Fabricating a Replacement Front SIght for the Slavia 630, Part 2

On I go.

Drilling some 5/8" diameter bar.

Reaming 1/2"

Soldered (silver soldered) the two parts together. Notice the large area of solder overun...things shifted a bit while they were red hot and I was poking solder into them.

Cleaned up.

Drilling for the sight post.

Tapping #8-32

Turning down the end of a #8-32 setscrew to make the post.

Facing the end.

Tapping #4-40 for the clamp screw.


Another lame cold blue job by yours truly. The upside is that I can now shoot the air rifle and hit what I'm aiming at, which was the whole point of this little exercise...

Hi. Could you write the exact measurements for piston seal and spring guide?
And what material did you use for making piston seal?

I have Slavia 620 and iám trying to rebuild it because it is in poor shape.

Thank You.
