    Piano wire, .055" diameter. The holes are drilled at an angle facing each other at a size just large enough to accomodate the wire. They are drilled on/near the top edge of the barrel extension near the rear of the ejection port and should NOT be drilled through, so the wire will bottom in the hole. It would be almost even with the deflector if so equipped and span the stub equally on both sides. The front hole goes about two third's - three quarters of the way to the forward end of the port and the rear hole is about even with the bolt face with the bolt retracted. The wire is fashioned as a bow to protrude about 3/16" from the barrel extension surface. There was a template or instruction sheet offered somewhere for sale. I had one done by a local gunsmith by copying a friend's barrel that was modified. The piano wire was purchased at a hobby shop locally. It can also be obtained in one pound spools, but a few lengths from a hobby shop should keep you going for years.
