The recoil lug is also a barrel nut made of 410 stainless that is threaded on the outside and the inside. Then the forearm has a threaded aluminum insert and it just threads onto the barrel nut and shoulders against the recoil lug part of the nut. I have used this method before with great results.

Yea I made it. Thanks. It is almost all carbon fiber with the only aluminum being the Bottom metal and the black piece you see just behind the action.

Ha ha. Don't sweat it. I suck at spelling! You could kick my butt at Scrabble.

PS. I had to ask my wife how to spell Scrabble.
