Every time I tried to reinstall the trigger group into the reciever, I had a Dickens of a time. The trigger group, according to my dial caliper, is .010"-.015" wider than the machined groove in the recie er. So I got the machinist bluing out and applied it to the trigger assy., and hand filled the trigger group until it smoothly slides into the reciever with little effort clear across the assy.
Has anyone else done this job before?
I applied bluing when I was done, and you can"t even tell the job was done.
I'm wondering if I may see an increase in accuracy from this.

Looking foreword to a range report. Seems to me relieving stress should at least let you have more repeat-ability from temp changes.

My posting abilities haven't been developed as you can see, lol.
This is my first post in this site.
I now have a .001" interference fit. I figure going too far the other way would be bad too.
Next project: applying the sear adjustments I read in the earlier threads, and using brass sheet from the hobby shop to shim up all of the wiggley parts all over the place.
Happy new year!
