All barrel vices are not alike and the ones with aluminum inserts are different depending on
the manufacture.

The one that I bought from brownells is capable of breaking "Any" barrel lose and with the
paper softeners grip is not an issue.

I have used a 4' cheater on the action wrench in order to break some stubborn actions out and the barrel does not turn.

I have tried leather,wood,rosin and even emery paper and the paper works the best with the
aluminum inserts.

I agree, not all vises are alike, I made my own and machine aluminum inserts as required, and I also like the paper for "grip" and protection of the bbl finish.

Re: Barrel Vise

It cracks me up watching that Larry Potterfield video. I bet my left (and right) nut that that barrel had already been removed. I want to see someone break an old WWII Mauser with wood blocks that easily.........I usually end up running a parting tool between the action and the barrel shoulder.

Here's the barrel vise I built...............

Re: Barrel Vise

OK Guys, I know what you are saying but I am still looking for the best Barrel Vise for breaking out Remington Barrels. Who out there would have one thats made with bushings out of aluminum. Is there anyone who makes a simple vise and when I say simple, that means tighten the crap out of it and it doesent slip. I am so tired of the barrel spinning even with Rosin or paper. I would really like to buy one that actually works like LOL!! Larry Pothead is demonstrating!! Who out there would be willing to sell me one?? Let me know, Thanks Todd DuBose

Re: Barrel Vise

BROWNELLS BARREL VISE!!!! For the second time. Tighted the FOUR cap head screws on the vise on a REMINGTON barrel, and it WILL NOT SLIP. They are built stought as hell and you won't get anything better without building it yourself.

+1 on "build it yourself" if you'r into rebarreling, you must be handy enuf to build one. Very easy yo do, I use 1.5" square stock as material to start with, simple machining to get the shape u need and "square",bore the bbl hole, and the alum inserts can be made by a high school shop class if you don't have lathe and mill.

Re: Barrel Vise

I just ordered the following steel from speedymetals.com



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1-1/2" {A} x 3" {B} Cold Finished 1018-12"
SKU: 18f1.5x3-12
Cutting Tolerance: Plus or Minus 1/4"
1 12 $26.49


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1-3/4" {A} Rd 6061-T6511 Aluminum, Extruded-12"
SKU: 61r1.75-12
Cutting Tolerance: Plus or Minus 1/4"
2 12 $27.12


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Subtotal: $53.61
Shipping (UPS Ground): $20.20
Tax: $0.00
Total: $73.81

I'm going to build a very heavy duty barrel vise that will mount in the trailer hitch on my pickup truck. I figure this is one of the most rigid setup I have access to and the action wrench will be down low where I can stand on it, or use my 3-Ton hydraulic floor jack if I really need some help!
