Fabricating A Brass 10/22 Receiver: And So It Begins



Log in to see fewer ads
The brass material for fabricating two 10/22 receivers arrived, as well as the set of drawings I bought on ebay. The material has the precise and proper dimensions without badly rounded corners sometimes seen on such material.

When I first opened the drawing tube, I was very disappointed, because the first drawing was the same as the one commonly seen on-line showing only external dimensions, but as I looked through all four drawings, I found the internal dimensions for a receiver with integral rails. That was exactly what I was needing. Interestingly, a drawing showing a weldable receiver was also included, along with complete bolt dimensions. There were also a few patent drawings, but, though interesting, they aren't going to help with this project. Maybe they just wanted people to think they were getting their money's worth, and four drawings might not.

The young man is coming over later this week, so, here we go!



I'll keep you posted.

TBR

Oh, yeah, this is going to be good! This will set a new standard for customized 10/22s.
