SO is there anyone in So Central WI that can thread the barrel of my bushmaster since the AWB is no longer in effect? Looking into putting a flash suppressor on to cut the freaking muzzle ball down. Even my .300 doesnt have that big of a flash.


BTW how much should the rifle be dissassembled when I take it in or just take teh upper in?

Gander Mt. may or may not depending on the gunsmith you talk to. I would reccommend taking a stripped barrel.

Send me an email at mbohmann@wi.rr.com and we can discuss your situation. I can probably help you out. I have a decent lathe in my shop here. I'm in SE WI.

diesel1 opened his mouth.....

I should learn how since I have access to a lathe.....maybe we should hook up, diesel1, I would be eager to learn how.

No problem. I just need to get some tooling set up and practice on some scrap. I used to work in the machine shop at work, but even there we very seldom did single point threading. It's not hard to do. Just requires a bit of set up. Send me an e-mail if you want to get together. Other lathe projects OK too. I've got a 13" lathe here at home and access to the 24" at work.

Sounds like we need a group latheing.

Sounds good to me, how about we bring this up again in the colder months when activities are slower?

I will gladly travel south of Milw. down to Racine or something if need be. Everyone bring a barrel or a piece of barstock?

After Labor Day would be good. It does get a bit stuffy out in the lean-to where the machines are. Let's keep in touch.
