The visual inspection of the chamber threads looked cleaned. Although it was almost impossible to inspect all the threads with my fingernail due to the burr getting in the way. I was able to inspect about half of them.civ wrote: But you'll have to find a machine shop with a lathe and a qualified operator to fix it.
It's just a question of setting the carrier on the lathe and running through the threads (at the proper settings) to rectify them with a tool.
I'd say no more than 15/20' work, but that's not a given.
I would not recommend any other course of action unless you are highly qualified and experienced in using hand tools.
eg: any experience in small die manufacturing?
Fortunately I have a friend who is experienced in tooling and machining who will take a look at it. He said chasing the thread may not be necessary, but that was based on the photo I sent him. The bump is very minuscule. I'll have a better idea when I meet him today at lunch.
I know we discussed this earlier in the thread, but how much resistance should there be when threading this in? When I remove those 4 springs (I understand these are required for alignment) there are zero issues with threading the carrier. It glides through the threads effortlessly.
