Those are the same instructions I read.
Not sure about the wanna be? I have an SBR and I am three months into the wait for the approval of my second SBR tax stamp.
I have a 14.5" middy and had an AAC flash hider pinned. I think it would have looked alot better soldered.
If the finish is messed up because of the high heat that would be a good reason to steer clear? Have you used the heat stop and chaulk method? If it does not work well then looks like pinning is the way to go.
I don't see the point in spending $200 for a 14.5" bbl. I would want to go shorter for an SBR especially with the perm FH as an option. I wanted at least one non SBR to make travel easier.
How would it ruin the value of your gun? If the heat stop and chaulk work then I would think it would make the gun easier to sell.
