I am trying to decide if I really need to ship my upper off to one of the big name guys to have it done, or if this is something that an everyday local gunsmith can handle.

Thanks!

I certainly don't see it as a big deal. Places like ADCO may be cheaper, but you need to figure shipping in on the total cost.

Any local machine shop should be able to thread an AR15 barrel. I've got one I use that turns the profile down recrowns and threads the barrel for $15 while I wait. He's also very pro gun.It's a small two man family owned shop.

Machine shops are definitely better than gunsmiths for this job. Alot of gunsmiths don't deal with ARs alot, although there a few out there that do. The only catch to that is you would likely have to disassemble/reassemble the upper yourself so that the machinist can work on the barrel.

Just stopped at the local fun shop to ask about barrel threading, no-go.

Said my best bet was probably send it to Bushmaster or someone like ADCO.
