Attached are photos of my progress to date. The barrel pack is largely done. The pack consists of (7) Ruger 10-22 barrels, (1) Winchester barrel, (2) Sears barrels and (2) Springfield barrels. The barrels are retained using the locking wedge method developed by cutter. I made 2 extra barrels giving me a 0-9 and X & Y barrel.
The barrels are headspaced, chambered and lapped flush to the Rear Barrel Plate. Headspace measures between .044 and .045 (minimum headspace is .043). Every barrel is interchangable into any location and the headspace remaings in tolerance (.043 to .046).
The Front Bow is next up. The programs are loaded to cut a couple of different styles to see which one is most pleasing. I have ordered 5/16" x 1/2" x 5/32" ball bearings and 5/16" x 1/2" x 5/16" needle bearings to try in addition to a bronze bushing to see which one runs the smoothest.
I figure that I have a couple of years to go.
