Hi all

I’ve got a couple of projects in various stages on the go and one of them is a martini Henry falling block, now I’m wondering what material to make this out of I prefer steel as opposed to stainless but I also have a chunk of 7075-t6 for ar parts.

If anyone could point me in the right direction that would be fantastic


Thanks
Lucas

4130 is easy to find but harder to machine. What parts are you making?

Everything from the receiver to the ejectors and firing pins

Cheers

Mr. Mathews made a list in a shotgun news article. I'll dig it out Monday.

Primo thanks mate. Would this transfer to rifles?

Common Gun Metals

Carbon Steels

  • 1020 and 1520—Common, “plain” or cold-rolled steel. You’ll find it in trigger guards, floorplates, sights, sling swivels and other steel hardware.
  • 4140—Ordnance steel or chrome-moly steel, it has 0.4 percent carbon and is really strong while still being cost-effective to machine. You’ll find this in barrels, bolts receivers and high-stress items like muzzle brakes.
  • 4150—The same as “ordnance” steel but with the carbon content upped to 0.5 percent. 4150 holds up better to serious abuse, and it’s found primarily in mil-spec AR-15 barrels.
  • 41V45—A chrome-moly variant, it has a dash of vanadium in it. This is an alloy selected to produce hammer-forged barrels.
  • 8620—This is a full-up alloy of nickel, chromium, molybdenum, with 0.2 percent carbon. Cast receivers are made of this alloy because it fills the mold well, machines cleanly and ends up very tough and strong.

Stainless Steels

  • 316—Also known as “marine” grade stainless, as it resists corrosion well because of added molybdenum but is not easy to harden. Used in trigger guards and floorplates.
  • 17-4—An alloy with 17 percent chromium and 4 percent nickel. 17-4 (or a close kin) is readily hardened and is used in barrels, bolts and receivers.

Aluminum Alloys

  • 6061—Aircraft aluminum, selected in that application for its light weight and ease of fabrication into complex parts. Floorplates on hunting rifles, scope rings and some handguards and buffer tubes on AR-15 rifles are made of 6061.
  • 7075—Much stronger than 6061, it’s the alloy used in AR-15 upper and lower receivers, some mil-spec brands of buffer tubes and some railed handguards. In mil-spec parlance, it is known as “7057-T6”; the last part designates the type of heat treatment it receives.

Couldn't find the SGN list. Found this one here
