Re: Barrel fitting / Truing cost
I just got a rebarrel back with a Pac-Nor 3 groove #5 on a Winchester post 64 from a 264 win mag to a 375 Ruger. I paid Pac-Nor directly and had them ship it to a smith in Salt Lake City and he did the rest. It only costs $25.00 to ship almost anywhere and insure it for $1,000.00 so a local smith is no longer necessary.
The gunsmith bill for chambering, truing the action, adjusting the trigger and refinishing the action and barrel was $380.00. I think the refinishing was $150.00 of that. It is the 3rd rebarrel by this particular smith and I have confidence he has done a good job. Will find out soon starting this weekend. It is important that you pick a good smith that you can communicate with, has good references and that you have confidence in.
PM a few posters here and ask who they recommend. I can't think of a better place to find better opinions.
