Alright so if you remember the other "Tracking" thread I posted a while ago after ordering a drop in replacement barrel system from Bushmaster you remember where it ended up. Backorder dates became an insulting moving target. Fortunately crmann came through and I was able to obtain one that way. This thread will track my barrel service with ADCO to cut it down to a 12.5" and modify the components to function properly.

5/11/11 Paid crmann for Barrel
5/12/11 crmann shipped package
5/16/11 Package arrived, inspected (looked great btw)
5/17/11 Barrel repackaged and sent to ADCO
5/20/11 Package arrived at ADCO
11:23am Steve @ ADCO confirmed receipt/service request via email

So far so good!

$65 includes Cut, Crown, Threading, and Gas Component adjustments

5-7 days is their stated turn around times
Wow! That's a kickass price! Now, who want's to sell me their spare barrel assembly cheap??? :D

Heck, I might send the one I have in if the work looks good when you get it back. Can't wait to see pics/get your impressions...

Now that is encouraging. I have always heard very positive things about them.

That's an embarrassingly fast turn around. I am about 8 months deep on my custom barrel job. Suffice to say I won't be using my current barrel mfg or publicly post his company on any forum to give them more 'advertising'.

I have yet hear any complaints about their service or work. I'll post detailed pictures and range reports when I get it all together. The barrel system should arrive Fri or Sat, and my Form 1 is still pending (about a month since the check was cashed).

Sorry to hear that nagrom3, I hope it all works out.

With the service I've received so far, I would happily advertise ADCO for custom work.

If everything checks out once you've got it in hand, I'm sold and will send my 16.5" in for conversion to 14.5" pinned (assuming they do pinning).

Hey guys,

DSM was kind enough to remind me to make assure that all legal parties were aware that everything is in proper order.

Barrel is on it's way back from ADCO
My Form 1 is in Pending Status
Looking to have Orion engrave the reciever

The Barrel will be immediately left with one of my FFLs upon arrival, it will NOT touch the reciever

Thanks, DSM!
You never know who's watching, Keep it legal folks!

Yes they do pinning. I've had them do that a few times and they do very good and quick work.

5/27/11 Package arrived from ADCO! That was total of 6 business days from the time the barrel hit their shop to my door step!

I can't say enough about their customer service and work. The Barrel came out EXACTLY how I'd requested it, right down to where I wanted the barrel refinished up to so as not show a break in the finish. It is now sitting in my FFL's safe until my Form 1 arrives. till then I won't be able to assemble or test fire, but I am fully confident in their work.







Next Tracking Thread will be for Orion's Engraving work on my reciever.

That looks great!! If I didn't know better it looks like it was ment to be that way.

Thanks for sharing the info you did in this thread. Can't wait to hear how it works. After seeing all the short barrels and the results after finally put together make me want to try it.

I'm sure the wait to complete the process will be agonizing.
