    You left out one barrel maker who has a tremendous amount of experience; and that's Mark Chanlynn.

    It may sound silly, but I just can’t interpret exactly what the heck a ‘Remage’ is. The term is used when talking about rebarreling rifles. RE-placement....damAGED barrel....??

    A Remage barrel set up is a prechambered , prethreaded barrel that can be installed by the owner at home with a few simple tools, and a few specialty tools . The tools required barrel vise, action wrench, go-no gauge set, torque wrench, and anti sieze lube.This is a basic list of the tools. The owner would then remove his old barrel, using the vise and action wrench (some times easier said than done) , then install the Remage barrel, set the headspace using the gauge set and tighten the lock nut. Then you are done you can buy several barrels and just use one action.Hope this helps.

    I understand perfectly, thank you! I have heard of many doing that with Savage, and more recently, Rem. 783 rifles with the barrel nut. I just had not heard that term before. That’s why I love this site!

    Trigger Tech triggers would be a nice trigger add. They are very nice and used all over the industry.
