Hi,

FNG here, but an active duty tanker. Lookin to build and got a few questions:
1. Receivers, LRB the best or do I keep looking?
2. Barrels, GI or Criterion?
3. Finally, can I install and headspace a barrel at home with handtools?

Tanks!

Receiver LRB good to go
Barrel Krieger Chrome Molly 1/10 twist. Expensive but well worth it.
Build it with hand tools No there are special tools required. Best left to an experienced smith.

Word of advice start ordering the receiver and barrel now. They will take some time to get and you dont have to pay until it is finished. Be patient and vent here. There are a lot of members that can give you advice along the way.
PS thanks for the service and driving that tank around for my freedom.

WELCOME to the FORUM !!! Thank-you for your service to our country ! IMHO...LRB is top shelf....so is Kreiger...let a riflesmith do the barrel...would you want me to fix your tank?

Welcome aboard, Thorack, no problem asking your qestion here but it would get better attention in the Firing Line. This forum is customarily for welcomes but other things are done here as well, I just want you to get a broader response. I am sure you will enjoy forums and being here with us. Have fun.
