Well it went from some work to a lot more work.. Today I tried to fit the new barrel to my 2 frames. No go on either one.
So I have to go to Graybeards and see what I have to do to fit the new barrel.
Just like outside. First it rains then it snows. Mama meea!
If it's too tight you're in business, it's a matter of stoning the lug cut-out until the barrel will clear the breech face just enough to close . If it closes all the way but doesn't latch fully you work the barrel lock tab with soot and a stone. If it's too loose, some people shim the pin, but I'm not a huge fan of that myself.
I have already been on Graybeards and been reading the FAQ's So as soon as I can gather the tools needed I start stoning the lug. Ian yes I have the problem of not being able to close the barrel fully into the frame.
