How much did you pay to have your muzzle device pinned and welded?
As a gunsmith, I often get asked how much it costs to pin and weld a flash hider. The answer depends on the specific gun and flash hider in question. In general, though, the process usually costs around $50-100.
The first thing to keep in mind is that pinning and welding a flash hider is a permanent modification. Once it’s done, there’s no undoing it. That means you need to be sure that you want to make this modification before going ahead with it.
Flash hiders can serve many different purposes, from helping to reduce muzzle rise to simply making your gun look more aggressive. If you’re not sure what purpose you want your flash hider to serve, then it’s worth doing some research before making a decision.
A gunsmith will charge $75 to pin and weld a flash hider. This is a common job that is often requested by people who live in states with strict gun laws. By welding the flash hider in place, it becomes permanently attached to the barrel and therefore cannot be removed without breaking the barrel.
It depends on the type of flash hider. Generally, it will cost about $50 to have a gunsmith pin and weld a flash hider to your barrel.
There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the amount of welding and/or pinning required to secure a flash hider will vary depending on the make and model of the firearm. However, most gunsmiths agree that a flash hider should be welded or pinned in place securely so that it cannot accidentally come loose and create a safety hazard.
If you’re not comfortable doing the welding or pinning yourself, it’s best to leave the job to a qualified gunsmith. They will have the experience and expertise necessary to do the job properly so that your firearm is safe to use.
