Are there any alternatives to a shim set from Fulton's? Some thing that could be purchased locally?
Thanks for the input Ted. Even my H&R M21 with a unitized gas cylinder required shims to make the gas cylinder lock go hand tight at 4 o-clock.Ted Brown said:Fulton's shims are the alternative...
The prefered method is to unitize the gas cylinder and barrel band by screwing them together (US ARMY) or welding (USMC).
Thanks for the link Turf! I am a member there and also have a couple of Rooster33 op rod spring guides.Turf said:If you don't mind ordering from Krazy Kanada, MysticPlayer on the Canadian Gun Nutz website sells sets of shims in various thicknesses. Here's the link.
You may have to join the forum but it is worth it as there is a wealth of info on M1A/M14 type rifles there. Knowledgeable guys like Skullboy, Hungry, Rooster33 and others know their stuff.
