    Complete gun, Dubiel Arms.
    Has the classic John Dubiel shadow line cheek piece but I have seen, personally, no other straight grip rifles.
    Seems to have an original hornet barrel, 3/4Ē dia, 27 1/4Ē, closer to .223Ē.

My techniques have changed and adapted from those conversations and from reading forums like this one. I donít always post my work or questions but I do read. I read as much information as I could for about 2 years before I chambered my first barrel (now 7yrs ago) so Iím sorry I donít post what Iím building all the time but I would like to say thanks you people like you and others that have helped me learn an invaluable skill.

    Jim, I think some of what has happened here was caused my conflict between posters. The my way is the only way attitudes instead of people realizing that there are different ways to get to the same result. Plus a lot of discussion has moved to Facebook for good or for bad. Easier medium to use than here, but it can certainly turn into as much of a time waster as you want to allow it.

    I guess, since we're here....... "In For A Penny".......

    Wayne Shaw, what is the significance of your avatar?

    And Mike.... could you provide an example of someone insisting on "only one way when there's in fact several ways"...???

    I see this differently, I see a forum where we've a sticky detailing the many ways folks chamber barrels for instance, where for the 20+ years of it's existence this forum has been a sounding board for all sorts of different views and methods.... I find your assertion that certain Rumpelstiltskins have been responsible for killing discussion to be derogatory. What are the subjects referred to by your term "conflicts"?

    Flying the American flag upside down is an officially recognized signal of distress. ß 8(a)The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.

    I used the same avatar when the halfrican was in office, and he's back again.

    Al, itís been so long ago that I donít remember who was involved or not or the details of even what was being discussed. There were a few people in some of the discussions who seemed to want to argue about anything. I know youíve seen those posts in the past. Iíve talked to people at matches who wouldnít post on these forums just because of that. You canít ever tell, they may not have ever posted anyway. Iím sure there were way more readers than there were posters. Iíve always considered the Gunsmithing forum or any forum as you read everything, share your methods and use what will work for you and discard the rest. What works with one persons equipment may not work with another persons equipment. I think most of the problem here is that people have gravitated to other venues. It doesnít help that it seems like every time I look at the forum we see another post where one of our friends and fellow competitors has left the range. Iím glad someone is posting those, but Iíd just as soon that our friends werenít ďleaving the rangeĒ.

    Thank You'se Wayne and Mike....

    Yeahh, it sucks when people die, always has, but I look at folks like Bill Brawand sharing his knowledge until his fingers stopped and I am awed and humbled.

    And I am THANKFUL to have experienced his viewpoint.

    And I'll never forget the time Frank L Murphy's wife came onto the forum, my fingers faltered a bit. But we who have actually DONE stuff owe it to future generations to pass it on. I hope not to stop posting here unless Elmer kicks me out 'the room and have started a youtube channel just for this reason, to document my own shtruggles warts-feathers-n-all............ I've known 'wayy too many "characters" about whom it's said "He should have written a book!" When the real message is, "I whish't that stuff woulda' been written down!"

    Children who grunt and squabble around the sand box whining that their wee "feelings are hurt" have always been present, will always be present, will NEVER grow up.......and do also serve a purpose.

    THANK YOU ELMER!!! For keeping this pertickler sandbox kempt

    Frank Murphy had great patience and the desire to enlighten those asking questions in a full and precise manner. Plus he had the knack to write extremely well. He was one of a kind.

    I remember Frank getting after folks who'd say "use the search button" instead of explaining something.

    Frank would say "if you're not willing to answer the same question over and over and over then don't get involved in the first place!"
