M1 Carbine barrel change
ive got a complete carbine that seriously needs a new barrel and a receiver that also needs a new barrel.
i would like to diy it. getting a barrel, wrench, block doesnt seem to be the issue its finding a damn reamer to finish the headspacing!!
brownells has regular reamers but you gotta continually mount and dismount the barrel. while its a lot of work its not undoable. does it hurt to keep torquing it down and undoing to ream and check headspace until its right?? or should i try and find a nearly non-existant pull reamer??
price of getting both barrels mounted is the same as buying the tools and diy. i prefer diy its more fun and expands my knowledge base of firearms
