Looking for someone to take on project...
c/p from Yellow... In case anyone didnt see it there.
So I do have a small lathe, but to be honest... I'm barely 'there' on creating parts with it and to be honest, I dont have the time to dedicate to it for the time being. I can do OK on delrin and aluminum, but steel parts, not so much... not yet.
Here is what I have...
An M10 that I've converted to 9mm. It uses a Bulldog magazine and I've already converted over. Getting roughly 10-12 shots in the 130fpe range with it... quite nice.
But.... and here is what I need. I used the stock bolt and put an aluminum sleeve on it and cut an o ring groove. This was the limit of my 'machining' ability. It 'works', but I'm finding that I blow out o rings out of it. I think I should have extended my o ring groove just an RCH on it. But I'd like a steel bolt made for it. I can sent over the top end, breech and bolt for fitament. Will need a bolt, with a hold drilled and tapped for the bolt handle. Anyone willing to take this on?
Another project is yet another M10, this time converted to .25. If you are familiar with the M10's, they use a bushing with an internal o ring to seal the bolt, opposed to a TP port hole in the barrel. I have used an undersized o ring in the bushing and the stock bolt and it 'works', but it's not ideal. So options here would be a TP hole cut in the barrel and a proper lead in, and a bolt made to fit with an o ring or a proper groove cut in the bushing to use the stock bolt... dont care which as long as it's sealed proper.
Anyone here willing to take on these two projects, please hit me up.... robertsrc/at/charter/dot/net
Since no takers and had a rainy day today, decided to rework the sleeve I had on the bolt of the 9mm. It's functional now at least and not blowing the o ring out. Would still like a steel bolt at some point, but at least it's working.
Also looked back at my .25 build. I think some of the slugs I was using with grooves was killing my o rings a bit. Swapped to Rat Sniper slugs and all seemed fine. Again, would like a better setup at some point. Maybe another rainy day project!
