    So, I bought a 14.5 inch barrel, and a vortex flash hider, and plan to install them on my rifle.

    But, I ran across a problem. A) I don't have a barrel wrench. But mostly B) When I try to use my drill press, it clicks off the circuit breaker. :D (We recently moved into an apartment, and the garages are annoyingly wired together.)

    So, I'm left with an assembled upper, and a spare 14.5 inch barrel and a vortex flash hider.

    Can anyone recommend someone who can do the work for me? :D I'd REALLY like to get it done quickly, like tonight or tomorrow.

    another tip those vortexes are made of hard steel harder than the phantoms you may want to use a carbide bit

    FYI. I've got the correct wrench, drill press and vise and some free time tomorrow night. PM if you need help.
