    I am currently working on an add on rib for a customer. He says he wants to keep the same size front and mid beads. I know I can unscrew the original front bead and use it, but I can't unscrew the mid bead as I understand they are pressed in. I don't have his barrel yet, but I'd like to make sure I have the right size bead before I get his barrel to install the rib. Anybody happen to have a pair of calipers and a BT-99 that they can check real quick? Or better yet know it off of the top of their head. I have a BT of my own, but there's an add on rib covering my mid bead. Any help is greatly appreciated, Josh.

    Great, that's what I needed to know, figured it was either .063" (1/16) or the .080". Appreciate your help. Thanks, Josh.
