    Does the rifle have a heavier than standard barrel? Sometimes the rivets and steel reinforcing pieces need to go to carry say a Lithgow Heavy no4 barrel in 7.62.

    If you go the fibreglass route, use epoxy resin and a woven cloth and not polyester and chopstrand mat. The epoxy sticks to anything and you can almost be guaranteed of a very good bond. Polyester...

    I got a reamer custom ground for this a few years ago and built a rifle up for a guy. I ran a new heavy sporter 1:12" twist barrel and set it up in L42 style wood. I tested it with 155gn sierra SMKs...

    I had a batch made to .311 major bore diameter. It’s no drama for me to export to Canada either.
    These were done by Lothar Walther and shoot fantastic.

    Any good paint stripper will remove the finish on the stock. The finish is probably just old built up and oxidized linseed oil, and if it's varnish it will make short work of that too. Be careful...

    Hi Nijalninja, it would be hard to pickup a decent set of skills without some trade training. And either way is a long road. IMO you'd be best served to do a metal trade like fitting and turning or...

    Itís a bit late now, but opening the crack and getting glue intonation t is absolutely essential to this sort of repair. The dowel should reinforce the repair not be the repair. May I suggest that...

    They will go into either. I know the threads are not the same, but that is an SIA barrel, and it will go into no1 or a no4 without a drama. With that breeching collar it’s meant for no4.

    You’re missing the point Cinders. I’m not advocating butchering your rifles, and I’m not saying that stoning the cocking piece is something everyone should go out and do.

    Cocking Piece Nose/Sear Adjustment

    Hi Gents, a while ago I was doing a trigger job on a No4 or a No1 and I was trying to get the lowest safe trigger pull I could get, and the way I had been doing them to date (freehand on a stone)...

    Here's the .223 No4 I'm running at the moment. I love it and shoot it most weekends, it gives me around MOA accuracy and just doesn't skip a beat. The pictured group was just the first rounds fired...

    That rifles bedding is typical of the shoddy bridge-ups that are all too common. To properly sort it out it’s all got to go, and if the draws are loose, then they need to be patched out per Peter...

    You are going to do more harm than good messing about with this. The bedding looks fine and probably just needs some finessing and crush collar adjustment.
    That is a common look on your trigger...

    If it's keyholing rounds I'd be replacing the barrel, and bedding it while I was at it. If it's throwing the odd one sideways, the stability of the rest has got to be pretty marginal

    Armalon in the UK do a very nice no drill mount for no4. Head and shoulders above the ATI. Maybe have a look at that if you want to avoid drilling and tapping a nice rifle.

    Itís a very solid mount, as low a possible and the rear locking wedge is very strong and solid. On one that I fitted...

    I don’t particularly think the front pad is faulty, there’s just more fitting in the whole arrangement than might be expected, and the rear pad is made small in order to shim, as opposed to large in...

    This happens with all the Accumout and all the Sarco mounts and brackets. Mostly the pads from Fultons are better, but it depends a lot on the bracket you are mating it to too.
