    So long as the bolt matches the barrel chambering it should be gtg.

    I once bought a barrel from CMMG. (300 BLK) I didn't have a set of gauges for it and assembled the gun. in the process of assembly something didn't feel right. The barrel extension and barrel weren't tight. The barrel was a full rotation out of the extension with the locator pin loose in the hole. Since then I follow the trust no one approach and check everything regardless of manufacturer after assembly.

    While stationed at Ft McClellan I watched the armory swap barrels on the training weapons. No gauges in sight. The Sgt, I think he was a sgt, any way he told me he fires a few test rounds and reads the cases. Fwiw.....

    When I replaced the barrel on the Service Rifle used in High Power competition I debated 'gauge or not'.

    It boiled down to I had to know. Bought a set of gauges. Followed the YouTube instructions from Brownells. 10 minutes later I knew I was good to go. That alone made it worth it for me.
