The E.R. Shaw barrels have a decent reputation and they're cheap.

I think a Shilen, PacNor, Brux, Kreiger, among others would be better but also more expensive.

Re: savage 111 rebarrel help

Economy,flutting and muzzle breaks dont often get used in the same question=Lots of machineing.

Bought a Shaw 6.5-284 sporter barrel for the Axis from these guys. It shoots alright but is a little rough=Kinda like buying a factory Savage barrel?
Carefull buying savage barrels........ It can be addicting

Might want to check with Northlander,Sinarms and Gun Shack to see what they have available.

You should be able to find savage drop in shilen barrels prechambered on line for like $270.00. T think I have seen douglas fro around the same price also.

Stainless are little more.

I guess i sould add a little info, i'm a machinest, mill supervisor at a aerospace machine shop so the fluting and drilling isnt a big deal i can do that at the shop ( a little goverment work),i just want a good base to start with. i guess i dont really know the grades of barrel works. is plane blued a mild steel?i know stainless but are they 15/5 or 17/4, are they all chromed?, do they need to be?how does a growned end help? my theory in life is " i can make anything give enough time and money".

Re: savage 111 rebarrel help

Not to demean you or sound insulting but there is a bit more to barrel modifications than exists in most job shops. Maybe not machine wise but certainly experience wise.

I own a machine shop and I'd never undertake something like that because of the experience level involved. Why fock up a barrel when there are reasonably priced ones out there that require no modification on your part and a 0 percent fock up rate.....

I'm all about making stuff myself. I build live steam engines for a hobby, for relaxiation. Not barrels..... Stick with experienced builders. If you want to make firearm related items, reload your ammo.

Again not trying to demean you, just offering a suggestion.

Re: savage 111 rebarrel help

I under stand your point, i dont undertake anything i dont fully understand, or figure about 3 differant ways to do( or get myself out of).but i look at it like if somebidy else can do so can i, im willing to try and learn , i take the good with the bad.thats why you own the shop and i'd be the one running the machines. No intentions ment.
