Good and bad

I robbed the parts this morning. The bad news is the barrel indexis to almost 6 oclock by hand. The good news the bolt does not close with it in this position. I can take the barrel and reciever to my shop and roll the shoulder enough to make it tighten up and then finish it or I can put it aside for now and start looking for another barrel. What do you guys think I should do. I had to remove about .006 from the shoulder to make it index in the Fulton.

Barrel

I'm looking for a barrel for my new M25 receiver. Not sure what I'm going to put on this one.

If you decide you want to go with a non chrome lined barrel we can get together and you can use my chamber reamer. I can make some different spacers for it so you can get the headspace you want.
BTW I bought some rifle stubbs yesterday. One of them is for you Merry Christmas.

Rolled the shoulder

Well I finally went to the shop and rolled the shoulder on the barrel. It took longer to drive there and back than to do it.
Both pics are of the same barrel reciever; basically before and after. Pic on left is before pic on right is after.
I'm gonna say left is pretty close to 7 O clock which has been about right for me.

M25 Rear Lug Receiver

Since the thread Topic is M25 Pics from MemphisMachinists, and as stated from the other thread from MM:
http://m14tfl.com/upload/showthread.php?t=92153
Post #11

I finally got her home from the FFL Dealer here (12/11/12) and keeping the ball rolling in sharing photos about the M25 receiver from LRB. The Tentative plans are:

1) McMillan M2A Stock
The M2A stock is a pistol grip M1A with a vertically adjustable saddle type cheekpiece. It is designed to be used as a long-range weapon when equipped with a scope. The adjustable cheekpiece allows the shooter to see through the scope and still maintain a desirable cheek weld. It must be bedded and is not legal for NRA Service Rifle Competition.

2) New M25 Extended scope mount from LRB

3) Kreiger Heavy Barrel from the last group buy(82nd GB)

4)TRW Bolt or LRB Bolt (When Available), TRW Trigger Group, TRW Op Rod

5) and all the rest of the good fixin's for a great M14/M1A rifle build.






Whew......finally got to own a awesome piece of art work ever since the infectious M14 rifle bug bit me.GI2

Yours looks a lot like mine except they forgot a big hunk of steel in the back GI8. Have you noticed the hole in the leg on the side that has the mate for the trigger group spline. (pic 2) I seem to remember this being discussed here before, but I am not sure. That hole is not there on any of my other recievers. I do not see its purpose.
Anyway it sounds like you have great plans for her and she will have a cousin in Tenn. Sometime next year I want to get a real nice stock for mine and eventually a good scope. For now I will be happy to get her to the range. I thought I would build it this weekend, but my honey-do list got in the way.
Great PIcs thanks for posting!

The hole you refer to is used as a datum, representing a line that intersects perpindicular to the bore line center of the receiver ring.

Almost all the references for the receiver are based on a cylindrical system, or rectangular and square, and almost every hole is used as a datum of sorts for getting home to one measurement or another...ever heard the old saying, You can't get there from here ? I have spent untold 100's of hours, just finding some measurements...which BTW have nothing notated, and have to be derived from somewhere else....in every case, from a datum, and then much adding and subtracting, almost as if the government engineers were writing code.

Interestingly enough, it is also exactly, or should be, .40 from the bottom of the receiver legs, and .40 from the bottom of the receiver side rails forward of legs at lowest point, to the center of the hole. It is also a reference datum to find the height of the inside of the legs where the first step down occurs for inside width, and at that point, begins forming the support for and the making of the bridge, which is half the thickness of the overall receiver. That measurement should be .843 and half the receiver should be .842 - .003

Also used to find the forward most line of the curve, or apex for the trigger group locking location where the ears catch it.

I have also heard of them using it to hang in the various vats, although I cannot confirm or back this up.

Made a little progress

Well I tightened the barrel into the reciever. Couldn't find my bar and rod so I used a level ( don't tell 82nd). This barrel did the same thing in the Fulton I took it out of. With the sights lined up the feed ramps don't line up. Any way I put the bolt stop and the connector link in. The TRW OP rod that I had been using does not want to go in. It was snug in the Fulton.I have a SA OP rod in it for now. Funny thing I had tried to use this OP rod before,in another build, but it was dragging. I lapped the bolt and still have some room to ream in the chamber, but I haven't done it yet. I am thinking about loosening the barrel just a tad. I will make my mind up about that when I find my bar and beam.
Thanks for the info on that hole Mr. Ripsaw.
