Re: Barrel shank dim.

You're certainly welcome. Couple of more things:

1. The book shows an early barrel with square end on tenon - you will have to turn a slight radius on the corner to fit a late receiver. I do not have that dimension, but it appears to be ABOUT an 0.125" radius. It could probably be SLIGHTLY larger than "correct" and still be fine - you just don't want to make it too sharp, which would bind almost as bad as if left square.

2. You probably understood this, but the unthreaded portion of the tenon appears to be the same (0.850") as the bottom of the threads themselves, as no other dimensions are given.

3. FWIW, standard barrel diameter, ahead of receiver is 1.000".
