    Cut the loop off a Glock bore brush rod. Chuck in a cordless drill, smear Fritz on the brush, and run it in and out the chamber like you were honing it. Also works good polishing reloading die bores. It'll get it mirror. If a person doesn't have Fritz. Aluminum mag wheel polish, Meguiar's polishing compound etc. Rinse the polish out the chamber/bore with some mineral spirits. Works like a charm.

    There are a ton of videos on Youtube. Mostly if you are somewhat mechanically inclined and have a few tools you shouldn't have a problem. You can get specs from the manufacturer.

    I was just told I had to tell everyone where I got my info because of plagiarizing issues. I'm trying to be on the up and up.

    Curious; does anyone here know how precision shooters "match" bolt to barrel for extreme accuracy/precision? Is it literally, grab a few bolts and hope one is the perfect spec?

    Depends on what you want and how much you want to spend. I have used Ground Zero Precision's "Dead Bolt", one of the sponsors of TGT, and had very good results. My best advice is to research what you are looking for. If you search well enough you can often find good prices.

    On my only "precision AR" Precision Firearms reamed the barrel to headspace to the Grendel bolt I got as a package.

    Good info. I've wanted to build one for quite a while now and I'm trying to gather as much information as possible. Trying to find reliable and correct info is the hard part.

    Thank you

    New question. Looking for advice regarding mid-length gas system on an AR. What length works best to be hidden under a 10.5 inch handguard? Mid-length, carbine length, etc.? It will be assembled with an adjustable gas block.

    Carbine definitely, maybe mid. What’s the barrel length? Even with adj blocks, I’ll lean towards a longer gas system unless 300BLK, which always gets pistol.
