Receiver Drilling Jig - Brownell's



Log in to see fewer ads
Okay ladies and gentlemen:

I was so moved by the premise of this pay it forward, that I wanted to do something a little different.

I want to add something perpetual - "living" if you will. As soon as someone chimes in that they want it, I will purchase and donate the Brownell's Receiver Drilling Jig.
Accurately Locates The Barrel Cleaning Hole On 10/22 Receivers - Permits barrel cleaning from the rear without removing the barrel; eliminates accuracy-destroying cleaning rod wear caused by cleaning from the muzzle. Locates the correct spot at the rear of 10/22 receivers for drilling a small hole to allow the cleaning rod to pass through. (Picture and ad copy from Brownell's)

I will pay for the part and for the initial round of shipping, with the following provisos:
1) That each person agrees to keep it only long enough to accomplish the task at hand - I would think a week to ten days should be sufficient.
2) That each user, immediately upon completing the drilling of their own receiver(s), put it back on Pay It Forward and pay for the shipping to the next recipient.
3) That the first user start a thread and all subsequent users post, maybe even with photos and comments to allow all to see just how far this thing might go.

I personally think this will be a really neat journey around the membership with an item that can be very helpful to those of us who do not have access to some of the high-tech tools that many here do.

There it is - Speak up......

John

Receiver Drilling Jig - Brownell's



I purchased and donated one of these to the "Pay It Forward" thread in the Anything 10-22 Forum, last week. https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums...463094&page=11 (Post#162)

I am starting this thread so as to have a place for users to post their experiences, pictures, etc., as this makes its way around the site. This way it will cause less traffic and confusion on the actual PIF thread.

It has been suggested that maybe a queue could be started here, for those who are interested in receiving the jig in the future. I will be adding a post that will be easy to copy and paste in order to keep things on track. Hope this helps,

John

I thought it would be interesting to see where this part stops on its journey - thought others might find it interesting, too. I respectfully request that when the users place their name into the list, they follow it with a location - as detailed or generic as you wish.

The list of interested parties that will be contacted by the current user of the tool, immediately upon completion of their respective receivers:

Started the journey at Brownell's - Montezuma, Iowa - Ordered 11/14/2012

1. JohnAl (Alabama) Arrived 11/19/2012
2. kjhilsinger
3. Kraaash (Michigan)
4. rdhood

Updating the list with my location. If you are near 30534 (Dawson/Lumpkin Counties) when the jig gets to me, give me a yell and you can drill your receiver, too!

Have I told you lately that you have quite a voluminous vocabulary?

Sincere thanks for the compliment - you guys are so nice, it is contagious.

Best regards,

John

I totally agree!!!! It is so neat to be able to give a present that has the ability to please so many. Call me corny, but it makes me feel good to do some little something.

Got it today. I'll get my two rifles done A.S.A.P. and be ready to put it back on the road.

Kjhilsinger, PM me your snail mail address so I will have it on hand when I'm done.

Good idea to have the jig available at an Appleseed event. I would be happy to help out if timing works out.

I live close but probably too far to drive...I live in the FAR north end of PHX. I could use it for my wife's rifle so I will put my name on the list

Mr Crowley-
Your generosity is really appreciated. I can't wait to meet you in person and send some rounds downrange
