Tapping the action, had to get a little creative as the tap handles the school has don't go big enough and I preached about NOT using a single wrench...

I will have the students do the Niedner firing pin conversion (they've all chose to make 45-70's) but I needed a spare for a 22rf, so another quick demo making an original.

What an extremely valuable life lesson you are providing these young adults if they should end up being in gunsmithing, rifle building or a completly different choice in life.

Trying to stay ahead of the students. They have all their parts, so now the fitting begins.

If I follow you, you are bushing the block with the 1/2 - 20 set screw. (not making part of the Mann- Niedner firing pin )

This and GT's is a great set of pictures to follow along. They really help someone get an idea of the pro's way to proceed with a casting kit. 
Thanks for taking the time to post them.

This is the drawing of the correct Mann-Niedner firing pin conversion as was shared to me by Mr. Petrov and one who extensively researched†all of Niedner's work. I hope this might somehow be helpful to this group as I noticed it was also being being brought up in another discussion on this site.
