Barrel jacket question

Post by LyingBastard »

This is my spare barrel jacket (for the barrel project) and, is it me or it looks it was bent towards the front sight?

I can swear I am seeing a bit of a bulge/dent forming around the first third of the front sight base and then going in an angle towards the muzzle of the barrel. I put the barrel nut (the only one I have right now) to help highlight the feeling of off-centeredness I have.

Looks like barrel bushing has been cross threaded in.

I agree on the Xthread, getting a reliable smith to chase those threads is gonna be a B**~~> :!: :!: They'd have to start way back & come out with out changing the thread pitch.
I can't find one anymore that won't rip you off then charge for work not done or schlepped though just to get your money. :x
Blueing is non existent, lathe or mill work is not just a arm & leg but your option to procreate. :twisted:
Wish I could find a near local smith, reliable, accurate, & fair....
I have many pieces needing bluing that would be prime repair parts. I have 3 projects desperate for accurate mill/lathe work. Plus I need 2-3 die bodies turned for my reloading stuff.
