Re: AR 15 BARREL & BBL. EXTENSION QUESTIONS
Thanks for the quick reply and confirmation about mfg. method of aligning gas hole. I originally bought barrel with the intention of making a dedicated .22 l.r. upper using my conversion kit. It would not matter about the gas hole since the action is "blow back". The barrel appears to have never been shot and I don't know why they were sold to Sarco. I also see what appears to be to be the same bbl. offered by Numrich at twice the price. I have a front gas block with picatinny rails that is held on with set screws which would eliminate the need to fill the cuts for the taper pins that are cut into the bbl. I would only need to fill the gas hole and line up and drill another to fit the new gas block.
Also, the hint that I would buy "JUNK" hurts my tender feelings !!! JUNQUE, yes. JUNK, no way!! I am a die hard tinkerer and see the beauty and majesty in what can be created from others cast-offs. Besides, I have a friend that I will get to shoot this thing if I can master the gas hole problem.
