Like I said just my humble opinion !
I agree that the barrel is one of the most important components in a gun build. That being said, if money were no option I would go with a Hart barrel like I have on my hunting rifle, very accurate. However, with my funds being what they currently are, I dont see spending $800.00 on a barrel that will only last me 2 years. So my original question stands, should I go with the McGowen, Shilen, or Criterion barrel?
