Gap was .002, cycled fine at that too.  I don't think it was a FB because you can still feel  a little of the ridge where the barrel nut would seat.  Beats me why they added that disk, but the flash guard idea is probably a good possibility.  Looks to have been fired with it installed.  Maybe the blank rounds are susceptible to flashing off.  

Anything worth doing is worth doing well.

Can you still use the 3" shroud if you put a sleeve over a 3" barrel tube for barrel nut to seat against?

Very cool gun.

That's a pretty unique, and extremely cool 744 you have there Scorpio. Don't think that I have ever seen a Monson VH-3 ported shroud before either. Interesting piece of Hollywood history you've got there, and heck it's even a Dan Wesson! The icing on the cake is that it's functional as well.

Thank you so much for sharing the details, and the pictures with all of us. I definitely enjoyed reading about it.
