Re: Shilen sold?
I ordered a .416 cal Select Match through Brownells Aug 31, 2006. Normal delivery on special order barrels is 6 to 8 wks. Brownells says 2 to 4 more weeks, making it about 20 weeks total, if I get it. I knew something was wrong. I hate to hear about the messups on Maico's barrels, because I have been using Shilen barrels preferentially for about 5 years on my customers guns, and got my first one in 1972, built for me by a friend. That barrel was incredibly accurate, and is still in my family. Rifles that I have built with Shilen barrels have all shot better than 1/2 moa, including a #4 contour in .340 Wby. I just received a .284 x 9 that I am going to really check out now.
Thanks for the heads-up. Tom
