Re: Can you identify this Model 8 mount?

1st car I bought, '65 Lemans; stacked headlights, 8-) 326, 4sp Muncy, Holley 650 dbl pumper. :shock:
It would smoke some of the the day's mustangs, :lol: but not the Mopar. :oops:
Of course my wife had to own a '67 1/2 Firebird 350. :roll:

My Marlin 1895 45-70 (gone now) would never group that tight even w/ a 9x scope.

Snake, You might pull the bolt carrier, it's not hard after the rifle is taken down. Instructions here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/buster_charlie/sets/72157623271360342/detail/ :ugeek: Once the bolt carrier is out you can press the firing pin, it should move freely even if it has a return spring. ...

I definitely agree on the cold/heat method. Dry ice from a CO2 extinguisher I have used many times in industry. For heating try a "heat" gun from Harbor Freight, they never last forever, even the expensive ones. The H/G is just like a blow dryer only hotter. Plus they are safer for us than torches. ...

Then the bolt can rotate. If your spring is worn or the keys are worn this would allow the bolt to g...
