As staff shouldn't you say 'welcome to the forum'? Then provide some useful information that addresses their question.

Instead, the OP is left with a sour taste from unhelpful information from some anonymous person on a forum with unknown, perhaps very poor, credentials.

.007 is fine. Smaller would be nicer but I actually find it rare to get a smaller gap irregardless of the brand. Especially used.

Stay Safe
Dude, if you boldly go watch where you place your non dominant hand (and any other body parts). With the super low bore axis, flame cutting comes out abnormally low on the sides near the frame bottom. (I know, why should this be any more normal than any other part of the gun.) You may be wishing that gap was 0.000 before you’re done!

Good luck with your shooting.
