Smith to recrown barrel

Recommended Posts

I have an ar15 barrel that had some minor damage to the end of the barrel. I'd like to have it cut down a few inches and recrowned.

The only gunsmith I have any experience with was a guy in paterson but they couldnt even install a muzzle brake correctly,   looking for recommendations for a gunsmith in the north east that can do it at a reasonable cost.

was hoping there was  local

Unfortunately, not exactly a demand for such service.

How long is the barrel currently? 

who makes it?

Might it be worth it to just buy a new barrel?

 

If it's something you think it is worth it, then ADCO would be the place to do it.

I didnt realize it was a big deal and thought it could be done for ~~$50  locally.

The barrel is 20" and I would like to cut it down to 18. If I cant find someone to do it at that price Ill just do it myself and take it to the range and see if accuracy is affected.

If the barrel is chrome lined and you cut it, it will flake off in time - FYI

Exactly Right!

AR barrels are cheap, and it would most likely cost you less to buy a new one than the have a smith cut & re-crown

Good Luck!

If you go through ADCO and just want a standard crown it is about $60 according to their site if you send the whole upper. 

If you can take it apart it's 30 bucks.

The shipping obviously will add up tho.

If its a good barrel it's probably worth it, but why dump money into one if it's nothing special? Most damage to a crowned barrel is most likely cosmetic anyway, thats why theyre crowned.

For the amount of work done to make guns compliant, it is absurd what is charged, but this is NJ. 

A standard brake job  from ADCO is 30 bucks.

    • I just sent this to the Senators on the committee.   Senators,            The State of New Jersey has gone to extraordinary efforts to prevent it's law abiding citizens from being able to protect themselves and further enjoy their 2nd Amendment rights as guaranteed by the Bill of Rights in the U.S. Constitution.  When will the madness end?             I certainly don't advocate ANY animal abuse, but S-746, as written, could lead to my gun rights being taken away for something as simple as my dog's water  bowl being empty on a hot summer's day because my child or even my dog inadvertently knocked it over and a nosy neighbor called the police before I took notice and filled the bowl!             The above situation, as ridiculous as it is, has nothing to do with my ability to safely own a firearm, nor should it...but it could!             Please stop using every excuse you can think of to take guns from the hands of the law abiding, yet doing nothing to take them from criminals!  A criminal who robs a liquor store with a gun will, in a plea deal, have the gun charge dropped and be free in 18 months. An innocent person like Shaneen Allen who, with a carry permit in PA crossed into our state and were it not for Governor Christie, would have spent 5 years behind bars for simply not realizing she was leaving A free state and entering one that does not fully recognize our Bill of Rights as most states rightfully do!  I implore to to end the madness now! Respectfully submitted,
    • So, if you go out jogging with your dog, will that be considered inhumane? Better be careful how may times you throw the frisbee for him at the park. How about making him run hard through the woods bird hunting? Some would consider that abuse. How about participation in Agility or K9 obstacle course competitions, where the dog is pushed to perform? Take your dog for a walk on a hot day, and his tongue is hanging out and he's panting heavy.... GUILTY!!!!! Lots of possibilities for Red Flag dog complaints.
    • Thank you! I will ask about the extensions when I go to pick up my permits.  Another option would be applying for a OGAM exception.  That may end up being easier since I think it’s the NJSP and not local PD that approves those.
    • Only for leaving a dog in a car under INHUMANE conditions, no one is going to get in trouble for leaving their dog in a car when it's not to hot or cold out.    4:22-17. a. A person who shall: (1)Overdrive, overload, drive when overloaded, overwork, deprive of necessary sustenance, abuse, or needlessly kill a living animal or creature; (2)Cause or procure, by any direct or indirect means, including but not limited to through the use of another living animal or creature, any such acts to be done; or 3)Inflict unnecessary cruelty upon a living animal or creature, by any direct or indirect means, including but not limited to through the use of another living animal or creature; or unnecessarily fail to provide a living animal or creature of which the person has charge either as an owner or otherwise with proper food, drink, shelter or protection from the weather; or leave it unattended in a vehicle under inhumane conditions adverse to the health or welfare of the living animal or creature--
