How to measure gun barrel diameter

Tacticool22 requires precise measurements of your gun barrel to ensure our custom gun parts properly fit your firearm. This is ONLY for custom work.  Any standard order does not need any measurement If you provide incorrect or fractional measurements, your adapter may not fit correctly. To re-machine your part, a $20 fee will be assessed, which includes shipping the fixed part back to you. WARNING: Before measuring, make absolutely sure the gun is unloaded. The gun’s action should be open during the cleaning process. Also, be sure that no ammunition is present in the area.
