3 months and a pandemic later I finally got the mini300/garand back from my smith today. He's got it together, op rods together and not binding but can't it to function. The bolt only moves about an inch when firing generic factory blkout ammo. Cycles by hand just fine. Rather than pay him to tinker with it I figured that I can do that for free. I'll play with my loads first and then start opening up the gas port. It's a small cartridge and a lot of steel to move around. It would appear that I need more gas. Also got my 1873 carbine back from him so I have that to work on not to mention my 1927a1 sbr. Here it is at the gunsmiths with his 1928 try stock and 10.5 bbl. I'm still waiting for my 1928 stock quick detach furniture [called the slide] coming from the Netherlands via a slow boat from China I think.
