    I don't see this as an issue, and I would have gone this route myself if I did not have a PS90.

    Leigh, make sure to do your homework on how the P90 design works. The barrel is designed to have a slight fore-and-aft movement under spring tension and works similar to the Barrett m107 in the nature that it is a short recoil action.

    The barrel is inserted into the receiver from the action end where it travels through a spring contained within the receiver before protruding on the muzzle side of the receiver where is a left hand threaded muzzle adapter or pinned on barrel shroud is used to retain the barrel.

    Ian at Herron Arms actually re-uses the 16" PS90's factory shroud and his NR barrel sticks out just a few mm beyond, for virtually an unchanged appearance from the standard 16" models.

    That's a top tip my friend ! When I get a spare moment I'll have a look at what needs doing to it to make this project possible. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

    Just looked at this and had a chat with someone that has swapped them before and this looks pretty straight forward. I will order up the reamer, headspace gauge and blanks tomorrow. Cost for the conversion will be $550 + tax and shipping if req'd.

    Short 10.4" barrels and 1/2x28 muzzle adapters like the CMMG ones might be another consideration as well.

    Great! Please let us know when you are ready to accept the payment and how you prefer to receive it.

    What would be the cost for just the barrel? I don’t currently own a PS90 but I’ve wanted one since I got my PAL but I don’t want a restricted one. Obviously I’d have to pay for install and paperwork once I have the rifle but I don’t want to miss out on the opportunity.

    Leigh, I think this has good business potential for Dlask. Maybe somthing along the lines of the Scorpion R to NR swaps with the optional barrel shroud. Someone's gotta source some P90's in bulk!
