    With so many pics and such floating around the net, who has found what to work? Pics would be great, dimensions would be even better.

    I've found it better to grind according to the wear marks in your rail rather than according to measurements. A lot of good information came up a while ago when I posed some questions. There's some good info in this thread if you go through it:
