I'm lookinng to get a couple new barrels ordered and was wanting the 5R rifled bore , Bartlein makes them and their price is good , their quoted wait time is the same as everybody else. I talked to one of the guys for a bit yesterday and he seemed comfident that their barrels were as good or better than everybody elses , but that what they all say.
I like RockCreek but I'm a little leary of ordering with them as I've heard that they have some trouble lately getting their barrels out anywhere close to the promised time , also that the last few they have sent out were realy soft. Any of you guys gotten any barrels from they with no trouble??
What about ABS , have they started turing out any of their barrels again?
Talk to Frank at Bartlein. He runs the shop and has got his stuff together. Frank left Krieger with a couple of guys and helped in starting Bartlein. We've built 1 6mmBR with one of their barrels and it's a shooter. With Franks background, Bartlein is definitely top shelf.
