there is a company that rents reamers for most cals, 60.00 for 10 days, brownells sells a kit for 180.00. I just installed a 12 51 barrel in my mixer im muilding, HS perfect and clocked up after 1 torque and retorque, noted in wrapper te was1...long headspace from factory. Install and ck HS...you may luck out. If you do ream buy the brownells set and resell on cmp m1 site....someone listed a 1 time used last week it lasted 7 min before it was sold....130.00 USAF2
I have been doing some research and looking around and found Manson and Clymer. On the Brownell's site, their was a comment left about the Clymer reamers chattering. And the Manson reamer is listed for $100. The Clymer reamer is $89.95. I don't know which one to get. These are not pull through reamers. Is one better than the other?
clymers pull through reamer unless you have a engine lathe. A pull through "kit" uses a shaft you pull the reamer head with ...as it cuts the bolt will begin to cam into battery...stop BEFORE the cam lug touches the rceiver rail.USAF2
