with Ken Brooks
AGI Instructor and Master Gunsmith
In this video Ken Brooks takes us through the steps to correctly remove small dents from thin-walled shotgun barrels. This can be a simple money-maker for a gunsmith, or a project for you to complete with your own firearms.
When I saw this video the first time, I did question Ken’s use of the word “hydraulic” to describe the tool. Hydraulics usually refers to the use of a fluid to cause movement in a cylinder and of course, this tool is strictly mechanical. However I did see on the Brownell’s website that they also list the tool as “ORIGINAL ENGLISH HYDRAULIC DENT RAISER.” (click here to see it yourself). So am I right or wrong that it is incorrectly named?
