Re: Howdy from Montana...

Thanks again guys. I just got a 2" long 7/8 brass round rod plug from eBay for less than $8.00. I will center drill it and cut it at an angle to create a pair of wedges. I'll add a piece of all-thread, a 12" long 1/2" brass tube to act as a long spacer and protect the inside of the jacket. I'll then...

Re: WTB - Front sight/base

Will do, it looks like it might even be made from a couple of pennies! At least I can get a date if that is the case. I'll take pics then desolder it and clean up the barrel prior to attempting to remove the dents with my soon to be fabricated tool. I'm right in the middle of busy season and I'm bur...

Re: Barrel tools

A 25mm die handle works perfect for the barrel nut. I enlarged the hole to 11/16ths fit over the barrel nut. You can get these from eBay for around $6.00.

WTB - Front sight/base

Looking for a front sight and base to repair "field expedient fix" shotgun style sight soldered to jacket. :shock:
I can only imagine the story behind this modification. Looks like it's been there for about 75 years, so it is time to bring her back up to snuff.

Re: Howdy from Montana...

Thanks guys,
The only problem is that the dents are located where the jacket is threaded so I don't know if they would get damaged. I'm looking for a jacket right now and I'll be one the look out for the dent remover. I'll keep you updated. Thanks again.

Howdy from Montana...

I just wanted to say Hi to everyone and also thank you for having this board. I was just handed down a 1909 RAR, (model 8) and I will start restoring it this winter. It has a bit of rust, but I truly admire Browning's creation. I hope to take it to the woods next season, though if I do, I know in my...
