Barrel question

This isn't a long range situation, but you guys deal with a lot of custom barrels, so I thought I would ask here. Is it an easy task for the popular custom barrel makers to reproduce the barrel contour on my Kimber Montana 84M? It is in 308, but I have contemplated a smaller caliber. My apologies if this is a stupid question, but the barrel is so petite, unlike the big pipes I see on here from time to time.

The folks at Hart Rifle Barrels will duplicate any taper you send them.

Re: Barrel question

I think any bbl maker will do this. For a fee of course.

Re: Barrel question

Most top end barrel makers can match a barrel contour you have. Generally your looking at around a $30 charge if they have not already done a contour such as what you want. Some may be a bit more, some a bit less, but this is pretty average.

Generally just send the old barrel to them and they will match it for you.

Re: Barrel question

Save the extra $30. Just take a mike and take a couple key measurements off your current barrel. any barrel mftr site will tell you where they measure there barrels and give you the key dimensions of their standard contours. Think you will find that they will be so close that the extra $30 is not worth it.
