Problem threading barrels into Micromag.

Just received a Micromag in the mail this afternoon. It came with a two piece WGP barrel which threads in flawlessly. But I've tried six other cocker threaded barrels and cannot get them to thread in.

What gives?

Read through that other post. Looks like I'll need to find someone with a tap or pick one up myself.

It can also be done in a lathe if you can't find some one with a tap maybe try a machine shop. I just did my buddies micromag in my lathe that had the same problem.

Thanks for all the info. Never occured to me to give Rainman a call.
