Yep...one more to go for 16. One for each man in my home defense platoon!!!!!!! I want my house to look like the USS Missouri with so many barrels hanging out the windows. The USS Hammonje.

Come and get 'em BLUE HATS!!!!!!!

All kidding aside...the fun part remains. Some serious trigger time and tweaking to get the most accuracy out of them. These, unfortunately, will have to get in line.

Thanks from sjstill

Nice builds. What tools do you use to properly index the barrels?

Thanks from hammonje

To index my barrels, I originally used magnetic angle finders and the receiver flat behind the rear sight and the top of the flash hider sight dovetail. Not the best procedure, but it does work. Tends to under index the barrels in my hands.

On Art's (nf1e), 82nd AB, and others suggestions I bought the Badger Ordnance Receiver/Barrel Timing Gages from Brownell's together with a Harbor Freight Digital Angle Finder. I now get my indexing down to less than 0.3 degrees or the error of the digital angle finder. I also check to confirm with a Starrett 135A bubble level, so I get it down to basically 0.1 degree of variance. The Starrett bubble level is my final confirmation and I get it matched perfectly. This was a suggestion and method employed by Lapriester on the CMP Forum. I got this check from him.

Then it's time to finish ream or check headspace if using USGI chrome-lined barrel as these are. I finish ream using .308 Win Manson reamers and pull through with a Starrett tap handle.

I hope my instructions were clear and comprehensible.

Here ya go!

The guns are not normally in the upright (ready to fire) position but at the time I took the picture, they were filming Pear Harbor, the movie.

Good Luck!

I miss my parts. Lol. The funny thing is I saw my old GTO on Craigslist this week. I wonder if I check out some porn sites maybe an old girlfriend or two will show up.
