Anybody know if that stuff at brownell's might be locally available at a hardware store or welding supply store? (what is the name of it again??)

"fusion" and I've never seen it offered anywhere else. D.

Oddly enough i've seen it at a computer store called micro center. Do you plan on using this to solder on a muzzle brake? If so i'm not sure it has the minimum required amount of silver which I believe is 56%.

Yeah, I was gonna use it to solder the brake, but I wanted to get it now.
2 More questions:
Which fusion paste is it-- STL 1205, STL 1260, or DMX 1260-750?
Does anybody know if Brownell's is considered a "fast" shipper?

Brownell's ships UPS, FEDEX, or USPS Priority Mail. The fastest is overnight obviously, but the cheapest and 2d fastest is 3day Priority Mail. They (meaning Brownell's) do ship rapidly. Their customer service is great.
Just tell 'em how you want it sent and next thing you know, POW!, there it is.
I'm like you - I hate to wait!
BTW: any of the Fusion pastes you mentioned meet the criteria for the ATF minimum 1,100 degree melting point. Brownell's has them all.
Scavenger: It's the melting temp that makes the difference to the BATFags, not the silver content. 1,100deg melting point, which the Fusion paste meets the criteria.

1260 is thicker and likely to be all pushed out of the threads when you screw the brake on. 1260 is better for soldering two parts together that are not a perfect fit, as it fills gaps better.

:) Just go to any refrigeration supply house
and they will carry silver solder and the paste. I have used the paste and the silver solder in refrigeration service work for years.
