    Building a new barrel shroud. This one is fluted. Used a 7/8 inch ball end mill to cut 8 flutes into this barrel shroud. It knocked 1/4 pound off the weight of the shroud. Your looking at it in a “rough” condition – no polishing , no clean up. The muzzel plug is threaded 12 threads per inch.

    The shroud on the completed gun you see is extra long and extra quiet.

    Shadoh:

    Yes the fluting was all done on the milling machine. Dont burn your garage, just buy some equipment! That lathe is a 12 inch Craftsman, and cost me $250 (I watched the want ads for a long time to get that deal! ). My milling machine is one of those cheap chinese mill/drills.
    I think I’ll build a new gun to go under that barrel shroud.
