Today Sniperm88 and I went down to Mike @ TSC and he threaded 2 Bushmaster barrel's for Sniperm88. I took a few photos, some are good and some blurry but here are a few. He did an excellent job in a short time. If anyone is interested here is his #804-994-5478.

So what is a thread job running?

Give him a call but a standard thread job is 50 dollars. Might be more if there is a pressed on or welded muzzle brake. Can't beat 1 day service.

That looks really nice. Where is the picture with the flash supressor?

Yeah, I should have taken before and after photos but forgot.

Looks like I'll go down and see him to get my 9mm upper threaded for a plain old suppressor. The gemtech bilug is like $120 each.

Mike really did nice work. He also has some nice toys around, you may leave with something you did not intend on doing. I may have to get that form 1 going for a SBR sooner than planned...

Thanks.

It was SNIPERm88's barrels. So I'll ask him to reply back to you with the necessary info.

Btw, reading the other thread about doing threading work makes me almost shake my head. Yes it is cheaper but when you add in shipping it is almost the same cost. Oh, not to mention 3 weeks!?!?

I have to take exception to this since I started that thread you are referring to, for one the person doing this work was bashing everyone that did not attend a shoot with a select fire weapon at Hite Hollow and constantly has never apologized for the ranting.

As an owner of full auto weapons I feel that TSC showed a very poor approach and has never rescinded his pompous atitude of the incident, to include that a person should never bash anyone’s weapon just because it is not as expensive or form of fire. In other words, TSC needs to rethink his ways about persons attending shoots that do not have a FA weapon since it was a public range and anyone is allowed to shoot whenever it is open, just because he set up the shoot, does not make him the king of the range.

I am not making a penny for helping others in the barrel threading and do not intend on asking or accepting any money for assisting in it, as far as the company doing the work they have been very helpful and have agreed to do the work for labor only. To include that if you 7 care to take over the barrel threading, be my guest.

He was pissed off becase some yahoo's were coming over and taking his "transferrable" MG's and shooting them without his ok or knowledge. That is bad manners, not to mention illegal as hell. For that I can understand being pissed off and his 'rant'.

For some reason I missed that part of his post.

Maybe he didn't want to talk about that. Anyway who give a shit. Back on topic. This is just another option for people to get their barrel's threaded. Quick, same day service and you can probably go watch for free.

You still have not answered my question about why you slammed my post when you had nothing to do with it, nor did you have any barrels done.

So go ahead and shake your head all you want, since the next time you need a Starlight case it will cost you far more than you could ever afford.

Never stick me in the back after I do you a favor.

No problem here

Wow I've been attacked, for what I do not know.

Lets see, I did not slam your thread in the first place. I posted something in this thread saying I don't understand why go the 'other' route and wait 3 weeks for a barrel to be threaded. No harm no foul.

As far as the case, I thank you again for the price you gave me.

See you Saturday.
