7.62x40 Reamer and Headspace Gages
bls4321 Member Posts: 11 ✭✭
Looking at where I can get a hold of headspace gages and reamer for 7.62 x 40 WT. I have tried all of the places like Midway and Brownells along with all the rental sources. The only thing I have found so far is Pacific has the go gage for sale. I am fitting a pre chambered barrel and hopefully will only need the gage. Any help would be appreciated borrow, buy, rent. I am not wanting to keep them in inventory after I do the barrel fit. Thanks Guys
You might go directly to the Wilson Combat Site and ask them:

That was my first check. Nothing. You would think that the designer of the cartridge would have the tools to support the product???
James Clyde Gates - a friend and Masonic Brother owned Dixie Slugs in Old Town, Florida. I visited as often as I could and was his 'go-for' for some of his projects he did for some customers. He always used Clymer Precision reamers and chamber gauges. Address: 1605 West Hamlin Road - Rochester Hill, MI 48309 - 1-877-762-6377. Todd Wilms is the CEO and he might be able to tell you about a source for the materials you desire.
I am in hopes that this may be of some assistance in your quest.
