I need a little help.

A lot of parts arrived today including my barrel. Its a 16" Olympic Arms BBL (my upper is a Daniel Defense). I'm having trouble seating the barrel into the upper. It gets stuck RIGHT before the pin on the barrel seats into the notch in the upper - maybe 1/8th inch. And I mean stuck stuck. If I seat it in forcefully, it will be nearly impossible to remove. At first, the barrel wouldn't go in more than half way and noticed the Teflon coating was rubbing off, so I took it all off and polished it and it still gets stuck. I also tried oil/grease. Any thoughts? Is it just a new barrel, new upper, never been assembled, not the same company? I don't want to muscle it up and screw myself.

Just to rule it out can you take a measurement of the threaded end on the barrel and the pocket in the receiver? Just to make sure that the receiver has enough room to fit the barrel.

Much thanks to everyone who helped with my snug barrel. I used a little rubbing compound and patience to make it fit. It seats perfectly with one tap of a plastic hammer now.

Shes not done, I'm still waiting on the bolt carrier group and armorers wrench, but this is my first dream SUR. Hope you like it.

Really well done Ninja! I am glad that you were able to get the barrel in place. The build looks great so far! Keep us informed, PLEASE!

The stupid pre-ban mags I ordered came in flat grey. Yes, they will be painted black.

OperationParts.com wins again! It took them four hours to get my merchandise in the mail. Same day shipping goes a long way with me. Highly recommended to anyone starting an SUR-15 build!

Super bored...........

Nice build, I must have missed this because its in the diy section and not the ar section.. I really like the M&P lowers , I have used four of em now and not had a problem with one of em. Fit and finish has been 100% consistent even compared to my factory M&P rifle.
Nice work, I bet you cant wait to go shoot it

You said it! Fit and finish are perfect as expected with S&W. And yes, I can't wait to shoot it!!! I'm going to wait for a really nice day after the snow melts so I don't have to trudge through snow and ice to put up targets.
