WALZ K2 bolt action build for a member (COMPLETED)
Received a k2 bolt action rifle from a member here and was asked to make it a working bolt action action that would use todays paint.
It now has a sm. bore stainless steel .680 barrel with a full brass sleeve to give it a more original look.
I added a side tube with a thadaptor feed (holds 20+)
Also re-ported air ports with .277 i.d. porting.
Modded one hole valve and palmer dyna valve pin.
Just want him to see how it coming along.. LMK...More to come...

The front site reminds me of the Rocketeer.

Good work..

What brand of solder and flux are you using? I am about out of a large batch I bought years ago and I need to do some shopping..

Again.. good job..

Thanks BigMatt, I am still learning as I go. This one customer wanted a simple, clean look of a hunting rifle. I think I got it but he will lmk for sure.
The solder I am using right now is a roll of "silvabrite 100" 5% silver that a buddy gave me a couple of months ago. I was using "forney's 6% silver solder with great success but this was free and it seems somewhat better when powdercoating. Forney's is good also but its not cheap.
The flux is cheap- I have been using "rubyfluid" soldering paste with both and it works well with both brass and stainless steel.
