Product Information

Necessary when finish chambering a barrel or when checking the chamber of a used gun to be sure the headspace dimensions are within safe limits. This is a No Go Gage only, and both a Go Gage and a No Go Gage are required to properly headspace a barrel.

These No Go Gages represent the upper limit of SAAMI specifications for proper headspace dimensions. If the action closes with this gage inserted, then the firearm may not be within acceptable maximum headspace dimensions and should be examined further by a knowledgeable gunsmith.

Technical Information

Material:
  • A2 Tool Steel

    Notes:

    Go Gage:
  • Ascertains correct headspace dimensions by duplicating the minimum allowable distance, from the case head (or boltface) to the datum line of the cartridge's shoulder, allowed within the chamber to secure a loaded cartridge and allow the breech to be closed in a safe manner for firing.
  • If the firearm locks up in battery when the gage is inserted, then it is within acceptable minimum headspace dimensions and may be used.

    No-Go Gage:
  • Duplicates the distance over the maximum allowable, from the case head (or boltface) to the datum line of the cartridge's shoulder, allowed within the chamber to secure a loaded cartridge and allow the breech to be closed in a safe manner for firing.
  • If the firearm locks up in battery when the gage is inserted, then it is not within acceptable maximum headspace dimensions. The firearm should not be used and should be examined further by a knowledgeable gunsmith.
