Squeaky doors get fixed first. Just keep hounding Mike to return your calls or emails. It takes a bit of pestering but he will deliver.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

I have a barrel on order with ABS, I have talked to mike several times with out any problem. Mike's operation is small and he handles hie own calls. Just leave a message with a number that that you will anwser in the next day or two (ie. cell phone) and he will call back. If he misses you you'll have to call back.

ABS was verey promp on my barrel. Getting a barrel from RC to ABS is a diffrent story. I placed my first crder with Mike Rock himself which he wrote on a scrap of paper which he promply lost so when the promissed deivery time came and went I called and his people had no knowledge of my order. Then RC sent the wrong barrel length to ABS 26" instead of 29". Then RC could't replace the barrel for a while becuse their machine broke. When they finaly got the correct barel to ABS they finshed their work n less than two weeks.

ABS has several other sources for cut barrels that can deliver much faster. I choose to stay with RC for the 5R rifiling and exclent quality despite long delays.
