does anyone know of a M14 gunsmith or machine shop that can chop a 22” heavy barrel to 18.5” and then rethread the muzzle threads to 5/8x24? And enlarge the gas port if necessary?

You usually can't thread 5/8x24, not enough metal. 9/16x24 is probably the largest you can do, but that limits your muzzle device options.

Me, I'd buy a new barrel to my "spec" an leave that barrel alone. This sounds like it's gonna be expensive if the barrel is nothing special and much head ache. See if the company that made the barrel will do the job. I forsee lots a work for an expensive tooled pipe.

As for adding metal treaded tube and with glob of JB Weld on to the barrel.
