If your comment about being 80 implies your time left on earth is limited, well I am 70 and if I don't get the barrel before I am not here anymore, would I know? .....No

Thanks for the updates. That picture of your express sight made me think, possibly order a little bit of platinum wire and tap it in to that center eye alignment groove. Maybe, with that British styled express sight, revisit the striker peep configuration. Only thinking out loud, nothing more.

I wouldn't have the slightest qualms with your barrel choice, have you ever considered the Brux folks. I ask only for curiosity if they are held in good regard around the area?

I have not looked at Brux so can't help. Krieger are nice and I have had excellent results with them.

Continuing to move forward on the project. Its slow because the barrel is still some months away but a few things are coming together. I now have a design plan for the magazine, set trigger setup and takedown design. I have physically been working on sights and the bolt handle. I have attached two pics: another design for a 3 leaf express and the new bolt handle welded and rough finished. Oh, also decided to make a Lyman 36 type peep sight. Will show when I get it done.

Update: Made the peep sight for the project. It is basically a Lyman 36 with my own spin and improvements. It will be final finished and elevation and windage hash marks added after testing.

Looking good. Will the scales be verniers?

Yes....."A vernier scale is a visual aid to take an accurate measurement reading between two graduation markings on a linear scale by using mechanical interpolation; thereby increasing resolution and reducing measurement uncertainty by using vernier acuity to reduce human estimation error."

It's a bit more than that. Just like a slide rule is a bit more than a generic yardstick.
