Anyone in the lowcountry help headspacing an AR barrel


New Member
Hi folks. I've finally got the lightweight barrel for my slidefire-.22 AR coming in, and need to headspace it with a 5.56 bolt and gauges so I can return it if there's a problem.

Anyone have 5.56 go and nogo gauges along with a mil-spec bolt they'd let me use for a few minutes?

Normally wouldn't bother until I got my own bolt, but AR parts are made to a spec and not to each other so all I need is a decent milspec bolt.

I've got a Colt field gauge and a PSA bolt that you could use. I'm going out of the country in the morning, but could meet you near or on the AF base anytime before 10am.
