  • How far should my gunsmith turn down my AR-15 barrel under the handguard?

    Is it a bad idea? Should I send it away or can any gunsmith do it?

    May be a bad idea if he is not good on the lathe. If he is good on the lathe, then all you need to know is the contour you want to go with. If you have a military weight barrel to show him, go with that contour. The area of particular concern is the chamber (in front of actually) area. Do not get too thin there. See if you can borrow a gun with a militay weight barrel and let the guy use it as a model. Follow the deminsions there and you should be fine.

    But, ask youself this before you have ANY gunsmith do any type of work "Do I trust this guy? Does he do good work?"
    There is no I' n team!

    There are three types of people in the world: 1. Those that can count. 4. Those that can't.
    So, am I your man Mr. Dumbass? The name, is Dumaas!

        don't know what your smith will be charging you. but there are light barrels out there. cavarms makes a lwgt one.
        why not keep what you have, save some cash up, then buy another.
        that or see if someone is looking to swap with you upper for upper.
