Default Gas cylinder gauges

Sold out as of 6-8-11
Thanks.

Each set has 3 gauges .528+,.530+ and .532-
.528+ being the minimum and .532- being max tolerance. These are hardnened to rockwell 60-62 so if you drop them they will still be ok. Each set is still sealed in factory packaging and each pin has the size marked on it.
Sets are now $18 each starting with post #97 due to a postal rate increase April 15th.


Instructions are
All gauge pins slide in from the gas lock screw end. See picture #3. Make sure the gas cylinder is clean prior to gauging, but only dry clean the cylinder. Any solvents/cleaners used will burn and carbonize? when shooting the rifle. Hence fouling the cylinder.
You do not have to remove the gas cylinder to gauge it. But you must pull back the OP rod handle, cocking the rifle to gauge it to get the OP rod button/piston out of the way.
The .528+ gauge Will slide in all the way with most used cylinders, this is normal and is the size for a new cylinder. If the .528+ gauge doesn't slide in check for obstructions,burs, carbon buildup ect.
Next use the .530+ gauge this one should slide in 1" or less but not all the way. Cylinder is good in this case. If the .530+ gauge does slide in all the way the cylinder is worn but will be good if the .532- gauge doesn't slide all the way in.
If the .532- gauge slides all the way in the cylinder is worn past tolerance and should be replaced.
All my gas cylinders, even the ones that look worn passed the .530+ gauge test.
Since these sets are steel for storage purposes it would be a good idea to lightly coat the gage with oil to prevent rust/oxidation.

Hope this helps.
