I worked in a precious metals machine shop once for a while. Did conventional lathe and milling on platinum mostly, parts for Star Wars program in the Reagan era. Never ran CNC but mebbe learn one day. First thing you need to get and know where to look in for info (mainly speeds/feeds) is the "Machinery's Handbook". Not cheap but no machinist worth his salt would run without one. I'm on my second one( first went in 1972 flood). For rifle barels you need a long bed and decent swing. Some of Grizzers machines are marked for gunsmithing tho the higher priced ones look the most capable to me. Maybe find a used one on Craigslist or something.
