Anyone have a 1"x16 tap and die with handles I can borrow?

    I need them for only 10 minutes.:D

    Gotta chase some threads on some FALs I'm building.

    Those are specialty taps.
    If it's an Izzy barrel it will need the threads chased.
    If the barrel and receiver are metric flavored and ya just need to clean out the park just slather on some valve grinding compound and work them till it moves easy.

    I suppose it depends on who made the receiver as well. IIRC the DCI ones needed chased.
    DSA has such heavy park that the last 5 I built had to be worked with compound.
