  1. This looks to be a minor job, but wanted to make sure I'm not getting in over my head. Is removal of the barrel easy? Does the nut every freeze, requiring a lot of force to remove? Will I need to reset headspace afterwards if I install a replacement? My second question involves replacing a broken stock bushing, the one with the rachet teeth. I'm having a devil of a time removing the small pins that secure the shoulder piece. The animated breakdown video found online show the pins being driven from inside the arm to out. Because of the clearance, there is no way I can get my punch at that angle. Can I punch the pins through in the opposite direction, starting from outside the arms and going inward?
  2. A while back I purchased a torch cut nose piece with the barrel and grip mount bar still installed with the hope of removing the barrel to get the grip mount. Unfortunately, Mr. Richardson no longer had his barrel removal tools available. I purchased the strap wrench sometimes seen on ebay, but even with a .022 brass shim, I was not able to snug the wrench sufficiently to remove the barrel. So I'm wondering if the members here could recommend someone who can remove the barrel and grip mount for me in a reasonable amount of time, hopefully within the next month or two. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  3. I have a new one for you... after firing my 1928AC this weekend, started cleaning it tonight and saw that the Cutts Compensator was a little loose. Most likely has been like that but since I had it torn apart, grabbed a punch to remove the Compensator. Note, I did not have this in a vice. I simply punched out the cross pin and with a cushioned set of pliars tried to remove the Cutts. It would not budge, so I put the front sight back on, and with the same padded pliers, held down the reciever on the edge of my table and started screwing off the cutts compensator, Once I got the cutts off, I noticed that the barrel had also come out about a 1/4 of an inch or more. So I got a piece of oak triangle to use to keep the front grip mount from hitting the fins and removed the barrel. The barrel threads do not look very well. there are no markings on the barrel, so I think it is an aftermarket West Hurley barrel. Taking photo's now. Will post them shortly. Needless to say, I do not feel qualified to put the barrel back on, nor do I want to put this barrel back on until someone takes a good look at the barrel threads. I do have some other parts kit barrels that I can choose from. If you used to own this 1928AC and had the barrel replaced or if you did it yourself, please chime in as I am always trying to document previous owners etc. It was a 1928AC I picked up from David Spiwak in 2014. AO152547x. Reciever and lower match, even has AO154547x under the barrel. All internals are AO marked. The gun runs great and is my favorite shooter. Semper Fi Sandman1957
