    Gentlemen,


    I reacently received a Belt Mountain base pin and I'm having a bit of trouble installing it on a Ruger New Model Blackhawk. It seems that the pin fits the cylinder snug as a bug, however it just will not clear the first frame hole (the one with the base pin latch). It goes in about 1/2mm and thats it.

    I know I probably need to lap the holes in the frame, but how do most of you go about doing this? What material should I use and what tools will I need to do this?

    Any help is greatly appreciated. It's obvious this belt mountain base pin is superior to the factory one and I want to use it bad!
