We aren't exactly covered up with gunsmiths around here who install barrels and like I said before, I have heard some reports from others that do little to instill confidence. I'm probably going to have to ship it to someone, so it doesn't matter if I am shipping it 200 miles or 2000. I don't want to get my rifle back with it looking like crap and having to face trying to get my money back then getting it fixed.
I'm certainly no expert but I would think that getting the barrel indexed would be more involved than indexing a muzzle brake due to the chamber having to be properly headspaced as well as the writing being lined up right. I could be wrong, though...been wrong a few times before!
