Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Would like to re barrel my Type 99 but cannot find someone to take on the project. Any suggestions?

You could contact Richard McMurray in Potlatch, ID: gunsmith@cpcinternet.com. Do you have a donor barrel?
Frequently wrong, never in doubt.

The T 99 has metric thread pitch , I believe it is M1.5 .I would have to check my notes to be sure.I have rebarreled one to 257 Rob Ackley .On my lathe I had to change to metric gearing , kind of a pia but not real hard to do .That may be the reason some wouldn't want to do it .Just a heads up on the metric thread .
