I got the barrel timed properly after I borrowed a friend‘s drill powered barrel shoulder shaving tool. I was able to get my rifle assembled last night as well. I ended up following Gun plumbers advice and used a bit of adhesive backed sandpaper wrapped around a small round file to gently enlarge the locking shoulder hole. It only took about 5-10 minutes carefully filing and measuring as I went.

Overall, I’m happy even though I was a little frustrated at first and may even order a second one while they’re cheap. I will have to weld ip the Mexico bit though... it just wouldn’t look right on a STG58.
