Re-assembly of a FAL

I screwed up the muzzle of a DSA para medium contour barrel.

Local Class III that I use all the time agreed to cut, thread and permanatly attach (read: weld) a YHM QD to make the barrel a full legal length.

Machinist needed the barrel removed for some reason. Barrel was removed by smith that does lots of FAL work.

Barrel has been fixed as requested. I've saw it and am happy with it...but barrel has not been reinstalled. Its indexed correctly and just needs tightened into the receiver to 12 o'clock.

He's had the barrel and receiver since before Easter. I am out of patience.

If I get it back, anyone have a receiver wrench and needed tools to loan me for a weekend to tighten my barrel and finish the install?

Thanks,

I made one out of oak and one out of aluminum, both were retardly simple to make.

make a barrel block as well, also simple to make for a one time use, just drill a hole slightly under barrel size between 2 blocks, then rosin the shit out of it and clamp in a vice.

If I was home I would send you my aluminum one.

If there is any other interest, I just bought a FAL and could whip out some wrenches on the mill.

I have some other pirate projects going on, so let me get a yellow star next week and come up with a price. Anyone who's interested chime in.

Do people want the barrel vise as well?

That would be the right answer

Yes, I would want a barrel vice, as well.

Can you do Barrel threading as well? I have a century L1A1 with a neutered barrel. I'm looking to put a 3 slot FH I have on it. Barrel is still on the receiver. I have a local FFL if it has to go that way.

I'm in no hurry. Shoots fine the way it is but I want it to look right...eventually.
