    Default New member here!

    Greetings, everyone!

    Been an HK fan all my life. Currently have a PTR-91, HK-91, and a C-93 that's been modified.
    Introductions aside, this post has to do with my c-93. I took it on trade a while back. The guy it belonged to replaced the BCG (hk), and barrel (RCM).
    I shot the rifle again last weekend - shot fine aside from launching brass into the upper atmosphere (but the brass wasn't dinged or damaged, light flute marks).
    Anyway - I noticed that ::sigh:: half the barrel retaining pin was gone, cracked off. I was shocked, honestly. I cleaned the rifle, checked the bolt gap and at that point there was barely any
    on the (looking down through the magwell) on the left side and none on the right.

    I ordered a new barrel pin (new from RTG Parts) and +4 rollers. I'm wondering if I should find someone to repress the barrel / trunion or stick with the scientific method for now and just try
    replacing the pin and rollers to see if it irons itself out. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

    Regards,
    Dan

    Thanks, I sure hope so. Wouldn't want a BCG where my face used to be, or anything like that.

    As far as a Re-barrel goes, I'd reach out to Jeff, aka Ghilliebear
    Not sure if he's still working on Century guns,
    But it's worth an ask. Good luck, & welcome.

    Personally I'd have it repressed and pinned. Especially if the gap was in spec when you got it and now has no gap.

    I'm not saying that's right or wrong, but that's what I would do.

    thanks for the input guys! re-pressing might be my only way to go.

    Oh and I just re-cleaned the rifle and remeasured the gap. It's at a tight .051mm. Which, yes - is way too low, however it has been shot a lot. So maybe it's just time.

    If the new pin pounds in as it should the barrel hasn't shifted and the new rollers might fix the gap.
