Default All thread barrel install kicks azz

Barrels installed using the allthread method. Who needs expensive tools.









It takes me longer to setup than to install the barrel.

Ive done all my 7.62 biulds that way.....I use an extra carrier that I have to run the all thread thru on the breach end ...just remove the bolt and stick the all thread thru the carrier and barrel ,then add the nuts and washers to each, line everything up and start cranking. I also use some high pressure grease on the turnion and threads. This method most likely will not work for 5.45...the all thread would be very small and would strip IMO. If anyone has done this with a 5.45 let us know how you faired.

I am a few steps back from usin liquid nitrogen....... but I certainly havent needed to make a threaded rod monkey lately.

I am getting more and more convinced that all the BARREL PIN and BARREL "problems" are being caused by the builder.

There's a few Romy barrel pins you haven't met yet, then!

[QUOTE=morepoop4u]Barrels installed using the allthread method. Who needs expensive tools.

[I lined up the barrel to the trunion by eye and repeatedly dropped the combination onto a peice of lead. After a bunch of wacks it came into position, and then I hammered the barrel pin in to set it. I didn't feel like making a tool. I used a BFG hammer and a punch to drive the pin out and an old bearing puller to extract the barrel from the trunion.
Gotta love the way these things work.
