dissassemble

Alright now I have the proper wrench but I'll be damned if I can loosen that barrel bolt. I am not sure this gun has been dissassembled since 1907. Any thoughts on loosening things up? thanx flanman

Re: Lines on an aperature rear sight

Thank you I will see what I can do for sighting it in with the wide and narrow opening and telescoping. Sounds like I might need several loooonnng days at the range and thus not be able to complete my honey do list :lol: flanman

Slowly I am learning what is what. I now know the swivel is not for a sling but is the forestock screw and the hole in the back of the receiver is not a bubba job but a missing aperature sight. Any ideas on where I get one and how I ensure it is period correct for a 1908 Model 8? flanman
