You MUST understand this before you do any welding up front!!This is one of the most important parts,get it wrong and you won't be able to get the barrel into the gun! There is also a tutorial on Pirates site about installing the wiselite repair part that explains it.Feel free to ask about anything you are not sure of. ---bil
