Re Re Model 1873 carbine tang bolt thread size
Posted by Tony Beck on Wednesday, 18 November 2020, at 6:43 p.m., in response to Re Model 1873 carbine tang bolt thread size, posted by Tom Trevor on Friday, 13 November 2020, at 12:15 p.m.
The tang screw is 0.219quot diameter 26TPI, which is essentially a 12-26. However, the thread angle is 55 degrees, like a Whitworth thread, not the SAE 60 degrees. That said, a modern 12-26 die works, but its hard to find one.
