    Winding down for the evening (more radiation treatments the next three weeks) but figured it would be good to get ready for tomorrow afternoon. Marlin barrel is ready to go.

    Beretta receiver has the anti-seize in it and times up perfect before tightening.

    Sign of a well made barrel when it comes around to 7:00 ish. Some barrels time at 8-9:00 so that means torquing then stupid to get them to fit right or finding a machine shop that can cut a couple of thou off the barrel face. (yes I am talking about you Citadel barrels)

    Wrench is on and IMG_0411.jpg

    Ok, new life in the photo capture device.The gas cylinder/barrel is locked in at - .10
    IMG_0417.jpg

    The receiver times on at +11.10
    IMG_0415.jpg

    So we squeak this barrel on till the numbers are the same.(I have been told that 1-2 degrees one way or the other was acceptable but if one can get it bang on, why not.)

    NOW! If you folks want to see what a quality, USGI contract barrel looks like, look no further. This Marlin has just been tightened on perfect and what happens next?

    Go gauge has the bolt drop down slick as a whistle.

    Next, the No-Go gauge.

    The bolt does not drop all the way down. Perfect.

    No finish reaming needed. Plug n' play before that term was ever imagined. You can bet that the average armourer loved these things.

    That's enough for a bit right now. One of the toilets is causing some grief and needs to be looked at. Here we are right now. Two barreled receivers with bolts.

    ...and while looking for rifle stocks, I found this. Another reason to try and de-clutter my work area, Another barreled receiver. Will dig out a bolt and gas cylinder for it as well and check the particulars. This just may be a trifecta of fun in time for the holiday season.

    Time for some wet work. If one has not enjoyed hours of rubbing quality, exotic oil on their wood, they is missing out on some serious therapeutic time. This is my 'go to' oil. For the first few applications I have it thinned with pure citrus solvent 50/50. It makes a nice primer and if working with new wood, it raises the grain for finish sanding.

    This is the can with the thinned oil and the solvent beside it. I have a much larger can of the citrus solvent in the work area. It can be used as a household cleaner, thinner that has no VOC's, a scent for candles (smells like oranges) and is likely food grade if you decide to make a few hundred thousand orange muffins .

    The pure tung oil. If it was good enough for the Great Wall of China, it should work fine for a lowly gunstock. Tung oil was the preferred finish on early USGI Garands until the Japanese effectively cut off supplies to the Americans. I pick this up at Lee Valley Tools.

    It gets applied by hand as the warmth seems to help with the absorption into the stock parts. It washes off with soap and water(or citrus solvent)and no need to worry about any rags spontaneously combusting. A little goes along way so do not splash it on like cheap cologne. It will take more than a couple of coats over a period of days , even weeks but the results are excellent for what we desire here.
