    Default milling rec. stub off

    I am looking for someone with experience working on guns, who can mill off a receiver stub from the barrel of a 1928a1 thompson. I'm not looking for a freebie, but I don't want to pay an arm and a leg either. The barrel screws into the receiver. Also there is a forearm attaching iron on the bottom of the receiver stub that needs to be saved from the stub. Any takers? The local machineshop quoted me an hours work, at $80.

    Sir , I have done it , and you dont have to "mill" it off ---- what i did was buy a block of aluminum and a drill bit that was a few thousands of a inch smaller than the barrel dia. -(the area of bbl. directly forward of the compensator, ) and bandsawed this block of alum. in half after i drilled the hole in it , and placed the blocks around bbl. put the thing in a vise , and with a action wrench i unscrewed the bbl. off --- no big deal !

    As buzgn said, you'll need those tools to build it anyway.
