Anybody used a Bartlein barrel yet??

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?

Several months ago I spoke with Greg Tannel (Gre-Tan Rifles) about barrel makers and he is now putting Bartlein's in his top choices.

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.

Iv'e got two of them in the shop right now, just finished a 6.5-284
I haven't tested it yet. Second barrel is 6-284.
They both look real nice.

Does anybody know if Bartlein offers fluting as an option? If they will flute a barrel, anybody know what they charge?

Thanks,
