Re: Barrel Fluting

If you want to have a benchmark barrel fluted have benchmark do the fluting. If they won't flute a used barrel then it is probably best to not have it fluted.

Re: Barrel Fluting

Karl is great, but we don't recommend fluting after final install.

Yes we are button barrels and fluting before final install is GTG.
