Thanks guys. I still have plans to thread the barrel. I have bought a pipe and socket to make a barrel removal tool but have yet to make the tool. Soon though...

Made the tool and got the barrel out. The tool making part didn't go as planned, but the barrel is out and will be dropped off to be threaded next week!

Picked up the CX4 from the 'smith last week and go it back together!
Here it is wearing my Octane 45 can.

Well, last range trip I took the CX4 out. Loaded up a mag, chambered a round, pulled the trigger and nothing happened! Doh! Ok, bad primer I think to myself. Eject the round, and there isn't a dent in the primer! I swear I heard the hammer fall. Ok, so I try again. Same thing. No quiet boom and no dent in the primer. Ah dag nabit! I must have screwed something up during the reassembly. Today I got some time to look at it. The bolt to barrel gap was well over .030", or my largest feeler gauge. That surely is too much headspace. So I take the barrel nut back out and see if I can gently encourage the barrel in a bit further. It doesn't move, or if it does, it's only a few thousandths. I reinstall the barrel nut and measure the gap again. Same thing. So I determine that the bolt contacts the barrel nut. Turns out I didn't have it screwed in fully and it wasn't letting the bolt fully close! A few more turns with my homemade pipe-turned-barrel nut-removal tool and a loud pop in my shoulder and the bolt fully closes and goes into battery. The only way I could think to test it without firing a round (in my garage eek!) Was to put a piece of tape over a spent casing and see if the firing pin breaks the tape. Well it did, so I think I'm good to go! I'll update again once I get to shoot it again.

That seems to happen in occasion. Often when I lowball it's just to see what happens and I never expect to win!

Thumbs up congratulations!

that is a great looking gun. The Berettas are the best pistol carbine on the market today. I always liked them and would indulge myself if I didn't already have a PC4 carbine. Since this is Ruger web page, I like the Ruger best.....but the beretta is close second!

Nice pick.

Sounds like you could have had a worse day.

I like mine, it's light and easy to carry & clean.

Shoots great!

Nice pickup. I have this in 9 and 45. I am looking for one in 40 sw. I love them. They are very accurate. I have a crimson trace on the 45 I have the 9 mm with only irons. I love times like yesterday when I used my iron sighted Storm Carbine to outshoot 3 30 year olds with other 9 mm carbines one of which had a leupold delta pint and two had crimson trace laser sights. I shot at 25 yards into 2 inches and the others shot into 3 inches. Nice to be an old guy outshooting younger guys.
