    Sorry to hear that Lou, wish I was in a position to clean it up for you.
    A lot of “Smiths” will get a muzzle concentric ie radial alignment but very few understand axial alignment and fewer work to ensure both are absolutely dead nuts.
    It takes so little to do it perfectly.

    Its nature's way of telling you to stay the fuck away from them.

    No worries Bert, I get it.
    In your experience, can such a POI shift be somewhat normal/acceptable?
    From my reading it seems to be on the extreme end, but not unheard of...

    I mean as much as that sucks, hopefully its a repeatable shift. If it is, then now you know how to adjust your dope for suppressed vs unsuppressed. If its NOT repeatable, then yeah, that totally blows and hopefully it can be fixed without having to chop off the threads and then re thread and crowned.... chopping it would be absolute worse case scenario tho, could possibly be fixed in a less obtrusive way.

    All right, after bringing the rifle to Fritz I can definitely add those butchers from Gunsmiths at Large to my no go list.
    Threads were out of spec, Fritz had to cut the threads off and redo it from scratch.
    But hey, what a difference!
    Went from 6 MOA elevation shift to no discernible POI shift.
    Lesson learned.
    Thank you all for pointing me in the right direction!
