AR Type Rifle Work

Tear down and re-assemble your upper $40
All barrel machine work requires the barrel to be removed from the upper receiver. If you are not outfitted to do this yourself, we can handle it for you. If you only have 1 or 2 rifles, it's probably not worth buying the tools. If you have several rifles and you feel you are mechanically inclined, I would encourage you to get the barrel wrench, torque wrench, pin punches etc and do it yourself.

Barrel Threading $30
This is the most commonly requested service. The barrel gets mounted in the lathe with a live center in the muzzle. The muzzle gets turned down to the required size and then threads are cut with a single point tool. This ensures that the threads will be perfectly concentric and parallel to the bore. After the threads are done and deburred, a new crown is cut to eliminate the damage caused by the live center. Other shops would consider this a 'precision' threading job. I do the standard thread sizes, 1/2-28 or 5/8-24, with verification from my gauges and tooling. Other sizes will require the precision threading service below. The threaded area will be finished with touchup bluing. Picture (http://www.ar15barrels.com/gfx/threads.jpg).

Precision Barrel Threading $50
This is a more specialized threading service required when the typical threading above will not handle the job. The barrel gets mounted in the lathe with a live center in the muzzle. The muzzle gets turned down to the required size and then threads are cut with a single point tool. This ensures that the threads will be perfectly concentric and parallel to the bore. After the threads are done and deburred, a new crown is cut to eliminate the damage caused by the live center. I can turn any of the common thread sizes such as 1/2-28, 9/16-24 or 5/8-24 to a specified pitch diameter. If you are mounting a sound suppressor, the manufacturer will usually specify a pitch diameter or mating thread class fit. I can also turn any other thread size you could ever need as long as I have a mating part or a similarly threaded part to measure. This includes 1/2-36 as used on 9mm, 9/16-24 or any of the 28 TPI sizes like 9/16-28 or 3/4-28 etc. The threaded area will be finished with touchup bluing on chromoly barrels.

Shorten Barrel and Thread Muzzle $45
This service includes shortening the barrel to any length you specify and normal threading to 1/2-28 or 5/8-24 and re-cutting the crown. Machined areas will be finished with touchup bluing. Opening up the gas port for proper function at your new barrel length is also included. Picture (http://www.ar15barrels.com/gfx/cut-thread.jpg) Picture 2 (http://www.ar15barrels.com/gfx/10inchlw.jpg) Picture3 (http://www.ar15barrels.com/gfx/9mm-cut-thread.jpg)

Remove Permanently Attached Muzzle Device $25
This service includes machining away your old muzzle device and cleaning up the threads to prep the muzzle for a new muzzle device to be permanently attached. In most cases, the old muzzle device will be destroyed so it will not be salvageable.

Permanently Attach Muzzle Device $30
This service includes drilling through the installed muzzle device and into the barrel, installing a blind pin, welding over the end of the pin and machining the surface of the weld to match the profile of the muzzle device. This does not include barrel threading. This service is required to convert a 14.5" M4 barrel into a legal 16"+ barrel length. Machined areas will be finished with touchup blue where applicable. Picture (http://www.ar15barrels.com/gfx/perm-vortex.jpg) Picture2 (http://www.ar15barrels.com/gfx/perm-attach.jpg)

Shorten and Crown $25
This service includes shortening the barrel to any length you specify and re-cutting the crown as described below. Barrels that have been radically shortened will also require gas port work priced elsewhere. The crown face will be finished with touchup bluing where applicable.

