Re: Are Model 8s actually marked as such??

Well I guess the 1911 date (SN 247xx) is an early one also. The SN 247xx must have been returned to the factory for repair because the barrel jacket assy is marked "WRR3". It looks like it was repaired November 1946. I keep looking for Model 8s and Model 14s in 30 Rem because I converted hundreds of...

(pre model 8) The one in the barrel shroud/jacket was cracked/broken and the one I got from Numrich was the same ID as the broken ...

Re: New member from Texas

Thanks for the welcome. I made barrel nut tool out of an old steel spacer I found. The ID is 18mm and the stud is M6 x 1.00mm with a point ground on the end. Works well for a half an hours work.
