making an IMM length barrel

Recommended Posts

I tried searching but haven't been able to find what I'm looking for.

 

Was wondering if there is enough bearing surface on a 5" SVI hybrid barrel to be able to machine back and thread it to mimic a factory IMM hybricomp length barrel.

 

I'd like to build my own version of an IMM top end, and was hoping someone may have gone down this path before.

 

Any advice is appreciated.

My understanding is there is only 0.5" of locking surface on a 5.4" threaded infinity barrel. Meaning you will run out of lock up/bearing surface trying to get it to the IMM length.
