Re: New Hi Standard

Sir, my sincere admiration for your excellent taste in .22s. Those lucky enough to have been blessed in acquiring an S&W 41 Bully Barrel with its 1:8 twist (stabilizes the Aguila 65 'fatties') before the esteem Ray retired experience rare firearms perfection. For those who wish to see how that magni...

Picking up on Hatchetjoe's perceptive idea of using your tube as a modified snorkel one way to do this is to machine each end cap threaded with lips 1.75" to fit into a 1.75" I.D. threaded tube.

YugoRPK,

Thank you for the great shots of your work,
especially the monocore picture.

Your statement " ...My 20th century machine work wasnt half bad."

Ecco, great work!!

Just got back from hinterland and

It is visual eye candy.

Your explanation is correct on Spiders.
They are also set up in front of lathe
for odd shaped barrel drilling.
