    O.K. This is what I know I got wrong

    1. Exposed copper! I know, I know! I'm not to fussed though. I should have found one with a Stainless post. Is there anything else I can do apart from making a new post?

    2. The Squonk hole is not straight, but it still works, so again, I'm not fussed.

    3. The Squonk hole could be lower, below the level of the deck, I'll try to do better next time.

    4. The adjustment screw head is very fat, but if I take more of I will lose all the Phillips head, I could then cut a slot. It fits my one and only bottom feeder MOD so it's all good for now. I'll have to see if I can find some screws with a shallower head, maybe socket head? Button head?

    Some people pickle copper and brass to remove surface lead.

    I would have to be careful? Wouldn't pickling remove more gold?

    Stumpy Time! Used the same method, but used one of the Button Head Screws this time. I like them better........................

    The Stumpy is better than the Derringer, even in non-BF mode (less spit back, more room to build on & better design IMO) & looks better suited for a BF conversion since most of the work has been done for you before you start converting it :)

    GJ Laurie, I like the flat allen head screw, good amount of protrusion on it too.
