Looking for Machinist for prototype

Post by JonathanW » Wed Jan 02, 2019 2:21 pm


I am working on custom prototype rifle with special ammunition, my main local machinist retired and I have barrel needed to be chambered and a few parts needed to be turned on a lathe.

Looking for a machinist local or nationwide with a quality lathe to machine the parts and if possible chamber the barrel.

I have CAD files and can skype for more information about the project.

A signed NDA is required and information provided is also patent pending related so I’d like to keep key information private. Also some example photos of previous work would be appropriated

Thank you for suggestions.

Happy new year

Same guy...he is the best. He re-threaded my AAC 1/2"x28 brakes to 14x1LH so I could suppress my AK's, they came out perfect. He is always busy, so it might take a few weeks for turn around. Send him a message on Instagram, that's how I got in touch. I think he said he's threaded over 18,000 barrels and no baffle strikes...

He’s a good guy, he just finished threading my Steyr aug barrel


He’s a little to busy at the moment for the project when I asked for the custom bolts, but I have a few leads so far on machinists
