COAX notes

Whenever you need more than 3 feet of wire, coax is required, however the female connectors are impossible to find so you will have to build your own. first you will have to find a base with the coax guts in it. if its NOS it will have a brass shipping cap on the end. by drilling this cap out it will give you a good place to start. you will have to go to google patents (Coaxial cable coupling US 2615953 A) and give those drawings to your gun smith along with your RG-11 coax. the photo is of a homemade connector in a M29. that we put together. using this method.
