I was seriously thinking about having a local gunsmith turn my Armalite hbar down to A2 profile, but i've got two questions: 1) is the lathe process going to screw with my bore diameter? ran across an article that said something to that effect last night 2) Anybody know where i can the exact measurements for an A2 profile barrel? Bushmaster lists diameters on their website, but not the exact points at which one diameter turns into another.
Thanks all

Get with Kurt's Kustom Firearms (probably in the "Industry" forum). He does this all the time. Ship only the upper receiver and some $$$ (I'm not sure what he charges) and it'll be done right with no problems. Techincally it's not a difficult operation and any gunsmith who is worthy of the title can do it. But some are real hacks. There aren't many 'smiths in my area. But I can choose between hacks and overpriced snobs. I would rather send my stuff to Kurt and live without it for while.

An ArmaLite and a Bushmaster that were reprofile LW from HBAR by Kurt... His work is outstanding and like KODoc says, nobody else touches my firearms! [img]img.villagephotos.com/p/2003-5/122167/KKF07.jpg[/img] Additional images here: [url]www.villagephotos.com/pubbrowse.asp?selected=183340[/url]
