    Nice man! I was curious as to how you would effectively set the headspace with the threads but I like the sleeve/lock nut/bearing looking device you have there. Just out of curiosity what sort of tool are you going to use to snug that without marring it up?

    I'm surprised that no one has come up with a lever setup similar to many MG barrel set up's. Have I missed that here , or has it not been done yet? It seems the collar with a take down lever would be just the ticket and should be fairly easy to do, especially on a relatively simple platform like the AK's and AR's.

    Just hashing it over in my head, it seems that it wouldn't be all that hard of an operation to accomplish,,,,Damn,, wish I still had access to machines nowadays so I could experiment with that. It seems like a simple preset collar with a take down lever and and ex-centric/cam to lock the barrel in place should be doable with out any major challenges it would seem to me. A fixed collar, a lever with a cam lobe, and a properly notched barrel,,,Hummmmm,,,should work.

    Anyone tried it???

    A spanner wrench. 1Biggun and I talked back and forth about going with either a hole or slot type spanner wrench to snug up the lock nut. I left them plain so he could figure out which one would be best once he got his hands on them and a wrench of his choice.

    Thanks! Makes sense now because looking at the picture I thought there's no way he is taking vice grips to that piece of art LOL

    There's some company,,Snap -On I think ,,that makes a strap wrench with a square drive for a ratchet,,or a torque wrench to snap into. That would do it. Not sure what max torque might be on them though.

    Multiple slots milled in the end might look kinda "trick" though, just find some some standard 2 or 4 tip spanner socket for spacing and mill till it looks pretty.

    Here,, I ran out to the shop and grabbed one of my Mercruiser tools so it will better show what I mean. It's big enough it will slip over a 7/8 barrel and with a bit of reaming where the tab is welded on the end,, a 1+" barrel will slide through, that's the ID of the tube, sorry didn't have verniers handy, just a letter opener ruler.

    If ya think it's something that might work for ya,, let me know and I'll mail it off to you and you can give it a try and see how it works for ya. And should you need to open up the hole in the tab a bit,,No Problem,,,,,go ahead just don't exceed the ID.

    Let me know or PM, either one. Sorry for the crappy pics,,, I really NEED a new camera,,,gerrrrrr!!!

    I think I still have your address in my inbox,, 1biggun.

    NOT ALL THE BARRELS WILL HAVE LOCK NUTS . IN FACT MOST WILL BE SET UP WITH OUT . THE 1" BLANK DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH DIAMITER TO HAVE A SHOULDER MACHINED IN .

    FROM WHAT i SEE ABOUT 50 -80 POUNDS OF TORQUE SHOULD BE ENOUGH . i SEE GUNS RUNNING SAVAGE AN REMINTON 700 WITH NUTS ANY WERE FROM 35 BOUND TO OVER 100 .

    i DONT PLAN ON THESE BEING QUICK CHANGE AS MUCH AS JUST CHANGEABLE . THESE GUNS NEED TO BE ACCURATE SO THYE WILL NEED TO BE SCREWED IN TIGHT AN HELD CORRECTLY . iM USRE I COULD DO A LEVER OR BUTTON OR SET SCREW BUT THATS NOT WHAT iM AFTER . A VICE AN A SPANNER IS NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL AN iF I HAD TO DO IT ON THE ROAD i HAVE A HITCH MOUNBT VICE OR IM SURE I COULD MAKE A TOOL. HELL A GREAT BIG CRESEANT WRENCH ON THE RECIVER AN A SPANNER ON THE BARREL AN YOU CAN CHANGE IT ON THE FLOOR

    Here's a type of adjustable spanner that we use at work. We carry all different sizes, and either flat pawl or pin style. The pin style is easier, because you just need anywhere from 1-3 small holes around the circumference of the nut to lock the pin into. Pins are anywhere from 1/8" to 3/16" in the sizes that would be appropriate for this purpose. Proto Tool has a bunch of different types and sizes, as well as standard handle, 1/4" drive, or 3/8" drive, so you can put your torque wrench on them.
