Hey all been pondering the idea of welding a piece of a tactical rail to the bottom of the barrel of my Charles Daly 12 ga. Semi auto. Was wondering if this have been done before or if anyone has any feed back on this procedure. I know that too much heat can ruin the barrel but it wouldn't take much of a bead to tack on a small section of a rail. The reason I want to do this is because my CD has the vent running the entire length of the top of the barrel and I can't find any type of rings that will clamp onto the barrel. I think if just the rail was there it would be easier to remove and install items of my choice, ie; flashlights, lasers, or even a bayonet :grin: Who knows what I'll do for right now. Was just curious.
