Re: First time rifle build suggestions
For tools. I did mine with nothing fancy.
Small hand block plane.
1 metal file.
2 wood files.
1 small scraper. Bought at dixons.
About 5 or 6 chisels. 3/8 in down to 1/8 in wide. Several were bent to get in some tight areas.
Battery powered drill.
2 chisels for cutting dovetails.
1 60 degree file made safe on 1 side for dovetails.
Tools are not a major expense to do this.
Your patience at each step in the process is. My best work nobody will ever see on my rifle. It's the barrel lugs. Took my time and went well.
When you start, plan each step.
Then think about it. Re measure to check and if it matches go.
It will be your pride and joy.
I love my rifle. It's mine, mistakes and all. Wouldn't trade it or sell it for anything. Not even a Martin made lehigh.
Has my tears, sweat,and blood in her. Yours will to.
Patience is the key.
