Thumbs up

Any way to hold spring cover open from inside and remove the bore light I need a good look at the radius that was machined on an angle for cartridges to insert.Looks larger than my 32.

Also need a good close up on left side showing the carrier detent hole /slot before it lifts up into it.

I appreciate all the help.

OK the extra images of the loading port I now know what to do there ,its a lot larger milled radius to allow for larger 38 and 44 cartridges.

There is a slot on the left inside receiver wall right below the cartridge guide ,before the carrier lifts up If I had a good pic of that detail I would be good to go.

Thanks again

I think I figured out what you want. It's what stops the lifter/follower when it flips up. Tough to get a shot of it...

Added a couple more and a quick video. Same folder as before.

Thanks Glashaus and 30caliber ,that should be all I need .Looks like the detent is actually two different radius cuts on left wall.I should be able to install carrier and dykem blue wall of receiver and work carrier back and forth to mark path and use pictures to scale location .

1- open follower mag tube opening
2 - mill larger radius entry port
3 - mill radius slots for carrier detent

Thanks from Glashaus

I looked at taking some measurements, but I think it'd be pointless. At the top, the lifter actually stops against the buttom of the ctg guide. The detent just holds it there. So if you err in cutting that slot, keep it on the high side and shallow.

The low detent is such that the follower is flush with the loading port. Not sure what the actual mechanical stop is though.

Thanks from IRON WORKER

OK thanks , looks also that they used a beveled edge cutter maybe a 60 or 45 degree to produce the two cuts . I have the 44wcf carrier which I will install and the detent should mark the arc of the carrier so the locations of cut can be made.

Completed the conversion from 32WCF to 38WCF/44WCF used a small homemade 3/8 boring bar and tool steel bit to reach through follower opening to machine the scallop for the loading port.
Very hard to access ,had to relieve the center of bar to 1/4'' o.d. to keep from hitting opening. Made muliple passes extending tool until correct radius and depth.



Enlarged follower opening to large cal single point bored with same small bar.


Used same bar with a double sided 45 degree tool steel to make detent grooves. Scored bluing with 44 carrier to mark path and measured from top to locate.


Few parts I need still and this will become a 38 WCF short rifle with full octagon barrel and shotgun buttplate.Thanks again for pictures.

Thanks from Glashaus

Picked up a 38 WCF ocatagon barrel a while back someone had hacksawed to 21 1/2 '' right in front of mag hanger. Got it cheap and was perfect for my short rifle build . I band sawed it right on 20 1/32'' long and faced /crowned muzzle followed by flat polish across face like WRA did.

Recut a 3/8 '' dovetail at correct 1'' location and machined the radial dovetail mag tube hanger like original at correct full mag location. Barrel has a plum brown patina which I plan to leave ,I'll just use some rust brown solution to darken fresh mill cuts.




Thanks from Glashaus

I've been following this thread since you started. Nice job on that piece Iron Worker. The barrel looks fantastic. I've always liked octagon barrels, gives the old lever-actions a touch of class. Can't wait to see it when your done. It's going to look sweet!!! Congratulations. -Lloyd

Thanks from IRON WORKER
