I admit that the guy that bored mine out wasn't a machinist as he claimed to be (and many a paintball player gave him positive reviews...sigh) and left a LOT of machine marks during the boring. This made the issue of the thin wall even worse. However, think about the theoretical maximum thickness:

0.875 OD
0.753+ ID
(0.875-.753)*.5= possible wall thickness of 0.061"

Now, factor in the trapezoidal thread: ACME 0.860-1/14
Assuming no undercutting is done (I don't have phantom barrel atm), which there should be, then we have the following:

[(0.860-1/14)-.753]*.5= a wall thickness under the thread of 0.0177857"

Now that's pretty damn thin. I'm not comfortable with that. But wait, there's more!

There's that o-ring groove, isn't there... Someone put some calipers on there and report back.

the thinnest OD result from boring for a freak insert I've ever seen is with Spyder barrels. Never seen one break though.

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...
