what picture? The adco link I posted? Im sending my smith the hellfire mount well before the work starts so he can take measurements and check it all out and go from there. Worst case scenario I have it threaded and a brake matched to it or just have it shipped back as is. Then buy a new gun that will work
Yes the link.

Yes the link.
I thought that looked pretty sharp. Is it the best method? I don’t know. But I’m sure it’ll do it’s job. Had I seen that before sending my gun in I probably would have shipped it to adco. I might snap a photo of that or try and get the link sent to my gunsmith.

It is a fairly simple and easy job to do providing there is enough steel to cut a good thread.

Yes he also mentioned red loctite. Because of the small shoulder and guarantees it’ll stay put. He’s done other barrels with small shoulders and had no issues I guess. So we’ll see. Again he said he’ll get it to work one way or another. This place comes highly recommended by the gun shops near me. And with 8 gunsmiths on hand I’m sure they can figure it out. Again it’s my favorite gun and never having gunsmithing done before it’s still a little nerve racking. I have more confidence in him after talking with him again on Monday. So we’ll just see what happens. They are backed up so it might be 3 weeks until he gets to it.
You will be ok and be happy when you get your rifel
