Chuck,
A good suggestion, especially since it is solid wood against the frame, with no hollow cavities because of parts sticking out into the forearm.  

A Deeley style latch would definitely be more fun though! And I think you know why I say this!  Shocked
Bob


I had to check and see what  Deely & Edge cocking lever looked like. Didn't know they look a lot like a Rem Hepburn. Would have opened up a whole new can of worms. Not sure this breech block could be converted to work that way. I have to live with what I have.

Sorry, didn't mean to confuse things.  We were talking about forearm attaching methods.  Deeley is one of them and I'm in the process of installing one. But that may be a story for another thread.  Here's an example of Deeley Style.

Lion, You are doing some fine work and learning a lot. Enjoy following your progress and learning something from your efforts.
Usually leave an index card gap between the receiver and forearm.

Bob, looking forward to the forearm latch story.
Chuck

Finally got around to silver soldering the first action. Unfortunately left a few pinholes. Torn between fixing them or just leaving them.

Lion, that is nice work you are doing. Interesting way to hang the fore arm using pins but agree that inletting the wood into the receiver sounds like a good option. What about fitting a hangar to the receiver about 8 inches long and using two screws about 4 inches apart to secure the forearm?
Bobw I would like to see a write up on installation of a Deely latch.
Cheers Richard

Shot one of the rifles today. Worked as planned but the trigger 
pull was a little much. Will have to experiment with spring first. If that doesn't work will have to build a double set. Not looking forward to that.

Grand slam; I don't torque the barrel to a given line, just snug it up so end up at a little different place each time, so it would be lined up differently each time. I know that's the lazy mans way but my barrel clamp works well for that.

Lion, about DST. Rodney sent to me 'rubber molded' cast parts for a system including a spring. The parts are rather precise and will require little work. You would really like them! And you need them!
