L1A1 BUILD

Hello all, I'm new to this forum, but have been a long time follower. I have had no luck in finding Breeching Washers to complete my newest build. Any and all Intel regarding this issue would be very helpful as well as greatly appreciated!

Thank you

I make them custom to your specs. Determine what size you need and let us or me know if interested. I charge $15.00 shipped to the lower 48.

I'm thinking about making some that would correspond with a #11, #12, etc. to Work with damaged shoulders. E-mail me with a quote in lots of 10

I made mine by bending a piece of a metal coathanger into a circle and beating it flat with a hammer, Costs zero dollars, and you needn't worry about getting a bad measurement or time shipping back and forth.

It actually makes sense because the softer alloy they're made of can give a bit, so it can accommodate chamber heat and recoil shock. It is a guess and check thing, but again the metallurgy means it can squish a bit, which can let your barrel tighten down snugly.

If you're not getting the ~100+ ft lbs torque on the bearing surface, might want to reconsider that method. Plus, consider the 'standard' breeching washer has been used successfully for 60+ years. Why gamble with home-made, when the correct part can be had for $15 or less??

Good idea, and I understand your point. Definitely use a torque wrench. This one has stayed true for five years. If tightened properly I can't see why it wouldn't be effective.
