    I am looking for someone local in San Antonio that can pin and weld a muzzle brake on an AR-15 barrel. I would like to have this done this weekend. I appreciate any help with this.
    Thanks!

    I would check Modern elite firearms. They have ar builders classes so they may be able to do it.

    I called them yesterday and they want to charge a lot for this and it's a three week turnaround.

    More than I will pay, and that long turn around time makes it a no go as well.

    Actually I called Armed in America and they have the 3 week turnaround. I called Modern Elite and they don't do pin and weld jobs. The told me to try Sinner Mass

    Three week turn around is actually pretty good for a busy shop - and since we don't know your price point, no one can tell if they have a viable option for ya.

    Well, being this is a community with members I'm looking for someone local, not a business, that would help without wanting a profit. I've lived in San Antonio for three years and I don't know many people here. Trying to meet some others with common interests too.

    IOW, you're wanting someone to do it for free, or so cheaply as to be free. In the meantime, keep that barrel away from a lower - put 'em together and you have an unregistered SBR.
    I guess we have different ways of making friends. I gladly pay friends a reasonable amount to do professional work for me. Cheap work usually isn't worth the price that you pay.

    I’ve got a DeWalt drill and Hobart wirefeed.

    I won’t be held responsible for any damage done to the barrel or grinding the welds down. You’ll have to buy your own can of spray paint to touch it up afterwards.

    Also will not guarantee proper alignment.



    That’s what you tend to get from “I know a guy that can do that”.
