    Its 11 dreg day --

    First -- fill the barrel with shaving cream - Barbasol is best -- anything my Wifey uses on her legs is OK with me --

    Apply cutting oil - not WD-40 --

    Twist to desired depth --



    ( I gotta get me one of those 1/4 X 20 female too stick it into your drill motor thingys -- )

    Next a little #0000 steel wool --



    Dremel pad with white cutting rouge then mothers alum. polish --



    Flush out shaving cream -- then change out any stored crap in your stock butt --



    Hard as rocks - but 20 seconds in the magical mystery food warmer softens them right up --

    Then refill --

    Its "Loose Screw Friday"

    It turns out -- as accurate as this is / was ---- the barrel screws were just past hand tight & the cut for the ejector hook was just a wee-bit off -- after 100 or so rounds I get the occasional stove pipe --

    Taking a Q-tip - I saturated it with carburetor cleaner and screwed in into the holes -- "Oh - look" all kinds of crap in the threads -- Then pulling it out ---- it was cleaner --

    So I did it again -- but cutting the Q-tip in 1/2 -- when there was enough to grab inside the action - I pulled it through -- 3 times W/ fresh tips -- nice clean threads --

    This is what the screws looked like



    Cleaned & Loctited --



    A little Ricekila tip -- after polishing the crap out of the internals -- re-assemble dry -- no oil -- otherwise they're impossible to get a good grip on --

    When I test fitted yesterday - I coated everything with a black magic marker & noted the rub marks -- so the back side of the trigger where it touches the return plunger got a little polishing & the bolt lock plate just got some counter top rubbing with #600 emery just to smooth-en it up --



    Some time soon I'll cut a finishing nail for a slave pin for the sear -- and get myself a 9/16th ball end alen wrench -- smacking the barrel every 3/4 turn is just annoying -- :

    Keep your work area clean !

    On the little table I mounted my drill press & vice -- I had a wad of #0000 near the back of the vice -- after working on a chunk of wood -- I noticed it wasn't turning as free as it should --- and the steel wool was missing ?

    Yep --



    I had to disassemble 1/2 the vice to get it offa the threaded rod --

    Keep your work area clean !

    When these things cycle -- the bolt slams back and resets the hammer -- Not a real smooth transition ?

    So the black line is about .40 thick --



    I'd like a nice curvy / polish ramp to re-set the hammer -- 10 minutes on the belt sander & 20 minutes of polishing --

    ( Its flipped over )

    Once every 100 rounds or so - the hollow nosed jams a little bit -- factory front ramp -- Curved but not ramp-ish --



    A little filing w/ the curved file --





    ( I rounded out that bump on the right )

    And polished --



    As my plastic lip ones wear out -- I'll replace with steel ones --

    Good thing I don't have any 25 rd. ones to worry about --

    My question is, did you ever look into the Kidd parts for your 10/22 yet? They are definitely worth it. I bought the charging handle with springs, bolt buffer, firing pin, and extractor for each of mine. Money very well spent. Yes, you did nice work!

    Yes I did -- and they look great -- overall -- just a wee-bit pricey -- I get my jollies on adjusting / making my own parts -- unless I cant -- a Kidd receiver is on my Lotto list --

    Example --

    Kidd's cheapest barrel is $185 -- ( plus tax & shipping - about $210. to my door ) & its ultra lightweight and fluted -- I don't like flute-ness and in this case weight isn't a concern -- their plain black is $200 --

    I ordered one of these last night --

    https://www.midwayusa.com/product/30...-twist-18-blue

    To my door $111. --- that leaves me with $99.-ish to spend on women & song --

    I like the Kidd parts that make the gun go bang. As far as barrels go, any good one should serve you well.
