WELL WITH THE AWB ABOUT TO GO AWAY (FOR A SHORT WHILE), CAN ANY ONE HELP ME WITH THE IDEA OF PUTTING A 3 PRONG FLASH HIDER ON MY POST BAN BUSHY? I SPOKE WITH THE GUYS AT CMMG, AND THEY SAID FOR ME TO SEND IN MY BARREL. THEY WOULD HAVE TO TURN IT DOWN, THREAD IT, AND THEN RE-FINISH IT. SOUNDS LIKE A LOT OF WORK. THE PRICE HE QUOTED WASN'T WAY OUT OF LINE?, BUT I LIKE TO DO THINGS MYSELF. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR ME.DON'T GET ME WRONG, THE GUYS AT CMMG ARE COOL. I'VE MET THEM, BUT I LIKE TO GO AGAINST THE ODDS AND COME UP WITH OTHER CONCLUSIONS.......NO WHAT I MEAN?

It means to turn the caps lock off by pressing the caps lock key as shown in the pic.

Unless you have access to a machine shop send it to a professional. & thank you for turning off the CAPS lock. -Justin

Caps lock? What's the big freakin deal? Its just habbit from work. If it bothers so many of you then I'll stop! Not a big deal, but just ask please. You don't have to be a smart a** like "Egineer".

Thank You,

just a tip- on message boards (like this one) it means you're yelling.... and is annoying to look at

and don't take internet talk so personally...


now for the flash hider- send it out... you don't want to mess up cutting threads and ruin your barrel.... jmho of course

Caps lock is considered yelling, and really annoying. Theres only a couple people who can get away with posting in all caps for some reason?? Engineer is a good guy, he was just being a bit flippant



And bigbore is just being modest in not mentioning that he does an outstanding job threading barrels. I think the cost is something like $60 IIRC and the turn around time is about one week.

I'd suggest you contact him and he'll take care of you!

Don't come in here with that attitude, Fruit Loops! You might wait til you're here a while before you take command of the site.

We like to have a little fun here, you know. You'll get all your questions answered if you lighten up a little and enjoy.

Start calling the local machine shops in your yellow pages phone book. I found a local shop that will turn down, thread, and recrown a barrel for $15 while I wait(during lunch).
Link Posted: 9/7/2004 5:17:03 PM EST
Thanks for all the advice. I guess I owe you all an apology. I had no idea that typing in caps was yelling on a forum. Thanks again for the tips. Bad habits are hard to break.

DBAR,

It looks like I owe you an apology as well. I saw the caps and had you pegged for someone trying to troll the boards.

Like others have said, it is probably best to have it sent out if you don't have the tools to do it yourself. If you can't find someone to do it local, then either CMMG, Steve/Adco and KKF (links to their websites can be found in the Industry forum) can all do the work. I've had Adco do some work for me and have been very pleased with the results. True they are a little more expensive than some of the others mentioned, but their turn around is amazingly fast and the work is top notch (and hey, gotta support the local Ohio guy).

...and a good time was had by all....

yup- i'm gonna have to start looking around so i can get mine threaded also

Engineer,
What is Troll the board?

markm,
I have no attitude, sorry if it seemed so. Please call me DBAR not "fruit loops".

btw - I'm going to see about changing DBAR to dbar.

I want to thank everyone for putting up with me. I'm a bit new here and I'm still learning

Thanks again guys for all the good info.

And can it be done on a barrel that has a press-on/pinned faux FS - like the RRA or Fulton-Armory barrels?

See my post above. It's approximately $60 through Adco.

Adco shop services.

You'll have to contact bigbore (Adco) for more information, but it sounds like it can be accomplished.

LIghten up Francis, it's the internet.

DBAR,

I don't know where you live in MO. but one of the best shops around for AR stuff in the STL area is www.csmetall-werkes.com/.

I'm doing the same thing and C&S quoted me $60 + cost of a FS and washer.
Link Posted: 9/9/2004 7:47:20 PM EST
Thanks JMR,
I'm on the other side of the state. I'll still ck into it though.

DBAR, I'm from KC and called Denny's Guns about this very topic today. Looks like $50 if the barrel is off the upper, if not it's $80. Look them up in the phone book or serch for them on this page. They are a partner and good guys too.
Take it easy on the new guys fellas

sabre_kc

Thanks for telling me, now I don't have to call them. I'll have to get with them some time next week. I just got a RRA stock from them on Wed. They do alot of business and sometimes they have a very long wait on gun smithing. Very good work i've heard, but sometimes long waiting list.

Thanks
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 8:26:58 PM EST
Denny's=GOOD

CMMG=GOOD

ADCO=GOOD

The top two are in state, therefore most likely cheaper. I have bought several guns from Denny's, and Denny is a customer of mine as well, he is a stand up guy, so is Chuck, who runs the retail end of the business. Denny will proably get my no-ban FAL build business, as well as a buch of misc...AR stuff.

I picked up my ArmaLite Uppers today and for the both of them it was $120.00 from a local gunsmith.
I also had to replace the gas tube on my older ArmaLite for it was in really bad shape that was $10.00
