Re: Schneider Rifle Barrels?

I'm sure there are things you haven't heard about Schneider, other than the hype you wanna hear...
I have one that shoots 'ok', it came with a gun, nothin special.
But having been screwed by Gary(who couldn't get an order right if his life depended on it), I would never again order one.
Too many better barrelmakers out there.

Re: Schneider Rifle Barrels?

Thanks for the feedback gang. Their shop is a hundred miles from my house, so I thought it would be nice to order the barrel in person so they would understand exactly what I want. I think I will skip it and go elsewhere.

Popapi, you mentioned the following after reading my post that those barrels wore out fast:

Which means you just heard (or, more correctly, read) it from me.

Then you replied back:

I don't know what else I can do to prove you've heard (read?) those barrels wear out faster than others.

Re: Schneider Rifle Barrels?

considering that the vast majority of stainless barrels are cut from 416 stainless steel (there are a small few that are using 17PH4 rearc melt and 15-5 [not sure about the complete alloy number on the 15-5]). The only real difference in the 416 steel used is the sulphur content. The more sulphur; the easier it is to machine. But you don't want a lot of sulphur in a gun barrel. I have not seen a Schneider barrel in quite a few years, and I doubt that Mr. Schneider uses an alloy with a lot of sulphur in the blend. He probably wouldn't tell us anyway! I never saw a Schnieder barrel pit much, and this tells me he uses a low sulphur steel. Schnieder does a fine barrel!
