Re: Jukar Rifle in .45 Parts?
Ok... I got some pics of the lock, stock, and barrel! Now I know a few of you are going to tell me that the main spring is off of the sear... I did this to get the hammer off to re "brown" it. I also cleaned the lock plate off. The insides are all gummy with saw dust and old dry oil... the hammer will only lock at the half cocked position, its that dirty. The Flitz cleaned off the "color case hardening" look.. oops!
Any way... the purpose of the pics is for you guys to tell me what this CVA Jukar rifle is missing... I know I don't have the Furrels (barrels) for the ram rod..I am going to turn some from solid brass on my lathe. I just need to know if there is something missing that holds them in place.. Or do I attach them straight to the stock?
Now.. the stock is still in its natural wood state.. How was the wood treated back in the day? Oiled, stained, waxed? What's the secret? I am also redoing the barrel... I steel wooled the critter off, cleaning the heavy rust off... and want to re-rust (blue) brown the barrel. How do I get the percussion cap "thinggy" out of the side of the barrel? I'd assume its threaded into the barrel. I just don't want to force it and bugger this project!
You can't prevent the inevitable.. only alter its time span!
