I'm sure this has been asked before, but how much would the headspace be affected if the bolt carriers were swapped on an inch rifle? I'm obviously going to have it checked out with a gauge, but I'm curious if anyone has ever swapped a bolt carrier and had a headspace issue.

Doesn't change the HS if you're using the same bolt.

Thanks! I was pretty sure that was the case, but I will check it just the same to be on the safe side.

Ok, another question. I'm trying to swap rat tails, and am having trouble removing the pin.
is there a trick to this like making sure the tail is straight before trying to remove the pin?

It's a rivet.

So if I remove it, I'll need to replace the rivet, not the pin?