Crown Job $15
Many poor shooting barrels can be traced to problems with the crown. The crown needs to be absolutely perpendicular to the bore. When the bullet leaves the bore, gas is released at very high pressure all the way around the bullet's base. If the crown were uneven, gas would release on one side first and this tends to disturb the bullet just as it sent on it's way downrange. Obviously this will show up as poor accuracy. Try this inexpensive service before you abandon a barrel that seems to be poor shooting. I use a specially ground high relief angle tool that only gets used for crowns and it gets re-sharpened before every job. The tool is pulled straight out from the bore so that no burrs are created at the end of the bore. The bore-crown junction will be flat, with a radius about half way out on the crown face. This creates a slightly recessed crown job. The crown face will be finished with touchup bluing where applicable. Picture (http://www.ar15barrels.com/gfx/making12.jpg)

Compensator Indexing $20
The typical method to index a compensator to the barrel involves the use of peel washers or crush washers. Neither method leaves a nicely finished look. This service is purely cosmetic, but it's one of those small details that you come to appreciate on custom rifles. I can index a muzzle device to your existing barrel by facing off the rear of the muzzle device, or by facing off the barrel torque shoulder if the barrel will already be in the lathe for other operations. Simple facing of the muzzle device does not require the barrel to be removed from the upper. I will add touchup bluing where appropriate.

Compensator Re-Threading & Re-Boring $20
Typical Flash hiders are threaded 1/2-28 internally. 1/2-28 threads are not appropriate on barrels larger than 6mm I typically recommend 9/16-24 or 5/8-24 for barrels with larger bores Typical military flash hiders have two grooves on the outside that only allow them to be opened up to 9/16-24 The minor diameter at the bottom of the grooves is 5/8" and opening them to 5/8-24 causes them to break in half. Aftermarket compensators come in many different sizes and many can be re-bored and re-threaded to work on larger calibers. Internal threads will be left unfinished.

AR Type Rifle Work Continued

Partial Barrel Profiling $40
This service is to turn your heavy barrel down to any lighter profile you specify. This includes the diameter under the handguards or the diameter from the front sight base forward. I can turn any kind of profile that includes basic straight cylinders and short tapers not to exceed about 2" in length. This service does not provide for changing the gas block seat diameter. This service can be combined with basic threading to turn a heavy 'post ban' barrel into a medium weight 'no-ban' barrel without the need for a tapered bushing to support the muzzle device. Machined areas will be left unfinished.
Picture (http://www.ar15barrels.com/gfx/partial-profile.jpg) Picture 2 (http://www.ar15barrels.com/gfx/10inchlw.jpg)

Full Barrel Profiling $75
This service is to turn your heavy barrel down to any lighter profile you specify. This includes the diameter under the handguards and the diameter from the front sight base forward. I can turn any kind of profile that includes basic straight cylinders and short tapers not to exceed about 2" in length. This service also provides for changing the gas block seat diameter from 0.940" down to 0.750". This service can be combined with basic threading to turn a heavy 'post ban' barrel into a lightweight 'no-ban' barrel without the need for a tapered bushing to support the muzzle device. Machined areas will be left unfinished. Picture (http://www.ar15barrels.com/gfx/perm-phantom.jpg)

Blast and Parkerize $35
Any profiling work that is visible will generally require the barrel to be blasted and parkerized. This also fixes barrels that were parkerized with the front sight base assembled instead of separately. Barrel threading and crowning can generally be touched up with simple touchup bluing, but the finish does not match parkerizing. If your barrel has a few scratches and you just want it to look new again, this is what you need.

Bolt Action Rifle Work

Tear down and rebuild a bolt action rifle $40
Any bolt action rifle that's going to have barrel work done will need to have the scope and scope rail removed from the action as well as the action removed from the stock. This service includes removing all old loctite and chasing the original threads with a tap as needed. This also covers the re-installation of the scope rail and scope to the action after the barrel work is done.

Barrel threading on bolt action rifles $100
This service includes removing the barrel from the action, threading the muzzle, re-cutting the crown, indexing a muzzle device on the barrel and re-installing the barrel on the action.

Shorten and thread barrel on bolt action rifles $120
This service includes removing the barrel from the action, cutting to the specified length, threading the muzzle, re-cutting the crown, indexing a muzzle device on the barrel and re-installing the barrel on the action.

Bolt action trigger work $20 to $30
This is a basic trigger job for most bolt action rifles with adjustable triggers. It includes a lightweight replacement spring on old style 700 triggers. We will reduce the creep, pull weight and overtravel as much as possible while keeping the trigger safe. This service will also apply to swapping out the factory trigger for an aftermarket trigger, but does not include any parts.

