Freak boring my kp3 barrel

Okay my KP3 came in today, and as I was looking at a freak barrel wondering if it would be a good color match, it hit me. I have the inserts so why not bore the kp3 back? Has anyone else done this yet?

Most won't because the stock back is not a big bore. You can't use any insert bigger than the original bore, so only tighter than .685 and if the bore is off by a hair (.002 not uncommon) you may be limited to as tight as .683 or smaller in your kit.

That was my concern, so one of my first questions to nerve in here who does them was if he could bore the whole thing out to a .689 or so initially and hone it well then freak bore the back from there

Getting to the point a freak barrel is likely quite cheap compared to this.

Think so? Dang... Because I mean I do have a freak barrel, I just wanted one that matched without having to drop 100 on a new barrel

The key to having this done is if there will be enough thickness left on the KP barrel back to retain some strength. Typically, the machinist would need the inside diameter of the barrel back, the barrel back length, and probably most importantly, the outside diameter of the barrel back at it's most narrowest part. I seem to recall somewhere on here where a person who does this type of thing posted the minimum requirements/measurement sizes to evaluate whether it will work or not. You may be able to find it by doing a search.
