Default Need to sandblast my new build near Visalia CA

I finished my virgin M85 kit and would like to blast it before I paint it. Being new to Visalia I don't have too many resources here. I can compensate with some .223 ammo or homemade wine.

Not sure who makes the barrel extension, got if from Dustin at CivTactical.com

I'm also not looking to send my gun out or drive for hours to get it done. I'll go buy a set up if I have to.

Anyone have luck with one of those sandblasted guns at HF?

The problem with sand/media blasting is not the "set up" but the need for a lot of air -- most folks do not get a big enough compressor --

Mine has enough CFM to run one, but my tank is only 20 gallons, so I would have to run it the whole time or take brakes.

I may have to just sand it by hand. I'm really wanting to blast the trunnion and gas block to smooth them out a bit.

You can use mine if you have the compressor to run.
Got a park tank? You can use mine as well if you buy the chemicals.

Dude, I totally forgot you had one in the garage. We will have to set something up. I'll text you
