He'll order you whatever you want to pay for, but he gets the biggest price cuts on Douglas.

You can get Shilen blanks fairly cheap as well, if you're looking for chrome-moly barrels. Any stainless steel barrel blank will run you $300 and goes up from there. And that's $300 not including smith work (chambering, threading, cutting, crowning, fitting, etc...)

If you just want to go cheap, or are on a tight budget, go find you a new factory take-off barrel for $100 and have it installed.
Hey mud, would Douglas stand behind a (non satisfied) buyer..I have a #5 Premium that I DO NOT LIKE..three people have have tryed to get it to shoot after I installed it ..I would like to try another one.
