Re: Its finally time!!!
Being a member of the FCSA is where I have heard all the good things about the K-P barrels.
Skip Talbot is a big supporter of these barrels and if you know anything about this fine fellow, you know these barrels must shoot.
I am sorry to hear about your problems with Dan Lilja. I have ordered and fitted dozens of his barrels without a single problem ever.
Still his shop is still run by human power so there is always the possibility of error.
Knock-on-wood, I have not had a problem with him ever so I will continue to use his barrels and support a local supplier as we all should.
I agree that for +$400 you should get exactly what you ordered, no excuse for that, I am just suprised Dan let a barrel like that out of his shop.
All of the Lilja barrels I have ordered have been very fine finished inside and out. In fact, if the customer wants a matte finished barrel, I have bead blasted them as they come and they turn out great.
From what I have heard with the K-P barrels though, you are correct, they are good shooters at least in the 50 cal versions. Have not heard anything about the conventional bore sizes.