Mount and bore-sight scope on a bolt action rifle $30
This includes installing the scope mount to the action with loctite and proper screw torque, determining optimum eye relief, installing and properly torquing rings to the rail, aligning scope in rings and properly torquing ring caps and a 50yd bore sight.

Mount, lap and bore-sight scope on a bolt action rifle $60
This includes installing the scope mount to the action with loctite and proper screw torque, determining optimum eye relief, installing and properly torquing rings to the rail, lapping scope rings to ensure perfect ring alignment, aligning scope in rings and properly torquing ring caps and a 50yd bore sight.

Oversized bolt knob $60
I cut off the original bolt knob and weld a threaded stud to the bolt handle. This service includes a basic black anodized Badger style bolt knob. Picture (http://ar15barrels.com/gfx/bolt-knobs.jpg)

Receiver and Bolt Truing $350
The receiver's bolt raceway is bored to 0.705", then indicated to within +/- 0.0001" concentricity in the lathe so that the lugs and front face can be cut true and the threads single point chased until they are perfectly concentric to the bolt raceway. The bolt gets setup true so that the lugs and breechface can be re-cut. The firing pin hole gets bushed to 0.062" and the firing pin diameter is turned down to fit. I weld on bumps at the rear of the bolt to remove excess play within the receiver.

Rebarreling $250
This includes fitting a customer supplied barrel blank to a customer's receiver. The barrel blank will be dialed in to +/- 0.0001" concentricty, threaded to fit the action with minimum play and chambered with any of my standard reamers or a customer provided reamer. The muzzle will be crowned or a customer provided muzzle brake can also be fitted at the same time.

For those who do not know him, Randall really knows his stuff and has a million different special tools and fixtures to do the job right the first time.
Considering all the special tools and operations needed for these jobs, the prices above strike me as a real bargain.

Plus, he does it while you wait if you make arrangements up front.
The calendar on his shop wall does say August 2008, but you being there in person moves the "gunsmith-time-warp" up to "now".

If I could only get him to wear safety glasses when his nose is 2 inches from the cutting bits....

I have a 14.5 upper with fixed hider. I'm not sure if gas port was in spec for 14.5 so I want to send it to you. I want to confirm that there'll be no need for the permanent hider to be removed.

If it has standard handguards, then there's no need to pull the flash hider off.
If it has a rail system covering a low profile gas block, there's a good chance the whole thing needs to come apart.

I had a local gunshop remove the barrel, fsb, and flash hider. I didn't have the tools at the time. IIRC it wasn't the reciever. The gas port doesn't line up with the notch on the extension. I'll have to look when I get home.

I strongly recommend against going that short if you still want the gun to function reliably.

Yes.
If it's the standard tapered barrel, I put threads right at the muzzle which will remove the ability to run the front sight.
If it's a bull barrel, I can thread the existing muzzle or shorten and thread to any length you want.

Sounds like you need the following:
40 Tear down and rebuild an upper
40 Partial barrel profiling (under handguards)
35 blast and re-parkerize a chromoly barrel

The brake choice depends on the budget and what you like.
A simple cheap brake from Stag or Armalite works fine.
A $30 YHM 5M1 looks more aggressive like a flash hider, but is still a brake.
For $50, the DPMS miculek is a very effective brake.
A JP or MSTN probably work the best, but also cost upwards of $90.

and shipped back
and do you have a MI low pro gas block in stock (or any that may work?)

Upper is a bcm 16" mid, rails is a MI t-12. I plan on purchasing myself and sending it with the upper. Any other parts you may need sent?

I'm not sure what you charge to profile to match barrel diameter and bore the muzzle brake.

So far this is what I have:

Tear down and re-assemble upper 40.00
Precision Barrel Threading 50.00
Compensator Indexing 10.00
Blast and Parkerize 35.00
Return Shipping 20.00

I know you don't do side chargers anymore because you break taps. But if you change your mind let me know how much you charge and I'll send a few extra taps your way :)

Hi Randall,

Iím looking to get a Krieger barrel that has regular M16 feedramps on the barrel extension (it is all they are currently offering), but I want to mate it to a VLTOR MUR upper receiver which has M4 extension grooves cut in.

