Guys, I need a machine shop that can mill the end of my free float handguard down about 0.3". I have had this guard for several years and just recently added a Saker 762 and tt will not mount up and needs to be trimmed. Thanks for the suggestions.

Belt sander should do the trick

I don't have any experience with Little Rock machine shops, but Conway Precision Products did thread a 15-22 barrel for me. It was week turn around time, and I think $60 or so. If you don't find anyone closer might give them a call.

The owner is a gun guy from the collection I could see in his office.

375 Commerce Rd,
Conway, AR 72032

Thanks,
I tried to use a die grinder to open the inside up a bit and quickly realized I didn't have enough ass in my compressor to do it properly. I thought about just using a bandsaw but I really don't want to fuck up a $200 rail. It's a troy battle alpha with the integrated front popup sight so it makes it a bit more difficult.

Thanks, I just spoke to them on the phone...I'm assuming by their location I should probably be carrying a firearm when I visit...

How do you like the Saker? I've been watching them for the last year but haven't seen any in person. Does it stay located up tight when mounted? I've heard of and seen the ACC SDN6 wiggle loose after firing for prolonged periods.

I picked it up monday and have only shot it at my dealers so i really haven't take it through it paces. But I will say it is just as tight on that trifecta mount as it would be on a direct thread. I don't think I will have any issues at all with it becoming loose.

CCJ, I went over my lunch break and told them what I needed and took all parts. They threw it on a lathe and 20 minutes later I was out of there and everything fits perfect. Very nice people, Thanks!

Thanks!

This will give you a pretty good idea of what had to be done.
