Dosent do much for the bottom end of a Custom Gunsmith. I would think they would talk you out of it, but Stan at SGR Custom sugjested it to me. He is one of the listed Smiths @ www.6mmbr.com

    Has anyone ever seen a swithch barrel, used one, Pro's and Con's.........??

    This is not meant to be negative, It is just a comment.

    The first thing that happens if you talk someone out of what they want you end up with a very unhappy customer.
    You should advise and talk about all of the pitfalls if the person wants to go a certain way but not tell him unless it is
    unsafe. Call it a cop out but if a smith builds what the person wants after being told of the possible problems
    they should not have any complaints with the Smith.

    I tried this a long time ago and found it to be to much trouble for the "Savings".

    I also tried the contender way and saw no advantage in it. After a while I ended up with almost
    a dozen complete pistols. Now I am down to a select few that I like to shoot/hunt with.

    The rifles rifles definitely did not impress me. They were never ready to just grab and shoot,
    and it seamed like the one I wanted to use was the one that was apart and I would have to
    tear down the one that was shooting good,assemble the one I wanted to use and then re sight
    it in before going hunting/shooting and hope the accuracy was still there.

    Everyone should probably try the switch barrel route at least once and then decide for themselves.

    It was definitely not for me. I would rather have one rifle ready to go than two that were not.

    Just my Opinion for what it is worth.

    Here's one for ya. I've got a barrel nut for a remington 700. Same style as on savage, just threaded for remington barrels. If you would be interested in it I'll sell it to ya. I myself am a one gun man. (700LTR .308) Some day I might make a dedicated varmint rifle, but it does everything I could ever want it to do without packing a wagon out in the field to haul it around.

    Can do.



    Pacnor sells them for $65 and then shipping gets added into that. I'll sell it for $60, and I pay the shipping. It has never been unwraped from the packaging and it has some sort of packaging grease so it doesnt rust.
