A big THANK YOU to Marylander. He loaned me his reamer and I reamed the chambers of my little 9-shot High Standard Double 9.

I got about the same amount of metal out of my 9 chambers as what PzKfW5 shows in this photo from the post that started this thread (though not as much as he shows in his final photo in that first post)
[/quote]

I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet but I'm pretty darned confident that the "get-me-a-hammer" extraction problem is solved.

New rounds that used to have to be pushed into the cylinder with my thumb just drop right in ALL the way to the rim now - and they all fall out together at once - just by turning the cylinder upside down now. No need to even touch the ejector rod.

Like so many others, I was really surprised at how much the reamer removed from the cylinders. However, I didn't end up with the the sharp ridge in the throat area of my cylinder like others have shown in some of the posted photos.

I don't know if that is indicative of how much more they reamed out of theirs, or if it is just a minor difference in the reamers?

Anyhow, I can't wait to shoot it again now. Once again, THANKS Marylander , your reamer will be packed up and shipped back to you on Friday with a tracking number provided via PM.

I hate to dig up an old thread but I guess it's better than starting a new one. For those who have finish reamed the chambers on a Smith 17-18, do you re-blue the chambers or leave them bare?

If you do leave them bare, what precautions do you take to prevent rust?

Thanks

I just left mine bare. Every time it is cleaned, there is always solvent/oil residue on the chamber walls.

Leave bare. Assuming you clean after shooting it and wipe a little oil in the chambers. Just make sure to use plenty of cutting oil when doing the reaming.

I'm going to buy a finish reamer from Manson for my machinist friend to do the job. Solid or removable pilot?

Save some money, and get the solid pilot. You are only going to turn it by hand, and getting the live pilot would be overkill for this application.

I may wait on the chamber reamer. I fired 100 rounds last night, CCI SV and didn't have any trouble with extraction. I may shoot some more in the next couple days with other ammo to see if that has any effect.

Thanks for the guidance.

Default Oil for reaming

You can use the oil that Home Depot sells for threading pipe. It is a cutting oil loaded with sulfur.
