Ok, How do i find out what my threading i have on the end of my rifle.
Currently i have a Tikka .243 which i had threaded maybe 4-5 years ago by the gunsmith at my local shop. It was originally cut to fit a PES. I then got a .270 and a friend of mine srewcut that for me on his lathe using the same PES specifications. Now, i aint thick when it comes to most things but converting sizes has never been my strong point.
Ok, so now i have on order a new T3 which will be screwcut by the manufacturer.
In a conversation on the phone to Fester the other day he asked if i`d got it yet and whether it was comming screwcut and if so, what was i gonna put on it. I told him i was going to use the Wildcat on which i now use on the .243 to which he asked what thread i`d had put on it. I answered that i was positive it was 1/2" unf to which he said that he was sure that Tikka came screwcut at 15mm. So if this is the case then i need to ask Tikka to screwcut it to 1/2 unf, because if it comes with the wrong thread then i will have to either have it recut to that or buy another mod which i don`t really want to do.
So, how do i measure what it is, as i need to act ASAP.
I hope this makes sense.
