Go here and download the PowerPoint viewer. It's free and you'll be able to view PowerPoint presentations without actually having the full program.

And here's another option for people who don't have MS Word or PowerPoint; this version of Larry's presentation I tweaked a little and saved as a .pdf file:

Now let me guess... some of you don't have Adobe Reader right? Go here to get it free:

Thanks for the link to the Power-Point download. Works like a champ even though you have to go through a few hoops. :D

Open the file, screen asks for 25 character product code, hit continue, next screen asks again for key, hit no. screen now appears and works as it should.

Absolutely amazing! I've always wondered how that was done.

Great post on changing a barrel. Where did you purchase your reamer and handle, what is the product information. The reamers I see on the Brownell's or Midway web sight's don't seem to have the handle. Do you remove the screw holding the barrel bushing in place and insert the handle there? Once again, Great Post.

For a Garand you need what's called a Pull Through Reamer. Both Brownell's and Midway sell them.

Brownells sells just the reamers but you need the bushing and the extension rod to do the job.

The handle I'm using on the extension rod is just a regular adjustable tap handle you should be able to get at any hardware or tool store.

I'm not sure what you mean by a removing a screw holding on a barrel bushing???

The extension rod is inserted into the muzzle and the reamer is screwed on. Place the bushing on the reamer and apply light finger pressure on the back of the bolt against the back of the reamer/bushing (enough to just cut) as you turn the extension rod with the tap handle.

If I had the tools, barrel vise, receiver wrench etc., etc., I'd definitely try it myself.

Maybe someday I will, but for now, this time, I'll have to have someone do it for me.

But seems easy enough to do. Thanks for sharing.



FYI, I decided to get the action wrench and barrel vise and headspace go/no go gauges and so it myself.


Well, just wanted to update and say I bought the tools, action wrench and barrel vise and Clymer Go, No-Go and Field gauges and did it myself.

What a breeze. Thank you for sharing the how to Larry.

And I thank you again for taking my call and taking the time the other night. You're a great guy and an asset to this forum.

It would be great if there was a member or two who would rent out their equipment. I would definitely be willing to provide whatever info/deposit necessary to do this.
