Replacing M-1 barrel.
I have a universal M-1 that is screwed up (no surprize there) that needs a new barrel. The gas block cracked and ruined the threads for the gas piston nut, it can't be saved. I am thinking of having a military take off barrel installed and want to know what pitfalls are involved in re-using a barrel.
I did think of using a new production barrel, but the cost of a new barrel for a "second rate" military clone just does not make sense (and I can't afford it).
I believe that the reciever is fully compatible with military parts, the 2 guns look identical when out of the wood and side by side.
