Barrel change



Log in to see fewer ads
I am looking to change to the 8" barrel. Tried removing the old barrel myself but it is not budging. Tried using the bolt to drive it out, that bought me about a mm. Now i am thinking about taking it to a gunsmith to have it done before I mar or damage anything.

Does anybody know what the going rate for a barrel swap is? (or know a good gunsmith near Pensacola, FL)?

If you have access to a heat gun I would suggest using one to heat (just) the receiver extention; this will expand the aluminum and should make barrel removal easier.

There's a propane torch sitting next to my desk right now. Barrel swaps are quick and easy. Even with aftermarket barrels and receivers.
