Has anyone ever had or used a Mcgowen barrel? I'm wondering on the overall quality of them. I looked at one down a bore scope when i was in gunsmithing school and was very impressed.
Last time I spoke with anyone who had inquired about their barrels they only produced button rifled barrels. At some of the "sale" prices they offer it doesn't seem like they've purchased the cut rifling equipment as yet.
I have four of their barrels and they all shoot excellent. The only issue I have had was that one of them took quite a while to break in. I remember it taking about 30 to 40 rounds before was broken in.
I have several, they all shoot great. About .6 moa is probably about the worst, .3-.4 is about the norm that I get. I have a 28" bull with a 2" brake chambered in 300 Wby for my new long range rigm they are hard to beat for the money.
They may have good quality, can't say for sure yet. But our barrel was throated incorrectly twice and they are currently working on it for the 3rd time. We sent it back 6 weeks ago and are still waiting for a reply as to the status of the barrel. Customer service is not their top priority.
