I'm still amazed by this. That's worse than the very first time I tried to weld aluminum (not easy) and you can bet your a$$ it wasn't on someone else's AR.

This would be the minimum acceptable quality. Not an image of the best I could find but the minimum I would accept. If you use this as the "minimum acceptable standard", that guy DESTROYED your rifle. I suspect , based on the fact that he felt that was acceptable work, that he will not replace the barrel unless you take him to court.

IF he replaces the barrel, just send it to ADCO and have them do the pinning. You will barely be able to see the weld.

Good luck

I intend on doing my own once I figure out what compensator I going to put on it and it will not look like that . I plan on drilling and pinning it and a nice small TIG weld to the pin to comp. All I gotta say is that looks terrible and I would not recommend that shop or smith to anyone . That is going to have to either be cut off and rethreaded or a new barrel if it needs to get you to the legal barrel length . How long is that barrel ?

Stag sells an NJ compliant rifle maybe that can assist if they replace it, in doing the right job for you.

That's not as nice as the pinning-job on my Stag. I'm pretty sure both New York and New Jersey have very similar laws on this issue: barrel must either have nothing on the end (no threads) or have a muzzle break (not a flash hider - those are evil, apparently) pinned and silver-soldered to 1500 degrees.

What that 'smith did was ruin your barrel. Demand a replacement for what you have. Then, take it and your rifle to a gunsmith who cares about the quality of work he does and have them fit the new barrel and pin your muzzle break properly.

No doubt I agree 100%.

Here's a shot of the job on my PWS.

Clean.

I live in the free state of Texas where pinning muzzle devices is not necessary on any barrel over 16 inches. I found that picture and many others in a google search. It is not a picture of the best pinning job I could find. But I felt that, something like that, I would find "acceptable" as a minimum standard. If a gunsmith handed me that (the picture I posted) I would accept it and pay the man. What was done to the OPs gun was butchery at best and ham handed incompetence at worst. For a gunsmith to live in a state that requires pinning and welding of all muzzle devices to display of that level of ineptitude is simply unacceptable. That clown should not call himself a gunsmith. He needs throw away the gunsmithing DVDs he got and go to a real gunsmith school.
