I have inherited a mill and lathe. As one of my first projects, I'm looking at machining my own upper for a 22LR Ruger pistol, instead of buy a Tactical Solution upper. I have taken apart my 22/45 and looked at all of the cuts I will have to make.
I have bought 1" diameter 6061-T6. I plan on using a barrel liner from Brownells.
Anyone tried to build their own 22LR upper for a Ruger? Do you have any tips other than its easier to buy a TS upper.
