Here is a copy of the email I received from Short Action Customs early this AM. I sent them a follow-up email last night.
"Our scheduled will be to accept FNAR's for barrel threading until FEB 27th. The first week of March we will thread that group of barrels. After the FEB 27th cut off it will be at least 4 months before we schedule to run them again. Our web site is being updated and the current prices for work are as follows.
FNAR barrel threading $200 (5/8-24 thread standard)
Custom knurled thread protector $65
FNAR trigger job $70 (Adjust pull weight to 2.5lbs.)
PWS PRC brake $110
Return shipping for rifle $60
Please use the Service Spec Form from the web site and include that with your rifle. It is the blue lettered "here" link on the Contact page.
We can install and time your muzzle device with the barrel threading at no additional cost. The customer will be responsible for any adjustments needed to the gas system because of said muzzle device.
The brake we recommend and have had zero issues with is the Primary Weapons Systems, Precision Rifle Compensator.
For our trigger job, we only adjust the pull weight down to 2.5lbs. The trigger will have the same amount of creep but will be smoother and far lighter than the factory 4-5lbs. pull. Trigger jobs can be preformed at anytime buy simply sending in your trigger group only. One day turn around on the work and $70 shipped."
Yes, I will get the trigger worked too.Cool. You gonna have 'em smooth up fire control (trigger), too? I decided I will.
Mine's all packed and shipped off as of today. The deadline is coming, so make sure if you're looking to thread your FNAR barrel that you get your rifle sent in time to arrive by the 27th!
Im sending mine in the plastic case and original outer box it came in.Talk to me about packing and shipping. Did you use the case that came with your rifle to ship it off? Get another box? Did you use USPS? I've never shipped a rifle before.
