JT is right on the money, it's 1100-degree silver solder.  That's a fuk-ton of heat, even with heat-paste to prevent the heat traveling down the barrel

I’ve silver soldered a lot of copper to thin steal/brass that was my thought too.

Workable for the moment....but not done. I had no experience with "FAT" rifle handguards, but I like the fat carbine hanguards more than the skinny M4 style so I thought it would be fine. Turns out they are pretty ugly. They also made the A2 grip look too small so I threw a magpul on there. FH is also temp. I have my spare manimal on it for now until I pick up a birdcage from my friend. At some point ill grab a USGI shiny handguard and A2 stock to swap to make it more correct.

 Fully charged Batteries on a 36 volt golf cart with 4gauge connector wires will do a creditable D.C. welding job with 1/8 inch rods or coat hanger wire with heavy jumper cables or standard welding cables. I used this rig repairing windmill towers, as a young man. Just don't use so much juice that the golf cart won't get you back to the barn.

Woohoo got some parts today. Ive had this damn FSB off way too many times now with crappy tools lol. Starting to look a little rough around the taper pin holes.  Feeling much more OG now with the proper hanguards and grip.
