you got pics!

and a pm too!

Let me know if I can clarify it if the pics are not too clear.

Cranky ... can you see the circular machining mark above the chamber on the breech?

If you zoom in on the breach, you can see the little "ledge" or "shelf"

where EAA milled a small circular depression just a little larger then the rim of a 22.
before they milled it the breach was flat whereas now there is a shelf
that sticks rearward above the rim of the 22 case.
thus the headspace is increased by the depth of the milling.
I estimate that they milled about 0.100 inches although I will confirm
that the next time I completely tear it all the way down.
