who provides the best services and turn around time?
trying to figure out my next barrel and curious if its cheaper/easier to flute a barrel over going with a proof light sendero
Reread what J E Custom wrote it could save much greif.It is normally cheaper and better to order a barrel fluted from the barrel maker. His quality standards have to be met even after it is fluted. (Some barrel makers void there warranty if you flute there barrels)
High-end barrels all take around 6 to 10 weeks for delivery so order soon. Some barrel makers, also have in stock barrels and maybe you can use one of these if it is the right twist and contour. (Delivery is 2 to 3 weeks).
The best barrels are only about $100.00 more than the cheep barrels but well worth the difference if you are going to build a custom rifle and spend lots of money.
