Our forward pipe, without lug
, mounts to the rib of a halfstock pistol or rifle. File a flat on the pipe, and a matching flat into the rib. Cut the rib deep enough to allow the ramrod to slide smoothly down the inside of the rib, and through the pipe. Tin both flats with solder, cool, clamp in place, then re-heat to sweat solder
the two flats together. Wipe off excess solder, using steel wool, while molten. We recommend using our #SOLDER-SB Stay-Brite
extra strong solder and flux.Halfstock pistols and rifles
, with metal underrib to the muzzle, require one entry pipe, and one or two forward pipes without lugs. Order one mounting pin or one mounting screw, plus solder and flux. Extra long halfstock rifles may use three forward pipes.
