What would I need to do? Drill out the rivets? Where do I get another if I need to replace?I would remove it and replace it if necessary as this will prevent you from changing calibers as different rounds use different guides, easier to do it now, good luck
So, that hanging down won't bother anything? Just cosmetic?wait a second, I took another look and what your talking about is not the bullet guide but the bracket. No real harm in having that welded on as I've seen it on quite a few guns, just go ahead and build it as is. (I think LUCKY13 had some new brackets made)
I'll try to fit it up tonight. No I just stuck the rivets in there, there not permanent yet.If you end up needing a new bracket, I do have them, at $40 shipped. I have seen Len's cams too and they are excellent. If you replace the bracket and need the Izzy modified version, then TARGSHOOT is your man. Mine are USGI spec.
To me, it doesn't look like the front end of the bracket is too low, but fitting your front 308 spacer and pin will prove that one way or the other. If you do need to replace the bracket, you will need to pull your trunnion back out. Looks like you just riveted it in, too!
