Yeah folks do it. Personally I'd never knowingly own such a barrel. I'd never feel safe with it. The welding process to apply the lug to barrel and the proper treatment of it afterward is perhaps the single most critical step in making the barrel as far as safety is concerned. If too much or too little heat is applied or if it isn't properly heat treated and cooled afterward it can be dangerous and could separate on firing.

The process of removing it no matter what the means and then adding another in place compounds the chances of problems. For me personally I'd trust no one to do it and me fire it afterward. Neither TC nor SSK will do that I'm quite certain.

In your case I've already given the advice I'd follow in our PMs.
