Well as promised,I'm posting an update on the 34A/A1. Thanks to Sure-Shot and the photo
he posted of the parts list for the A1,I was able to get an idea of what the bolt handle looked
like. With some rough dimensions and a little lathe work at the Tool & Die shop I work at, I made up a bolt handle. At (http://www.pbase.com/tigweld/ranger_34a_update
) I posted some photos of the finished product. I'll order the rest of the parts I need in the next few weeks
and have the rifle back in firing order.
In case somebody wondered, I have over 30 years in the Tool & Die trade,15 years of that
welding full time. TIG,MIG,ARC,Oxy/Acetylene and Laser welding.
