    Is that going to hold it's size enough to do a chamber ream? Does it shrink when cooling?

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle.

    Die maker wrote me that Cerrosafe expands with age. So, I will ask him if I can take the measurements he wants right after making the casting.

    They were in your mass already? Would make sense after all your searching.

    I made a copy of Kern's book and found the diagram there. Yes, just 3 feet from my computer. Randy

    Good Afternoon All,

    With help from Scott (Georgia), Brian (Manitoba), Mathew (Florida), Matt (Baltimore), plus many online colleagues, the T-Gewher goes to the range, with reloaded ammunition, in two weeks. Thank you all! Randy

    So...consider doing a vid of the firing process. We don't NEED to see targets but just watching one touch off would be nice...

    That was a long trip. Well worth seeing. No, it wouldn't be so bad. I had the chance to shoot a Boys rifle back in the '80s and it was about the same. The heavy mass absorbs most of the recoil.
