There might be an easier and cheaper way to do this. Send your "postban" barrel (or complete upper) to ADCO, and have them turn it down to a superlight profile. That's what I did.

This was a "postban" Bushmaster HBAR that I sent to ADCO. They threaded the barrel, and turned it down. IIRC, the total cost was something like $125. Their turnaround time is usually about a week, and their workmanship is excellent.

Though I do agree that ADCO does great work, this is NOT one of those times I'd suggest profiling. If you buy the barrel from Bushmaster ($205) they will install it FREE. Even if he sells his post-ban barrel for $100, that's still only $105 invested, PLUS he'll have the true .625 FSB rather than a .750.

You're on the right track...
