Ever tried to thread the barrel on an AR-15?

    While it is pretty amazing what SOME people can do with hand tools, I'm not sure that i would try it.

    Thanks. Looks like a good suggestion.

    I have never shipped a gun or gun part. I kind of hate to let anything out of my sight. (I also hate to deal with idiots at FedEx and UPS and the USPS.)

    But I may give it a try.

    You would only need to send the barrel or the upper.
    No need to worry, insure it for what a replacement barrel would cost you.

    Even that Midway USA guide is designed to work best when used in conjunction with a Lathe.
    A threading die and guide just makes it easier than having to make several passes with a threading tool.

    Lathe......and an experienced professional running it. It will save you the cost of a ruined barrel. True.
