    Gunsmithing- Thread Protector

    Who does a good job welding and pinning a thread protector on a barrel? Not looking to do it myself.

    Are you looking for local? I had one done by Adco and was very happy with the results.

      Why is it a requirement to weld and pin the thread protector on?
      Would red locktite or jb weld suffice?

      I thought welding and/or pinning was a requirement if the barrel was less than the required minimum length to be a rifle (not a sbr).

      And the threaded barrel is obviously an evil feature on an AR so it must be addressed.
      But it didn't mention anything like permanently welding, etc..

      Anyone know for sure?

        Don't care what is required or not. I'm looking for a gunsmith to pin and weld a thread protector.

      Didn't country gunsmith shut down? Thought I saw they were up for sale on the other site before I was kicked out the door?

          Had issues with their product, didn't like the outcome. But thanks for the reply.

        Bob outsources his welding to kids in India (j/k) Some guys love him, some have had very dubious results and posted them.

        DSI does a 4 point pin and weld, just FYI. It is a tad pricey at I believe 50 bucks. I know they're not an option for you.

        Bruce is the other operating go-to gunsmith (Hunters Essentials) and does good work.
