Welcome from Ky
Now the question i would like to ask is im reading the mark II semi auto pistol build there is a series of them out there for hobby builds. But the one thing each manual leaves out is properly making the barrel as far as chambering section and the rifiled barrel section. Now i remember clinton westwoods video that he took down off of youtube went over this.but i did not get a cgance to download it. Can any body give me a idea of the sequence of these things i know that the bullet case can not enter the barrel section that is why the chambering section is bored out alittle bigger than the barreling section plus i know the barraling section has to be rifiled inorder to be accurate.but they say if the barrel is to tight the bullet can get stuck and the gun can explode but the barrel cant also be too loose. How much bigger than the bullet is the barrel in diameter before rifiling? And to make a barrel i know you have to drill from both sides of the cylinder one cavity for the chamber and one cavity for the barrel (the longer but slightly less narrow). And no need for specifics i just need a general idea to get the picture.like is the barrel a thousandth small in diameter than the chamber.please anybody answering in laymans terms even though i want to study machining to to design other useful gadgets im not familiar to the lingo so if you can clear things up and explain in as basic terms as possible thank you very much
