Look into Muggy Weld for aluminium It will allow you solder/braze two pieces of aluminium using a propane torch.

Disclaimer: I have NEVER used Muggy Weld, so I can not attest to how well it works.

That seems like an interesting product. I'll look at it.

Would the most surefire approach be to just take it to a welding shop and pay someone to do a quick weld for me? It wouldn't take long and I'm sure the quality would be way superior to anything I could do.

Any ideas what that would cost me?

Having a professional do the work will be the fastest, and likely cheaper than Muggy Weld.

As to price... You will have to contact a shop.

If you're not opposed to paying a pro, yes, it'll be faster and much better-looking if a welder does it. You'll probably have to take it to a real shop; lots of "garage welders" have a machine at the house and the requisite skill, but since it's aluminum, it'll need to be done on a high-frequency machine, which aren't often found outside dedicated weld shops (they're pretty expensive).

Muggy weld will work for a feedneck, as will other "aluminum brazing" rods, but won't be anywhere near as strong as a true weld. Expect to put a lot of time practicing on scrap before your feedneck looks good, though (if that matters to you). And I wouldn't ever use it on a joint that needs to hold pressure.

lol I'm sorry I meant the feedneck. I'm saying I can weld it up the only thing is that the ano around the weld is going to be jacked because you can't weld through that.

DuraCoat is an epoxy firearms paint. Airbrushed or can sprayed (in some colors). Is pretty tough after it cures well. With some oven work, you can try ceracoat, or duracoat has a baked version as well. A weld is an excuse to do something different. Then there is powdercoat...

From personal experience I really like cerakote, we even have a member here who does great work with great rates. Apamburn, if you want to post here or pm me with a mock up of what you'd like we'll get it done for the cost of shipping.

Thanks for the generous offer Melvin. Here is a picture: literally just want to turn the feedneck horizontal. I'll have to make or buy a cram n jam feed gate which will mean the tube can't sit exactly flush against the body.

If you get the cram n jam sorted out first I'll be able to use that as a gauge for how much offset is needed.
