1biggun, Can you single point thread it on your lathe?
possably but its a lot of work for me. my lathe is a 1932 south bend 9" so im some what limited but I have all the gears. i have never cut internal threads on it.
have the proper thread tap of the buffer tube and OSI jig, you would have to cut the hole to the perfect dimensions, I could cut the threads
my tap is not a cheap one
the only problem I have is you are using steel, I have only used aluminum 0% DSA and 80% Tannery blanks.
so is it a thin peice of steel I can clamp to my jig and tap the threads if so its possible for me to do. I am out of town right now and on the road so if time is not essential
send me a PM to discuss further
yea its going to be steel an id hate to have some one mess up a good tap if things didnt work right.
I have been looking at the ACE pig nose addapters for aboout $20 an may be able to make one of them work. I cant find ay were if there steel or aluminum. I was just hoping some one made a nut or some thing that was thicker. so I clould just weld it to a home made pistol trunion.
im going to have to some research. is that thread only used on the AR 15 an m16 recivers is it special?? I need to get my fastener catologs out an see if there is any thig lese using that thread.
I have not ruled out modifying a buffer tube as well an attaching it some how differant may with a sick screw downt he middle into a bored hole in a pistol trunion or some thing like that.
