I guess that is the end of the line. Mine is in Dallas right now. Should be here either tomorrow or Wednesday.

These are coming directly from CMP. Does anyone how many CMP still has?

Just got mine in the mail today. Started a separate thread for it. I am very happy with mine and can't wait to get her shooting again!

Resurrecting this older thread about restoring Drill Rifles to operable condition. I noticed a lot of discussion about having trouble removing the barrel from the receiver and how some used a table vise and pipe wrench.

The proper tool for that job is the one sold by CMP. It involves a clamp for the barrel which is bolted to a solid table and a very heavy and long handled "vice" wrench which is machined to hold the 1903/A3 receiver.

Grinding down the barrel weld forward of the receiver is a must, but when sufficiently removed, unscrewing the receiver from the barrel is fairly easy with the proper tool. Installing the new barrel is just as easy with these tools.

Make note of the match marks on the original barrel and receiver so that you can properly align the new barrel when installing it.

I think everybody knows this, but they're just cheap.

"but they're just ..."

"frugal and resourceful" has a nicer ring to it...
