    A lot less than a new rifle.
    Cost would depend on the barrel manufacturer, taper, bore diameter, length, twist, fluting, chamber (Example, your smith may not have a reamer for an edge etc.)
    Any way you put it, its less than or very near equal to the price of a new rifle depending on your choices of "upgrades". Plus you have a guaranteed shooter, in your specs, vs a factory rifle with questionable accuracy. You get a good one, or you don't.....

    You just ship it UPS.
    Your gunsmith of choice will have his own FFL. He can ship it strait back to you. No 3rd party what so ever.
    It's as simple as shipping anything else UPS. Add insurance, & no other hoops to jump thru. Call a smith & ask them.

    hart barrels (barrel,true,chamber) $750.00 out the door. The wait is the only issue with re piping, plan on 12 to 24 weeks depending on where you go. If you are getting ready to do it, you will not have it ready for the summer shooting season. Having said this it is well worth the $ and the wait.
