When installing a barrel on an 1892, will the threads index themselves?

I guess what I’m asking, is there a certain orientation the barrel should be in when the threading begins? Is there more than 1 “starting point”?

I just put the barrel in on my rebuild project and it stops pretty close to the proper alignment without any torque. I know there shouldn’t be much torque applied, but I did expect to have apply a little to line things up.

There is only one starting spot on a threaded barrel.

Thanks,

This is how far I’ve managed to get. I have an end cap on order to be able to attach the forearm.

I’ll take it for a test run and if all goes well, take all back it down, have the s/n strengthened (re-engraved), do a home rust bluing, and make it a fun range range gun since the barrel isn’t original.

Winchester brls. are the only ones I know of that can be expected to index properly without hand fitting.  Others, such as Stevens & Ballard, usually do not, which may be the reason they were serialized to match the rcvr.; presume this was because they were hand fitted during assembly. 

Corey, in 1959 I was hunting (doves & crows, mainly) with my father’s Sweet Sixteen, which at that point was far from new; first shotgun I ever fired.

If this is not the original barrel I would buy a set of go and no go gauges or have a gunsmith check it out for you.  You must make sure to have the correct head space.  I am not sure what the proper torque is but at least 40 to 60 pound feet?????????
