The installation is towards bottom of page. Just make sure you don't run afoul on Nfa laws before proceeding.

1200 degree silver solder is acceptable also...and it's easier IMO, especially when using the paste-type silver solder, like this stuff available from Brownell's:

Well I don't have a drill press and don't want to chance damaging the barrel. Damn it I really don't wanna send this sucker out being as how I will be using it for a pig hunt next week. I guess I have a back up AR I could use... Not sure on if I want to run a mb556 or a BC 1.5 being as how it will be perm attached I'm thinking of the mb556k for the future when I move to a suppressor friendly state...

My vote goes to the MB556k but what's your location there are local shops that can do it for you.
