Video of barrel swap on ps90?

Hey JHS27275, I read your entire sticky on a ps90 barrel swap and thank you for that and for the pics.


However, while I am mechanically inclined, I'm not a gunsmith and can see myself screwing up the 16.1" barrel. I would like to salvage it if possible. For instance, I am unclear as how you drill out the blind pin without drilling through the barrel itself.

That said, since many people will be SBRing their PS90 rifles soon with these new barrels, can someone post a video of you actually doing it? There are none on youtube. Many here, including myself, would be extremely grateful.:)

The blind pin is a giant pain to drill out. Most people just chop the barrel off behind the FH. I had a machine shop at my disposal and still ended up chopping the barrel when I could not get it off. Broke a couple carbide bits before I said screw it. You really do not need a video installing. It as easy as putting a rod through a hole and torquing down from the front FH.
