    Wherever you get it done by make sure they aren't sending it to an engineering shop because although they will cut a great thread it may not be concentric to the bore if they are unaware which is most likely.Choose whoever it is wisely ive seen some really terrible treading jobs here.

    He has a lathe! That a bit of an understatement. It's a beast.

    Dominic Byrne is one of the best gun makers in Ireland and he will do it right. You will get him on Facebook. If you go to someone else make sure the put on a target crown and you will be ok.
    I have his number if you can't get him. But you will have to pay postage up and down.
    Regards Raymond
