There are lots of good barrels available and depending on what you like ( Buttoned or cut
rifling)the choices are Badger,Bartlin,Broughton,Border,Brux,Douglas,Hart, Kreiger,Lawton,
Lothar walther,Lilja, Packnor,and shilen. That I can Think Of.
Cut rifling or buttoned does not matter if the barrel maker holds the tolerance .It is just a
different way of making barrels. I have had both and when they are right they are both
good. Hammer forging is another way to make a barrel but it is expensive.
It really boils down to what you prefer based on cost,quality and delivery time.
