I got reassembled and working another C & R 22 today,

a Stevens "Favorite" 1915 which is a lever action falling block single shot

I ebay'ed the replacement firing pin, which precipitated an internal disassembly to access the retaining pin, and a rust boil-out because it was apart already and needed it

new firing pin leaves good strong impression on snap cap test

Both of these rifles courtesy of my late FIL's arsenal
Very cool indeed. Thank you for resurrecting these arms and giving them a new life!

stumbled on this thread and see some barf magic connection, so i'll share something else i stumbled upon via youtube

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCM8...y3vOJuzdqCXh1Q

this should be Mark Novak;s "anvil" channel. he is a gunsmith, all self taught as i understand. he is affiliated with another youtube channel called C+Arsenal that does info videos and fires old weapons. anyway they send Mark stuff to repair and he makes videos of those repairs. i am not a firearms enthusiast per se, but i find them interesting as machines, and i just love watching someone that knows what they're doing, do what they do. i've gleaned some info from his gunsmithing videos i've applied to my own woodworking tinkering projects.

the vidoes tend to be a little long, but watching on 1.5 speed usually you don't miss anything.

fascinating stuff.

You may be surprised to learn that many firearm enthusiasts are there because of the combination "machinery" aspect of them, along with the history and development of them. Far and away from the applications and uses of firearms.

Kind like train fans that just marvel at these monsters moving about, and the machinations of it all.

yes some of my favorite youtube channels and inspiration and appreciation for the C & R firearms world :

Anvil (Mark Novack, master gunsmith)

spun off of :

C & Rsenal - historical / political development of specific models, WW 1 focused (Othias and Mae)

Forgotten Weapons (Ian = Gun Jesus meme, mostly due to his looks)

InRangeTV (Karl and Ian and guests)

All of these channels interact with one another, and all of the presenters come off as more of historians, and less of hysterical pro-gun nutcases

I fall into this category. Although I do love to shoot (no creatures, just paper), I have always been fascinated with the different mechanisms that have been created to achieve the same end.

The simplicity of a Glock with about 35 parts vs the complexity of something like CZ and HK hammer fired guns is fascinating to me.

If you haven't seen one, check out the original Remington 51, which has no threaded fasteners. An ex-coworker of mine gave me his some time ago to clean because he couldn't figure out how to take it down.

Back to making parts...

Very similar sentiments here.

Broomhandle Mauser C96, only threaded part is the grip screw.

super complicated short recoil action. how did they come up with that ?

Super Jelly 900ss. I had so much fun in my machining class at SJ state and your tools look way better than the dinosaurs I used then.

The wire EDM these are on is a relative dinosaur but it still holds tolerance. We have two Charmilles (GF Group) that can use wire as small as .0008" ō, and one Agie which goes as small as .002".

We use them in a number of ways. They can be handy for digging chips out of small diameter holes, scraping or clearing coolants or lubricants where no organic material (Q-tips etc) can remain, scraping chips out of machine areas etc. Some of the smaller parts we make that need to be inspected at 10x or higher magnification might need help with getting a small burr off in softer materials.

It's the kind of tool that if you have it can be invaluable.

I use them at home for scraping carbon from hard to reach areas in firearms, such as the hood in my CZ SP-01 or Target Sports. Of course, a soft touch is required. After Sunday I won't need to do this with the SP-01 as it is moving to another home.

I will ask around and see if anyone is interested in any, thank you.

Dental picks are a staple at gun shows. Usually one or two tables piled with them.

I use them for a ton of gun-related stuff. Also handy for other things around the house.

My grandson is totally into dinosaurs so we bought him these blocks of some substance that had dino bones in them. You dig out the bones and assemble the dino. the tools they gave were crappy so we used my gun cleaning picks and scrapers to do the job and it worked awesome.

Extractors

7 are finished, the other 4 will be done in the next few days. The machine is being cantankerous and not feeding the wire reliably.

Even though it pained me as a machinist not to deburr them, I didn't. Forgive me, but you need to do a little work!
