FOR THE WIN FOR THE WIN FOR THE WIN

I had a gunsmith gently caress up my first 14.5" barrel by drilling just too deep after taking almost a month to get it done.



I still have this barrel and I've been slowly buying parts to make a 13.7" gun with it. Still need a handguard and a muzzle device to bring it over 16".

That sucks but it can be fixed. Try tack welding to fill the hole, like others have said here make sure you look directly at the arc with your naked eye to ensure precision.

Vroom Vroom, BEEP BEEP!

One of my classmates melted a contact while learning welding in vocational school

He wasn't very bright (but the arc he stared at was! )

14 pounds of 5.56 is on the way!

I should at least take a picture of the plastic bin with most of my parts collection in it or something.

Late edit: YIP YIP YIP chrome non-serrated retro BCG ordered!

No, no, just to get a gunsmith to do it. Itís a standard service right?

Yeah its a very common service. I'd just pay a smith to do it if you have one locally.

TEST YOUR MIGHT


Well I got a cheap 16Ē barrel to tide me over until I can actually source a lightweight 14.5Ē one, which I canít find anywhere for some ungodly reason.

Current plan is to build a new lightweight .223 Wylde on the KP-15 while doing an SBR Form 1 stamp to switch my current 5.56 with the heavy-rear end SOCOM barrel to a shorty .300 Blackout, then wait for a Form 4 to suppress it and in a year or two Iíll be blasting feral hogs verrrrrry quietly in the wee hours of the morning.

(I say Form 4 for the suppressor rather than Form 1 because Iím not sure I trust my own craftsmanship to convert a solvent trap into a suppressor that will hold up to centerfire rifle calibers...)

I'd suggest .458 SOCOM for subsonic hogbusting. Or supersonic hogbusting, for that matter.

It's entirely legal and possible to Form 1 the 'can', i.e. the housing and endcaps, then pay an 07 with a SOT to build the core for you. Once both endcaps are drilled it's legally a suppressor, and an 07 can work on it. I'm doing pretty much the same thing, but the guy's just boring my kit baffles instead of building the whole core from scratch.
