I have been working on this on and off for months now. I have reached a point where I don't believe I can continue. I have beat my rifle to hell trying to get this freaking OP Rod guide on here. Now I need the gun re-coated and I don't think that will happen before gun season opens. I'm at a total loss on how to continue. This guide will not go on any further as the barrel is too wide. I've sanded like a madman. This is a Springfield M1A Loaded with the medium-weight barrel. I did specify medium weight when I ordered the chassis and SHG. See pictures for a better idea of where I'm stuck. I contacted LRB a couple months ago about getting them to finish this fit and they had said the shipping would be ridiculous and they wouldn't recommend it. Any ideas would be appreciated.
