Doesn't that sound like a Hesse receiver?

It's a new improved Williams, went together as easy & trouble free as an Imbel till now. Regards, Rick G.

Williams receiver looks great, barrel timed just right, everything works smooth, think problem might be bolt or carrier. don't think it's the receiver. Regards, Rick G. New development I think L.S. milled out of spec. ,will post when I'm sure. Regards Rick G. Out of spec. L.S. pulled a.259 out of another of my fals, put it in my G1 & everything clicked. Thanks for the responses. Regards, Rick G.

You know I don't feel hugely confident about all this, but with the boards help, some patience and a friend of mine about 20 miles from here, I'm sure i'll get through it.
