Hi SA1941,

Looks like you have a really nice stock there! I'm sure all of us will be watching for your posts on your first range visit.

Like I said in past posts. As a young guy, I saw a rifle & two pistols come apart. Don't remember the type of bolt action it was, but parts were whizzing by the guys on the line! The shooter lost a eye!
It was a nice looking rifle, cracked action or bad ammo? No idea!

As a responsible old gun guy now! I wrapped the action in a old blanket & a carpet floor mat. The first 5 shots were done that way, took more time to unwrap & re wrap the action then clean it.

Down on one knee behind the rifle, held the butt plate with one hand & pulled the trigger with the hooked end of a metal coat hanger!
I was down the empty far end of the range, with the range officer aware of what I was doing.

Things only have to go badly ONCE, to change some ones life forever!

Enjoy your project,
broom

Finally! Range report day! Shot 30 rounds through the old girl and here are the results. Very, very satisfied for one. Lockup is tight, and using Federal 150 gr loads, it wasn't too awful on recoil. All shooting took place from 40 yards. After the first couple of mags, the rear sight wound up falling off when I jacked in a fresh round (I need to peen it). The rest of the time, I had it shoved over to the left (the only spot it would stay put). So for the rest of the time I had to compensate for it. Considering that I am very pleased with the results, and once I get the rear sight fixed it will be even better. It gives me a great deal of satisfaction to have revived on of these old Warhorses and give her new life. I can tell I am going to have many years of great shooting with her! Here are the best target pics from today, and I have to admit, I am a lousy shot. Thanks everyone for following this thread for so long! I can't believe it kept going for so long myself. Thanks also for the support!

By the way Broom and Carriec, I followed yall's advice on breaking in the barrel. Thanks for the help there too!

Hi Sean,

Nice first attempt!
READ up on the correct way to tighten up the rear sight. IF it's bad a new rear sight is low cost!

I did a firearm repair the WRONG way once!
Now I read as much about my problem, BEFORE I pick up a tool!

Simply amazing how well things usually go now!

Be SAFE & ENJOY,
broom

Might want to give this a read about mounting the rear sight and staking....

You are welcome!
This post helped me get a new rear sight mounted on a CMP SC 03A3 that was a bit cockeyed....

Finally finished my A4 build last night. I reamed the chamber and got the scope mounted. I just have some minor stock fitting to finish and she'll be ready for some load devlopment.
