A buddy of mine rebarreled his 45. He RR and was getting 4-6” groups with 185 Federal Match.
He asked me to take a look at the pistol. Overall he did an excellent job fitting the barrel, but it needed some minor finessing to get it just right. I spent an hour measuring and tweaking. It came out near textbook perfect. Fortunately there was plenty of meat left on the barrel.
Here’s the new test target. 9 shots 1-3/16” and 10th opened to 1-7/8”

Hey!

The "finesse" is what all owners of JE guns pay the big bucks for!

So, JE, please, STFU now!

😂🤣😂🤣👍

This thread reminds me of an old joke. May be not verbatim but the best I remember.

The owner of a manufacturing company had a machine not running correctly.
None of his maintenance workers could fix it. Neither could any local repairmen.
Finally he found a fellow who guaranteed he could make it run right for $1000.
The guy came and listened to the machine then walked all around feeling it with his hands.
After a while he went to his tool bag and came back with a big hammer.
He located the spot he wanted and reared back and hit the machine hard.
It started running correctly to every ones amazement.
The owner asks him do you mean I paid you $1000 just to smack my machine with a hammer?

The man replies: NO, you paid me $1000 because I know Where to smack it.

Thank you Jon for sharing your knowledge and advise with us but we all should understand you cannot give away all your trade secrets.

Thanks
Darrell

I heard that he chalked an X on the defective part and told them to replace it. When he was asked for an itemized bill he submitted

$1 for 1 Chalk Mark
$999 for Knowing where to put it

The knowledge IS the value.
I do hope Jon takes on an apprentice or two to train before he gets ready to retire.

I worked in a Aluminum smelter for 15yrs, I was running a billet saw when out of the clear blue it just stopped run and no matter what you tried it wouldn't run. The saw had a history of doing this and our Maintenace mech would come back walk around the saw and make an X on the flour and stand on the X. He would then tell me to start the saw and the dang thing would run like a Swiss clock. This mostly happened on grave yard shift and everyone said it was haunted.
