10 years of shootin sounds like a good investment to me.

That sucks you had to FL the barrel. I've never heard of a Douglas needing firelapping before. Atleast it only needed the last 3 fine grits.

    You could see chatter marks in the bore, couldn't feel them though. On the bright side it takes 2hrs tops to clean now instead of 2 days.
