View Full Version : First build, first problem

June 11, 2007, 11:54
I'm building on a new DSA receiver. Have a very good reparked Imbel kit. Tried to hand turn in barrel to see how it would time. Only got it in 3-4 threads before it bound up to hand pressure. Barrel threads look heavily parked. Wire brush, valve compound? Don't want to screw this up. Thanks.

Do you have the receiver stub from the kit? If so, start twisting it on and off the barrel to clean up the threads, use the valve compund if necessary I guess.

got your old reciever stub? but a little compound on your old stub and work it until the park is gone on your barrel. i got a barrel stub to but alot of people dont so i use it on the receiver.

Nope, don't have the receiver stub. How about a brush and compound?

dip the threads of the barrel in birchwoodcasey bore scrubber, or vingear iirc it dissolves park. and a few drops on a qtip for inside the reciever, dont get it on anything else.

You also want to clean the vinegar off quickly as it will rust rapidly.
