AR-15 Armorer..If you need.

Guys,

I am a certified AR-15 armorer and can work on your AR platform if you are having issues with it. I am certified by Smith and Wesson. I can do most anything you want done to it BECAUSE if I don't Ponch will keep bustin my balls because Im being lazy, so bring all your stuff and I'll do anything you want to it.

If you are a certified Purina clinical phycologist dog whisperer able to do vehicle repair then please don't call.

So I guess threading a postban barrel for a brake/suppressor would be out of the question?

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

In reality I will under certain conditions, but normally I prefer not to because guys bring a barrel and then want to change the front site. Im not a fan of changing front sites from the old barrel to the new. PERSONALLY, I think buying the barrel you want with the front site you want already attached is the best way to go. I guess I should have said no front site changes and left it at that instead. Also, my vice attachment that I use to change barrels is out being "borrowed" at the time. And just fyi you DO NOT use the block that goes in the mag well when changing a barrel...OMG the tragedy of someone doing that.

I prefer to do inspection and cleanings with a full breakdown, change worn rings, springs etc. I like making your platform WORK PERFECTLY. Everyone has their thing and Im not running a shop. I like to work on them and I take pride in making it just right.

make sense?

Ok, Ill give that one to you

Nothing on an AR is all THAT difficult. But it is a little time consuming if you do it right and honestly treat it like it's yours and act like you may need it to save your own ass. I know guys way faster than I, with a knowledge base greater than I, and with the best tools you can buy and I wouldn't let them near anything I own. Im sure you know people like that too.

Bottom line, I do it on the side because I like too, I aint making much money from it that's for damn certain, and if you don't want to have me touch your stuff that's cool. If you want it inspected, cleaned, corrected and made as close to perfect as I can get it then PM me...or don't.

Yes, I'll change it. You'll have to wait until I get my claw back to hold the upper in place. It's being borrowed. I'll PM you when I have it back.

As comical as you are intending to be, I sincerely don't care. It means nothing to me what any persons opinion is in relation to anything I do. So have fun because I errored and capitalize on it.

I'm sure that mentality coupled with this thread will lead to much success as an AR "armorer".

maybe you missed something from before. I don't make any money at it. I do it only because I like to do it. It is NOT a business and I never said at anytime this was a business or was I looking to score off someone from this board. I said before I don't make much money at it. The reason being, since you bring it up(and since its a business all of a sudden), I HAVE NEVER ASKED FOR A SINGLE PENNY FROM ANYONE THAT I HAVE DONE WORK FOR. I asked for the recovery of needed parts. Anytime I've gotten anything beyond that it was not asked for and given as appreciation. I seperate business and hobby (for lack of a better term to some extent). So, I errored because I was doing two things at once and not reading attentively (I realize that's no excuse) when I responded about the Siaga. Sorry, my mistake.

So please feel free to dog out my appearant "business" to whom ever you want. And understand I am not being rude to your response, for I understand your perspective. You, and maybe some others, missed my intent to offer up my efforts in a positive manner so I could do something I like to do.

I'm just being an asshole and harassing you. I'm done now, sorry to help fuck this thread up. Seriously though, I'd have the mods delete this and start a new one in the For Sale forum so no one can post in it.

Sorry for being a dick, I really had no right/reason.
