    I know that there has been problems with turn around times and i remember seeing a site awhile back where a gunsmith was working under ABS and wrapping barrels for them. whats the new news.

    Last time I talked to Mike at ABS they were packing up and moving out of Lincoln to near Great Falls, MT. He said he'd be in contact once he got settled, but.....:rolleyes:

    Their email is absbarrels@gmail.com if you want to try to get a price quote, estimated lead time, etc.

    Good luck,
    Brian

    I ordered 12 barrels (ABS) from Paul at Rock Creek in early Dec. of 2010. He told me I would have them in 30 day's, that the blanks where already made. That was before mike had moved. Since then Paul told me that Mike D. lost the barrels during the move. I called Paul last wk, and he told me he would be making my blanks in the next 2 wks, and that I should have the in my hands in late August early September. 30 day's to 9 months.
