That's definitely bearable. The whole barrel will be under the rail, so even if I had to paint it black, it would almost look like a shadow to the QD mount. I guess worst case is I send it to you, you look at it and determine it can't be done, and I'm just out the cost of shipping both ways.
Obviously the bore is the same even though the OD changes, right? What minimum OD would I need to have 5/8-24 threads cut?
The description of the "Recon Profile" barrel says:
: Our Recon profile is the lighter of our two profiles. The profile is 0.75" diameter under the hand guard and at the journal at the gas port. The diameter steps down to 0.70" after the gas block journal. Near the muzzle, the diameter steps up to 0.75" and then back down to 0.72" in order to accommodate the collar for the Ops Inc 12th Model silencer.
With 5/8 = .625, doesn't that mean I'm good with the barrel ranging between .70-.75?
