Re: barrel decision, narrowed down

Although I have never done it, I am told that rebarreling a Savage is 'easy'. You need a barrel nut wrench and go-no-go gauge.

yeah, That's what I read too, barrel nut wrench, action wrench and a go gauge and it's good to go... The lazy and cheap part of my wants to send it in to Kevin because I know he'll do a great job, and I won't have to worry about it or buy the tools. The other part of me wants to do it so I have the experience, and so I can have the tools if needed later.

find out who the maker is of the barrel first,if it's a house barrel i would pass. also,you will need a little more than just a nut wrench and gauges. you will need a good barrel vise or action vise to do it right.

Kevin Uses Benchmark barrels because, in his colorful language, they are better than others (his opinion). I know the tools I need, been planning this for a while, going to make my own action wrench eventually anyway

Made the decision on the Barrel. Talked to Kevin Rayhill at Stockade and set up getting it done when he includes installation in his price, so I figured, for this one, I'll have him do it. It's going to be a 26 inch heavy sporter(.7 at the muzzle) Benchmark Barrel 1:11 twist. also getting an upgraded recoil lug while I'm at it.
