Re Model 1873 carbine tang bolt thread size

Tom, I took an original tang screw available for purchase from Al here or other parts dealers It screws easily fully into a 6 x 1.0 metric die although a bit loose. The original threads were 26 tpi. Since you have a lathe I assume you have tap and die sets as well just check the threads in the guard before purchasing anything. I suppose the quote marks will go caca but will try
