I'm just about ready to send in a 14.5" barrel (with barrel nut and gas block installed on the barrel) and a muzzle brake to have it pinned and welded. My handguard will fit over everything, so no need to include that.
My question is: Do I need to shim and time the brake before sending it to you, or will you guys do that as part of this service?
I don't want to bother messing with it if you'll have to remove the brake for the pin/weld service. If I do need to do this first, I'm not sure if I have the right shims on hand now, so I'd probably need to order a set prior to sending my parts out if I need to do this.
