I finally got my SBR stamp and yesterday I installed my TROS 5" 3 lug barrel and here's the end result.



Now that is how that upper will always look, and I sure hope it works because that barrel is never coming off, I felt like I was pressing an AK barrel on. I had to heat the receiver and then tap the barrel on with a block of wood and a dead blow hammer. At about 3/4th on it was completely stopped and took an awful lot of pounding and heat to get it installed, but at that point there was no stopping, I would have never been able to get it out.

Has anybody else ever had that problem with a barrel?

I guess I posted this in the wrong forum.

It's quickly becoming my favorite, I can't get enough of it, it's an AR that I can shoot pistol steel courses with.

My setup is almost exactly like yours and I had no trouble at all with the bbl fit. What brand upper did you use?? Wonder if something was out of spec??

I oredred the 9 inch from TROS via Ameetec... Can't wait to check that out... Damn, class 3 takes f o r e v e r..... went with the miad grip kit and the HK lugs for the TROS mp5 suppressor, which will be availible to me uhhh 2008 perhaps...my first class 3 so I hope the extra 400 bucks and the long wait are worth it... :)
