So I just picked this up and planned on threading it for a suppressor. I was just wondering, since the fluted part is so close to that tip of the rifle, will there be any problems threading into the fluted area? Will I lose accuracy? Will I lose any strength in the barrel?

Thanks

It should be fine.  The muzzle will be turned down deeper than the fluteing anyway.  You should not really lose any strength or accuracy if the job is done right.  Use a competent gun smith who really knows ARs.

What are some companies to look into? There is someone local to me, but his wait list is long. I rather just send it off. ADCO is what a friend of mine recommended.

ADCO would be my recomendation. I sent a barrel down last week and it should be here tomorrow, not bad inso far as turn around.

Definitly ADCO.  Fast turnaround, good price, & great work.  Its very hard nowadays to get all 3 of these from a gunsmith.

It's settled then. ADCO it is.

Here's what my barrel will look like after it's been threaded:






^ As you can see, it goes into the flute and I was just worried for a second if that would mess anything up
