Re Replacing breechblock

Sorry for my lack of knowledge. The diagram I have does not show receiver as a part. I am sure you are correct about the gunsmith. I took in the receiver and barrel and was pleased that he at least recognized it as a trapdoor springfield. PThe problem is the barrel doesnt screw all the way into the receiver. I would guess the receiver has straight threads and the barrel has a taper to the threads or tenons. Perhaps that is why the cracked receiver had the problem.
