Anyone around have a set of 5.56 headspace gauges I could use to check the upper I just put together?

I am in Holt.

Thanks, Jeremy

Did you thread the barrel and install the barrel extension?
Did you get the barrel from a reputable supplier?
then why?

If you installed your barrel extension then how did you do it without a headspace gage?

No.

Micro MOA barrel and sionics bolt, so should be ok.

then why?

Since it is on registered lower thought I would just double check to make 100% sure it was ok. I realize most don't check this. If no one has one convenient to me, will just test fire it this week.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. Maybe just a lack of confidence in my building skills and trying to make sure I check everything possible....
