Part 2 of pressing the Gerat 05 receiver
With the first stamping completed on the Gerat 05 receiver it is now time to complete the second stamping. As you could see in the photos there were a couple of items that needed to be corrected.
With the second set of dies we press in the correct angle for the magazine housing, both in the front and back of the receiver.
The angle is not great but it make a very large difference to proper magazine placement.
This what it not looks like with the magazine installed.
You can see in this picture that the magazine has proper contact through out the entire receiver.
The rest of the second stamping also bent the bottom of the receiver.
Here is a look at the second set of stamping dies.
This close up shows the new angle for the front of the dies.
So today I am back out finishing the second pressing for the second stamping op. More to come.
