Can you post how to use the pipe cutter. I have used lapriester's directions on how to install a barrel. Two years ago I put a new SA CMP barrel on my CMP Rec. using lapriester's directions and she came out great!

I would love to hear, and or see, how to use the pipe cutter.

Do you use it to move metal toward the Rec for proper index?

Great post. I have heard of this method for a long time but could never figure out what to use as the third roller. Thanks Sparx!

Good job, I made mine a couple years ago, had a machinist at work round off a cutting wheel for mine. Same result.

Thanks, I got all I needed at HF and a local HW store up here in Oregon. I'll be taking it home to CA for assembly when I leave.

Thanks again,

Larry

Thumbs up

Jim,

You should copy and paste your original post into the How To Forum and have Ghost sticky it. It's valuable and very useful info for anyone who runs into the problem of an over indexing barrel on both a Garand and 1903A3.

I converted a pipe cutter to "squeeze" the barrels to fit about 20 years ago, but did not publicize it. Sparks' description covers it all. A further suggestion: go to a plumbing supply house (bring your cutter) & ask for Rigid pipe cutter roller set. They are 1 inch in diameter, and 3/4 inch wide. You might have to grind the side of the roller down to 5/8 to fit it in. (Rigid does not make a roller to fit into the cutter blade space, for only screwballs like us put in a 3rd. roller.) After that, you're all set.
You can check the flea markets & junk shops for used pipe cutters. The rigid 2 inch cutter costs $145 new, & I found one at a flea market for $10.

No. It is so simple, same motion as cutting a piece of pipe with a tubing cutter, but nothing is cut of course.
