CZ Barrel Cooler on Micro/K mod CZ?
« on: October 07, 2017, 02:58:55 PM »
I had the CZ micro K HBI modification done to my Scorpion.  I have a $10 knurled nut on the end to protect the  threads.  Would it be worth cutting the cooler down to fit the barrel?  I would have to get some kind of washer under the end nut to retain the cooler as well.  Is this going to cool things that much more?  Or a waste of time and something that could loosen up and come off?  I haven't noticed the aluminum guard heat up even after 30 rnds in 5 secs.

I don't think the barrel cooler is going to make a meaningful difference.  That's just my opinion of course.

Then again, I machined some ribs in my barrel extension right where the bulk of the heat is going to appear in it.

Much like how a tommy gun barrel is made.

Totally not needed, its just a 9mm, you have it freefloated in an aluminum hanguard which doesnt hold in heat like the polymer. The barrel is air cooling as good as an ar15 barrel and you dont see coolers running on those...

Good point...more money to gun grabbers as well. It is not about the money, but getting it to someone that can use it.  Someone will buy.
