    Thanks potashminer. I haven't been back to the site in a while and didn't expect I'd have more replies. So it's a confirmed Mixmaster, which doesn't bother me. I didn't see any receiver cracks,...

    Thanks, I'll look into it. The only markings I found on the stock was "2K" behind the trigger guard. I see what you're talking about though, I didn't get any pictures from that angle last weekend. ...

    Thanks, I believe you are on to something. There's an R on the bottom of the bolt that makes me think it's got at least 1 remington part. The bolt handle itself has an E, but the protrusion on the...

    Looks to me like the first couple sets of lands on the end of the screw are flattened. I don't know if that's the peening damage you were talking about but I'm going to try a new one from numrich. ...

    I didn't have to whack it, I just poked it with the punch. I don't think it was very much force and it should have already been away from the metal. Numrich has the screws for $2.50 and the cap for...

    I'm not familiar with the phrase "correctly dressed screwdriver". Does that just mean the biggest hollow ground screwdriver that fits in the slot?

    I bought Forster gauges. I can't find the actual lengths online, but they do claim to use SAAMI specs. The action didn't close completely on either the field or no-go, so it sounds like it's well...

    This is interesting. The stuff I read says all you need is the field gauge to determine if it's safe to shoot. They say the go and no-go gauges are more for armorers who are actually adjusting the...

    I'm sure this has been answered before, but my google fu is weak and I can't find it.

    I've got one that was never fired and I had to promise I wouldn't shoot it. So I'm afraid to disassemble it because I might put an idiot scratch on it.

    Thanks for the answer. I guess what I saw on my gun was an inspection mark too. I thought it was weird because it was on the underside of the slide, and I couldn't decide if it was a cut off 'F', a...

    I just want to make sure that's not a typo. Not to exceed 7% seems very low to me. I would expect you'd want 7% as a floor. I don't think I'd be worried about spending too much unless the cost of...
