Re: AR Barrel Replacement

I lap all my uppers and have on all the uppers I’ve built. That being said, a coworker or mine went a little nuts on building uppers in different calibers and lengths. He was using the cheapest barrels that he could find like BCA,Anderson,Ar Stoner, Davidson Defense. He had 2 that didn’t group at all, the targets looked like shot gun patterning boards. He was going to junk the barrels and I told him to try bedding them to the receiver first and both of them improved significantly. After that he bedded all of his barrels and told me it improved the groups on most but not all of them.

Re: AR Barrel Replacement

A vice block or a reaction rod are unnecessary. Most of the tools that everyone thinks you need can be done with a standard tool set and a vice with 2 pieces of wood to clamp the barrel into the vice without maring your barrel.

So to make a long story short, you have everything you need. The only thing I would suggest is green or blue loctite to bed your barrel. Just make sure the loctite doesn’t get on your threads.
