    Likely your dad being a toolmaker (or the like) could make such a part and assemble it.
    Bieber music mentioned supports that..

Still think that I'm a teenager? Doctor told me in 2013 I had five years to live, do the math. I'm too stubborn and crotchety to go peacefully into that good night.

    My Grandad was the T&D maker. My other GD was a plant manager in a paint factory. Dad was a tinkerer. Wasn't hardly anything he couldn't fix in a pinch.

    Unlike many, I live life, not just take up space living it. And I have repaired many a gun using hand tools to shape the part needed, polishing them and heat treat them without the use of electric tools. Try it some time, I'm sure that you appreciate your machines far more than you do now.

    Not sure what Grizzly combo machine you're looking at but all of the combo machines I've seen run at too high rpm for single point threads.Any decent gunsmith that does rebarreling could do the barrel installation.I would not use a method that requires welding.If you have no experience rebarreling I would not make rebarreling a broomhandle my first attempt.

    Tapping and tread cutting I prefer to do by hand. I feel that I have more control that way.

    Some times I drill in the drill press with the part fixtured..and then use the drill press chuck, turning tap by hand so the DP becomes a tapping head.

    Used to do a lot of DP, mill and lathe tapping under power but not for gun work.

    Who is off topic now? I test my water frequently and the nitrates are creeping up slowly.

    Sounds like fertilizer contamination from Farm runoff. Though, it could be septic as well. Do you have well water or city, town or county water? Do they check the bacteria levels as well?

    Thank you for your insight.

    I have personal mistrust of this technique. With welding there is always a chance of voids and inclusions that can weaken the joint.
    I watched a video of a P08 restoration in which pitted areas were built up by micro laser welding, it looked like perfect build up beads in rows but done in microscopic size. I was very impressed and have thought a lot about it, like, what does that cost to have done? The Luger showed zero signs of the previous rust.
    I assume the way I'd want to do it would be threaded to a shoulder and then welded by this method to eliminate the shoulder line, seems like it could be done invisibly that way. Glued liner seems cheapo to me, I wouldn't own a gun like that myself, maybe good enough for others though. Threaded to a shoulder even showing the joint would be far better I think.

    I would never use Redmans for anything. He is dishonest and will hold your parts for like a ransom. They are not worth it. I had bad experience with them. Never again.

    So, the questions that comes to mind are, if one had a beat German Mauser C96 upper, formerly owned by the Chinese, would it be feasible to drill it out and thread it like the photo shows. Then, using a length of a M1 .30 Carbine barrel, turn said stub, and thread it to fit said Mauser upper to make a shooter pistol? Barrel stubs are available from Numrich. I doubt that the owner of one of these beaters would care less about hiding the seam.

    Curious to hear your responses.
    remember don bell talking about how when he was bringing guns in from china back when it just opened up he had a line on tens of thousands of c96's he told us that in china there were caves full of guns that had been there's for years and if he took all of them they were $2.50 each but he had blown his wad on other things and he could not find a backer to go in with him so back in the day when all them rusted up junkers cam it that was the deal

    Some time ago I acquired a Chinese surplus C-96 with a horrible bore. I chose to have it re-rifled for the 9mm.
    Just an option.
