Re: switch barrel gun does anybody use one ?
When you say switch barrel do you mean it was designed to swap barrels out or do you mean that you want to switch out a barrel?
If it's a true swap-a-barrel gun just follow the MFG's instructions.
If not I would find a good smith in your area that,
a.) knows how to true up an action
b.) has done more than 1 or 2 rebarrels
While it can be done the first time you try it with success. The odds of it being perfect are slim, no slam on your abilities but what you are talking about doing is pretty close to building a motor from a short block with out ever seeing one done before. It get's exceptionaly fun if your changing calibers which require a bolt modification.
See one, do one, teach one. [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
OBTW the reason I say get a smith that can true up the rifle is for the simple reason that since the barrels is off you might as well go the distance and get everything lined up perfectly as opposed to hoping the factory did it right.
Proceede carefuly in the dark.
