain step,...

Yeah I think I've discovered that if were ever to make a stock from scratch, I'd just make the inlet way oversize and basic, fill it with JB Weld and just squish the receiver into it. No...

Quick update.

Sprung for the cheapo Ryobi sander to make a poorman's grinder.

Some careful scribing and 5 minutes with some 120 grit on the sander and buttplate reshape is pretty much done....

Fire Sight screw size

So, of course I managed to lose the elevation adjustment screw to my new Fire Sight set for the 10/22. The $20 set that can be purchased direct from Ruger.

Anyone know the screw size of that one?...

My amateur-hour thinking would be that nicks and scrapes along the side of the bullet would not matter since those surfaces get squished and deformed into the rifling anyway, so who cares? As long as...

You gotta scuff the plastic and provide some mechanical locking for the JB Weld. Not saying break out the dremel and chew it to shreds, just scrape it up a bit. And as others have said, clean it well...

Ha!

I was hitting the edges of that thing (the top screw in bit) with a dremel sanding drum, like 80 grit or something, trying to bevel off the inside edges, and it barely made a dent.

Stubborn rear sight removal

I had a rear sight that just would not come off. Kroil, heating, etc and nothing helped. I pounded on that thing until it actually started to mushroom a bit and the flip up portion busted off.

Yeah, if that turns out to be an issue on this stock (and I think it will) I'll probably just eliminate the grip altogether and go with a straight wrist.

Not an expert on the spike but do own a Titan.
