1903A3 Springfield D&t Problem
Posted 28 April 2011 - 08:03 PM
My problem is this. I have been placing the base on the receiver to get an idea where the holes will be before I drill. What I am finding is that if I position the rear hole in the middle of the male dovetail on the rear receiver bridge, the front holes are too far back on the front receiver. It appears that the rear hole on the front ring, will be drilled into the upper locking lug.
If I move the base forward to get that rear screw moved forward out of the locking lug, the screw for the rear bridge moves off the dovetail. Plus the inlettng on the front of the base is tapered at the back end, so that it won't move too far forward.
Plus, the D&T jig has 2 locating pins(Mauser jig only uses one). With the rear pin in place, the jig cannot move far enough back to position the rear screw in the middle of the male dovetail as it should be. I can tap the rear pin up, so that I can move the jig to the rear, but that puts the front screw holes too far back.
I'm at a loss as to how to fix this.

What is the diameter of the receiver ring and what is the diameter of the bolt at the lugs? Do the math, I doubt you will be near the where the lug bears. Even at .165 deep you won't be into the lug.
