How can you tell the difference between a authentic Lilja barrel and a No-Name barrel?
All Custom barrels are marked on the breach end and or the muzzle end because of contour
or tapering and removed when the barrel is chambered and crowned.
The only marks that are on the outside of a custom built rifle are the proof marks or the smith's
identification/serial number for his benefit.
As stated there are a lot of hand lapped Custom barrels but trying to prove which is which
is very diffacult if not impossible unless you know the smith that built the rifle.
