Re: Cadet rifle receiver w/ extra holes

The barrel should bottom at about the center of the receiver. If there is no witness mark you can still set the barrel to receiver correctly if you pay close attention to the machining for the breech block clearance. IF the barrel will not line up to what you assume should be "o" try heating the receiver just enough to make it expand some. I set all my barrels this way & have never had a problem.

As to the holes, one can only guess. Some kind of sight arrangement??? Someone may have installed an off set sight but that seems unlikely.

If it some down to it you may want to replace the receiver to eliminate the holes & get one with a witness mark. If Al does not have one in this number range I will look to see what I have.

"Red" Daugherty is also a supplier of TD parts.

Email me a pic of the receiver.
