Re: Lawton Actions and Barrels

I use Lawton bbls on my custom rifles, my 338 snipe-tac is a Lawton, shoots sub .5moa. Barney's personal rifle set a new NWSA record for heavy gun class last weekend, 3.743 ten shot group at 1000yds. It was chambered in the 300 Barney
(30-404 Jefferys) "One shot kept it from setting a world record" Barney told me.

Re: Lawton Actions and Barrels

Barney is a great guy to deal with and his products are top notch. His actions are a great improvement over the blueprinted 700 route. His barrels are hand-lapped and shoot fantastic, and the proof is in the shooting, two new records set, one with one of his actions and the other with his action and barrel. But you guys don't have to jump on board, as a matter of fact DON'T, because I hate having to wait in line behind others for great barrels. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Lawton Actions and Barrels

We use Barney Lawton's actions and barrels.

The barrels slug out perfect every time - no matter the contour, and the bore finish is excellent. All we have to do is to thread the tenon, chamber, crown and finish coat.

The actions are, for me, a dream come true. I also hope that everyone else stays loyal to whatever action manufacturer they have been using so that my lead time on my orders continues to be fast.

Kirby, just ordered my Lawton M8000 action. I went with a Lilja barrel instead. Kirby has had good luck with the Lilja barrels on his 338 Allen Mags, so I decided not to change what has been working for him. I am sure he will receive the action and barrel before the McMillan A-5 stock arrives.

Re: Lawton Actions and Barrels

With the way mcmillan is going i am sure he will recieve the bbl, action, bases, rings, scope, trigger, corn dog, milk shake, and go on a few hunting trips and maybe have class reunion before he gets the stock!!!!

At least you arent stuck with every thing but the damn bolt waiting for your rig to get done.

I am sure you will be happy with the lilja bbl, Kirbys seems to be doing alright!!!!

take it easy

Re: Lawton Actions and Barrels

Lerch, that is funny!!! I laughed pretty hard after I read that. McMillan takes sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
long, but I guess their worth it. Maybe Kirby has some pull, LOL. I can't wait to get this rifle Lerch, the 338 Allen Mag is an awesome round. I hope you get your 338 AM soon!!! I am really looking forward to hearing how she shoots. I am also looking forward to exchanging load data.
Have a great evening!
