Hello all, this is my first post. I'm in the early stages of building my first AR from the ground up. Since I live in the Red Republic of New Jersey, I must pin and weld the compensator to the barrel to make the threads useless. I donot have access to an electric welder, but I can use silver soldder. Would the heat required to melt the soldder cause damage to the barrel? All replies are welcomed. Thanks.

not if done correctly, if you question yourself send it to a gunsmith that can do it.

Thanks for your input, correctly I can do it , was just wondering if it would affect the metal hardness or even the chrome lining of the barrel, metallurgy is not my forte!hinking.gif

I got rid of my post ban barrell simply because I wanted a barrel that has something on it (compensator) but after a while I already did miss my old barrels. It's because once the front end is done (fixed, pinned,welded). changing float tubes, front site base can cost you a lot of smithing money. Now I was considering a compensator that will have the same diameter of the barrell. With this I can alway slip the dammned thing out and change whatever I wanted. Make a note that I already thought of two piece YHM front sight witout the bayo lug (hard to come by) and the YHM spectre gas block for ease of maintenance. Also the Benny Cooley brake and mini y comp would pass thru the barrell nut. Before you consider the permanent barrel end, do consider this for future accessory add-ons.

I have defenitely thought of the consequenses once the comp. is in place, but here where I live is either fix one on permanently or dont put one at all. I really like the look of a compted barrel so I will give up some of the possible future mods. Thanks for the advice.

Still have no one comment on the question of heating the barrel to melt the silver solder. If anyone has a view on this please share! Or if you know of a better process let me know. Thanks. head.gif
