Re: ? about Mike Rock 5R barrels

Hummmmmm "my suggestion would be to stay with proven comp barrel mftrs."

OK, lets see

Rock has been making barrels for competitors for 20 years, He has lots of wins with his barrels. M-24 Contract, BR records as well. He is a one man shop and does not have as many barrels out there. Hence he does not have a Big Name to associate with. Each barrel is drilled by Mike, reamed by Mike, lapped by Mike, cut rifled by Mike, and then finished lapped by Mike, and finally inspected by Mike and shipped to you or your gunsmith by Mike. Call Hart, Lilja, Shillen, Douglas, ETC, and ask them who made your Barrel. Probably some guy making $6.50 an hour who could care less about how it shoots. (not always the case)

Ive used every barrel maker there is. I have basicly selected on 2 that I go to. Mike Rock in WI and Gary Schneider in AZ. also Boots Obermeyer in WI when I can get them.

There are lots of good barrel makers, I just stick to getting barrels from the Masters themselves not the employes of Masters of the past. Get my drift???

Re: ? about Mike Rock 5R barrels

Len,
Hate to tell you this but Rock barrels are terrible. All this stuff from these guys is just computer generated drivel. I need a new handle for my jack-all, how about sending that barrel to me - so that I can do you the favor of keeping you from a lot of frustration [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] What are friends for - right! If you have any old long 700 actions laying around taking up space maybe send one along with that crappy barrel..

Oh, yea, and if you might have one of those POS McMillan A-5's or McHale stocks just lying around, and some of those next-to-useless Badger rings and a base, maybe a crappy old Badger floorplate assembly and I would even take one of your totally useless and disapointing NXS's, the 5.5-22 might be nice to get out of your life - plus if you have any of those unreliable Jewel triggers gathering dust...
Len, I don't mind helping you out, but since I am doing you this favor, maybe you could include a case of that barrel-burning, totally inaccurate Black Hills Ammo - match 175's will be OK.

Anxiously awaiting your parcel(s)

You are too late! I just bent it trying to jack up my tractor which is hung up on a stump in the woods. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

What is the value of a Remington .308 with the 5R barrel. It's the stainless heavy barrel with less than fourty rounds thru it.
