    I am looking for someone that can re-bore and re-rifle a Gary Schneider 6mm 1 in 10 twist barrel. I am wanting to re-bore to at least a 7mm but not sure of the twist yet ,originally the barrel was chambered in 6mm mach 4 and has had about 200 rounds down the tube.I talked to Mr. Schneider and he said NO!!!!!!!!!!gun)

    If he said NO, then I'd bet you have a zero chance of barrel modification.

    I have had a barrel re-bored by Danny Pedersen at Classic Barrel Works. He did a decent job but did not lap it. It fouls pretty bad. Rock Creek said the would lap it for me. I am getting ready to send it to them for lapping. It shoots decent.

    I think it makes a difference as to whether or not the barrel was cut rifled or button rifled. I think Schneider barrels ar button pulled and that is a problem for re-boring. It's ok to re-bore a cut rifled barrel but button rifled is a different story.

    Danny may have a way of doing a button pulled barrel with good results, I dont know but you may be better off just getting a new barrel. Re-boring is more geared towards expensive barrels such as corbon wrapped barrel (so long as they are cut rifled).
