Correcting the gap between cylinder and forcing cone on '51?
Today my question is... how to correct the cylinder gap on an 1851 navy by ASP.
The gap on mine is far to big and im sure im losing a fair amount of velocity and muzzle energy due to it. i have concocted a few ideas but still have some questions..
My first idea was to file the area where the 2 pins connect to the barrel assembly thing, and then file the pins down a lil bit aswell incase the holes arent deep enough after fileing but then after i do that, even if the gap is exactly how i want it, im wondering if the big flat pin that holds everything together will still fit in properly with the changes i want to make??
I'm open to any suggestions you all may have.
