Re: remington frankenstein
john, I think this method will be cheaper to go with a machine shop. In the spirit of the post I want to add I called around to local machine shops to see if they could give me a quote. First it was hard enough to find a place to custom orders, the next difficulty was finding a place that did small custom orders. Well I found that place that is only 1/2 mile away. Who knew, I thought they were out of business, turns out they moved and never put a sign out. Theres good advertising for ya. Anyway they gave me a quote of $25 dollars to cut the shoulder and finish the threads out the barrel. Not bad considering the local gunsmith wants to charge $65. The other machinists were wanting to charge around $45. So bargain shopping came through. The added convienience of being close is also nice as well. The next question is does anyone have a barrel they would like to donate to the cause that the throat isnt shot out on. I do not care what the surface looks like, it can have scratches and dings. Just not bent. I can even recrown it myself if needed. Something in .243, 22-250, .308 since I have dies and brass in those calibers.