Any chance you offer a service to machine or shave down the barrel extension so that it mates with the M4 feedramps on the upper? I've seen you discuss this on another thread before. I'm looking for a precision job with the proper angle/dimensions measured, not just an eyeballed dremel job like some other places are offering. Can you tell me what you can do?

Thanks!

I can put an aftermarket handle and knob on that bolt after cutting off the handle.
I was thinking you wanted the original bent handle to be re-used.
That would be quite difficult.

I have used this knob with good results before:
http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/sid=5341/sku/Lenard_Brownell_Bolt_Knob
The knob will need to be finished after welding and cleanup, but I don't do any re-finishing in-house.

freonr22
05-14-2010, 12:12 AM
How Difficult?

For conversations sake? Honestly, that was all what I assumed. I mean it would be great to tweak existing, but it not really even possible, right? i mean could it be done for $150-$200 or is it $400?

Or really, just cut & move forward.. also what to do about refinish, can i cold blue or is that garbage? Could i get away with a polished/bare handle on an all blued action? might be ok..or maybe some one has a better bolt body made, but the I would ASSUME potential head space issues..?

WOW! after looking at that, its kinda a no brainer.

ar15barrels
05-14-2010, 12:24 AM
How Difficult?

When you cut the bolt handle off, you leave about a 1/4" tall square shank.
That's the part that fits into the reciever cut.
Then the new handle gets welded to that root and cleaned up to not exceed the size of that square shank in front or on top.
The bolt ends up looking like a ruger 77 bolt in shape/size:

Usually S12's have undersized/missing ports from the factory, I had randall disassemble my gas system and drill an additional gas port in the barrel as well as enlarge the holes that were already there.

He did a fantastic job and charged me a very reasonable rate. I'll be returning to him for more work in the future.

xjdesertfox,
Did you shorten your Saiga12 barrel? Or was it just not cycling out of the box? I'm contemplating shortening mine but hesitant 'cause I was warned that it'd need to have the ports opened up.

BTW; mailed a 22LR AR barrel out just today and forgot to ask how's your turn-around these days, Randall? I'd imagine any AR or AK service work could be "in demand" amidst this buying panic.

One of his gas ports was mostly blocked off by a burr from the factory drilling job.
The barrel was not shortened.
We opened up the original gas ports slightly and added the third port.

Turnaround on shipped-in jobs is running about 2 weeks right now.
They generally get completed in the order, they arrive.

It would be helpful if folks that were looking for customers said where they were located.

My profile shows that I am in Van Nuys.
I don't know how much easier I can make it than having my location in my profile.
What else do you suggest?

Ehh, I still remember the old Randall. Some good... some bad. He's mellow now trust me :D

About three years ago he would have shoved a BCG where the sun dont shine up on this guy for a statement like that :rolleyes:

Randall is the only gunsmith I go to now. He's about an hour away but well worth it. My highest recommendation. :D

Im a repeat customer.

The appointment scheduling is perfect to fit my time
and work done while you wait.

Randall, I need an AR15 barrel but opened up for a very thick bull barrel, can I ship to you? Or do you have some laying around I could buy off you? How much to open it up? (I have calipers, will measure diameter of barrel).

Thanks
Matt

It depends on the weight.
Return shipping costs are listed on my service order form which you should complete and include with any mailed-in service work.

Randall, I was wondering what I would be charged or have to check off on your ordering form.

I need:

Have a pinned fh removed off a 14.5 barrel. Remove the front sight, delta, etc. and change to a low profile gas block. Install a centurion rail. Then pin a new flash hider.

Thank you

FYI I went by Randall's to get a BCM A2X that had been pinned and welded removed and repinned and welded with a PWS FSC556 on my BCM 14.5 inch middy. Man fantastic job and in and out in less that 15 minutes. Quality craftsmanship at its best.

Can you reuse a once pinned on hider? Or does the hider get ruined removing them?
