    Custom barrel threading????

    Just got offered a free Sionics .380 can (for the cost of the stamp), and am trying to figure out what I can do with it....

    Looks like there is plenty enough "meat" on an Uzi bbl to handle 5/8-11" threads, and still clear the stock bbl. nut.

    Who would you guys recommend that can trim an SMG bbl to about 8 3/4" OAL, and thread it 5/8-11" down to the retaining ring????

    Those threads are so coarse that they tend to come loose during firing which is not an issue if you are holding the van on a MAC but kinda out there for a full size Uzi. Have you thought about changing the mount on the can instead? I like the old Bixler 3 lug mounts.

    Try Curtis Tactical. He totally rebuilt my old RPB 380 can and made it useful.
    My name is actually Scott and I really do live in Texas.

    I know, not very creative but it is factual.

    By the way - Facebook is truly evil; resist the urge to participate.

    It'll probably not be in my grubby mitts for another 8 months considering how long F4's are taking....

    I can tell you the 2nd stage has baffles instead of the spirals however...look just like the ones in the M-11/9 SWD cans.

    I'm not to keen on modifying the 1st stage for a different mount, and even though I've got a 5/8-11 to 1/2-28 adapter somewhere, I try to avoid using them.

    I do, however, have a trashy blaster barrel I'm not too concerned about chopping and threading...

    Have you talked to Richard at BWE? He's a member here.

    Call a machine shop. Thread cutting isn't really specific to guns.
    If I was you
    I'd be worried about me.

    If you use a local machine shop, make sure they index from the Bore, not the outside.
