Spacer for Mann Rifle
This thread is trying to determine if there is enough interest in a spacer to replace the collar on the Mann Accuracy Device, when converting it into a rifle.

BubbaTheKid's friend Jim made a spacer for his rifle, but did that when Jim was in a slack period at work.

If there is enough interest in getting more made, Jim might be willing to make some more. However, custom work isn't cheap, so we also need to determine a price point that satisfies both the customer and the machinist.

If you are interested in a spacer (one or more), please post in this thread. Also indicate what price you would be willing to pay.

Once it appears that there is sufficient interest, we can see what Jim would be willing to make that number for.

I will start:

steelap - 2 spacers - $25 each.

I'm in for sure and 2 for $25 or 1 for $15 sounds like a good price point
Also I think it would be good to make these oversized by .001-.002" therefore they can be lapped for a perfect headspace.
Thanks Bubbathekid and Steelap
I'd be in for 2

Doesn't look like it. I'm not sure that your machinist can produce just four at a price that is fair to him and affordable to us.

Thanks for all the background work you put into checking this out.

I owe you a favor. If you need anything picked out at the South Store, or anything else, please don't hesitate to ask.

I agree thank both of y'all for your work on this

BubbaTheKid 07-17-2014 01:12 PM

Never hurts to ask. I'll letcha know what he says about making 4 or 5.

Guys, haven't forgotten about this, life just keeps getting in the way.

No problem at all take your time.
If anyone has measurements of the spacer ID, OD , and thickness and what headspace it gives at thickness. Or ID and thickness of the spacer that was taken off the rifle.
That would be great there's a few companies that make sleeve bearings in all kinds of sizes one of them might work
Thanks again

Had "Bigwood" stop by, handed off the collar, showed him the spacer installed on the 1903a3 receiver... He wanted to gage things with his gear versus my old calipers.
