What AZDoug says is correct about the weldability fo 12L14 and similar steels- that’s likely why Glen has had his done so many times. There are specialty fillers that prove more successful than more traditional materials.


AZDoug’s skepticism is not unfounded- there are many interesting folks hiding behind the internet. Assuming you are for real, I would love to sit and talk shop some day. Meanwhile, welcome again.

No...my hunch...Machine Gun Bob of Keystone arms in PA. Could it be? Just pulled that out of the air...but think it is right. Come on now 28 scarab...don't keep us in suspense forever!

Just called Joe and spoke with the Missus...she said he did not work there so I must be wrong.

28scarab...part of the fun is watching everyone guess! biggrin.gif

Going back to the cracked receiver: Either weld using unobtainium rod or else wrap the receiver in Saskatchewan seal skin to hold it together when shooting. Both methods are equally effective.
