Hi guys...
I disappeared for a bit, & so apologise for not responding to your reply posts.
Without going into much detail, i feel i should give some reason to my apparent ignorance...
There i was (nearly) ready to bed my brno & before i had a chance to read any of your suggestions i recieved news of a death & so ive been otherwise consumed with doing what i could to help my daughter sort out that mess, & ive not had the mental time or space to log on at all.

Ive even had fox & cat skins (that should be cuddly little rugs by now) still sitting in a pickle just outside the back door all that time with barely even a stir, & not even touched a piece of brass, let alone seen a rifle in this time...
(Im in so much shooting withdrawal its not funny...!!..perfect weather now & fox season & im home & hating it...but there's lots of foxes out there that are happy ive been otherwise preoccupied).

Anyway, all is sorted now, & ive got some catch-up to do...lots of brass to size & load & a shoulder that is threatning to self dislocate if i dont beat it with recoil from a few butt stocks.

Ill revisit this issue of my brno very soon i hope...in the mean time, apologies for not responding & thanks to all who posted valuble info up for me...!!!

Can anyone tell me--does an action screw need to be a snug fit to an aluminium pillar...?

I was going to buy some ali tube to replace the rolled pin in the stock of the brno mod 2.

The existing clearance is about 2.2mm in total (1.1mm all around the action screw).

If i buy the ali tube thats readily available, there will be approx 1.25mm clearance all around the action screw.

Will this suffice for a .22 or should i get something turned up...?
(I dont have a lathe)...

Stix,

[Sorry to hijack this...]

I have a neighbor who has resurrected his brothers Brno Model 2.

It looks to have been manufactured in 1976. Serial No is 237 XXX, and he assures me the barrel has 'CZ Brno Mod. 2.'

I wondered if you knew anything much about the differences between the Model 2 and the Model 2E, and if you knew what serial number was the end of the Brno-made versions, before it moved to the CZ-made model?
I have read on the rimfire forums that there was a number of them assembled by CZ using the leftover parts from the Brno production, but I wondered if you knew any more info on the Model 2, and how it differed?

Also, neighbour is moaning that he has run out of Remington Yellow jackets(discontinued), and that the CCI stingers arent anywhere near as effective in knockdown compared to the Remingtons. What do you run in yours?

Sorry to hear about the family grief; I hope things settle down for you and yours.

Cheers,

Rod.

Hi Rod...
I dont mind a hijack...but i do hope i get my answer... :D

If by family grief you're refering to me--that was earlier this year & lets just say its all dead, buried & over with... :)
So i want to get back to bedding my brno.

I dont know differences between 2 & 2e...mine is 1970 mod 2.

I run subsonic hollowpoints for hunting...if you hit them in the right spot everything i shoot with them falls over & not every rabbit runs away from firing subs... :thumbsup:

The E has the hogsback style stock comb, I think the E is for Euro but don't quote me on it. :thumbsup:

Stix you should have clearance around your action screws. It is often quite a bit larger than what you have. Look at the pillars Lumly might have some dimensions on them. It is only the last 5 mm that is more the size of the screw/ bolt that acts as a washer of sorts. The clearance is there just to allow that little bit of natural movement and misalignment that is always going to happen. I tighten mine down pretty tight one things have settled.

Hey rod.
Found this on rimfire central.
Just about everything you need to know about brno’s is on that forum if you have a week to read it all.

Chappo,

Many thanks; that gives me a few more ideas.

I'll have to take the time and go trawling through there again!

Thanks again,

Cheers,

Rod.

why ali tube Stix :unknown:

I'm not saying it's no good but have a look at what I put in the rear tang of the 22 dasher mate
its just a tube to stop the crushing effect and so you can tighten up the king screws tighter :thumbsup:
dont make whatever you use to thick or you will compromise the stock by having to thin it out where you fit it
for one of my rifles I bought the brownells ali set but I had to thin it down first, never did it again though
and as has been said make sure it has plenty of clearance around the screw, you do not want the screw to touch when fitted :thumbsup:

Hey Marksman...

Ali tube only because everything i see & read says aluminium pillars etc.

As you say its just to stop crushing...
I actually got hold of an original brno pin/tube but think ill put a tube in incase i bodge it... :unknown:

I dont want to cut up my tyre inflator for the project...cos mine works :lol:

So i guess using steel makes sense now you mention it...as you say can do it up tighty tight.

The original is about 9.2mm OD, 1.1mm thick
The Aluminium tube i was gonna buy is 10mm OD with 1.6mm wall so as i said above there is more clearance for the screw than original...& i figured drilling out the stock a further .4mmin radius wont compromise it any... :unknown:

Guess ill fire up google now & see if i can find some steel tube in same dimensions...
