    Hello,

    Fairly new to this site, so don't really know how to navigate. So I'm just going to put the question out there and see what kind of answers I get.

    The question is: I just bought a new AR-15, and now the next step (for me) is to get the barrel threaded, and then get a suppressor for it. Does anyone know right off the top of their head how much the threading part will cost? And where about I can get this done.
    Currently I live in Molalla, OR. And I'm really not looking to travel a long distance to get it done. So Just around the ball park of the cost for now will be fine.

    Thanks
    Koda

    If it has a flash suppressor on it, it's already threaded at 1/2 - 28? Unless you have a somewhat rare match/heavy barrel, seems like.

    Koda,
    I am in the O.C. area and can beat their prices by a long shot.
    If interested, shoot me a PM.

    Could you put a .578-28 RH (37/64) thread on the end of a Kriss barrel? The narrow section where the barrel shroud slips over is just a bit too big to take a 37/64 die so it would need to be turned on a lathe I believe

    can cut pretty much any thread you want, RH or LH.
    Shoot me a PM though, don't want hi-jack Koda's initial posting.
