Below are a couple of gunsmith screw sets from one of Michael's fine sponsors, Midway USA.  Midway is sure enough a supporter of the shooting sports...as I digress.

Glad you made a deal on a trumpet that makes everyone happy.  I finally have my first grandchild who arrived this month...if he wants to play hopefully he'll be happy with my old clarinet....it's paid for!

The licorice stick! I like it.

<Pete’s dead you know>


Got the assortment screws.  Yep the one I thought, 6-48 3/16”. Put on the bracket and the mag locks in place.  Cool.  Now added the stock and….BAM. The mag doesn’t lock in.  The mag has a little rivet that sticks out on either side,  oh, I don’t know, about 5mils.  Keeps it from seating all the way through the bottom plate on the stock.  Time for Mr. Dremel.

Since I only wanted to take a very little off. I went with Mr. Sauvé instead of Mr Dremel.  A narrow flat file and I took 20mils off each side to insure an easy time.  The notch is hardly noticeable and if anyone did I'd explain it.

It's not a rare or collectable, so for my $125 asking it's not worth adding on shipping and FFL.  A good basic iron sight shooter.  I ran 5 CBs through it to test mag feeding, extraction and ejection.  All work fine.  don't know about accuracy.   don't care.

Here's a few pictures of it finished up.

Good job.  I like the pics. 

However....before you hand it over to someone you should see how it groups...I'm just sayin'....
