If your useing all new parts, there is nothing to headspace. Put it all together and shoot it. It will be headspaced from LMT...........Evne if there used parts, there is no way to adjust the headspace except for buying new parts. Its a good idea to check it with a go no-go gauge but there is nothing you can do about it if its out .... Assemble and enjoy.....

You really ought to check the head space before you shoot, just to be on the safe side... use the go, no-go gauges... if you are using a new barrel and it is not right meaning too short or to long then the company where you bought the barrel from should replace it...

You can adjust for headspace on the barrel but you will need a lathe, and a competent gunsmith to do it... But it is easier just to send the parts back... Cheaper too...

How much would I need to worry about a Bushy barrel and a RRA bolt and bolt carrier.
Thanks
