Good news on Enmey breach threading

So, thanks to Yoda for pointing me in the right direction of the right tap, I was able to order one online.
I took my three powertubes and the tap to a machinist, who did further research.
He made a dummy as a test to get the right pre-drill size right.
Just spoke to him, and they should be ready tomorrow.

I am letting him keep the tap. So if anybody, after seeing how my Enmeys come out, want to get this done, you will be able to send your powertube to him.
I'll get all the particulars, price etc, tomorrow.

what threads did you have done, im guessing just Ion threads?

could this not just be done with a drill press?

Yes, Ion threads. The machine shop guy said he did the research to make sure he made the hole the right size before tapping the threads.
I don't have a drill press.

It's done. Looking great.
Will post some pics tomorrow.
Anybody who wants to do this, should get hold of Bob, at Bob's tool and die.
Sales@bobstooldie.com
$40 for a single one. But will do a better deal on multiple pieces.
He can also cut the hole for the ASA in an aluminum body, if you prefer not to do it yourself.

This is the first two.
The red one needs some details painted.
Number three is waiting for its body to arrive.

For the money, I think it's worth it for such a reliable mechanical gun.
$130 for the Enmey.
$35 for the Lapco Tactical body on EBay
$9 for the Feedneck. Search online
$40 to get the breach threaded.

Total: $215
Really. An unbeatable deal for such a great gun, new.

Wow,pretty great deal for some custom machine work
Be hard pressed to build a mech Ion for that cost
I can finally buy an Enemy now that you really knocked the fugly out of it
Nice choice on bodies too
