    This is my first for sale ad on here, so I appologise in advance if I mess something up...

    First off...I am an honest guy, so I will be 100% upfront about this barrel to the limited extent of my knowledge about the item.

    I have a second-hand, slightly used 26" Remington 700 heavy barrel (Sendero/Varmint contour), that is factory chambered and stamped for 7mm STW (Shooting Times Westerner). It is a 6-groove, 1:9 twist.

    I do not know the round-count, but was told it was extremely low. The bore and rifling appear to be excellent from what I can tell looking down it with a bore light.

    The chamber has some VERY light surface rust on the shoulder, which will be easily removed when you have the barrel fitted to your action, since the smith will have to true the chamber, by cutting it back a couple thousandths when he sets your headspace. So, that's nothing to worry about. But I still posted a couple pictures of that anyway, just so you can see the light surface rust. The rust was in the chamber when I got the barrel.

    There are a couple very small blemishes in the finish that appear to have been put there during removal, but can be covered by the stock when having your smith re-install and fit the barrel. There's also a couple light scratches in the finish.

    Also, shooting me a PM is alot faster way to get a response from me, than replying in this thread. So, the first person to send me a PM with an "I'll take it" and their PayPal and shipping info gets the barrel. That's the fairest way I know.

    $150 shipped & insured TYD.

    Here you can see all 6 of the rifling grooves, and see how they're very tall, which means it was shot very little, and that the rifling is in perfect condition.

    Bump...

    This barrel should be a shooter with a couple turns of the reamer and proper headspacing.

    If it doesn't sell, I'll just keep it and buy a blued mag action down the line, and have a 2nd 7mmSTW.

    I've decided to keep the barrel for now, my appologies to anyone interested.

    I might re-list it later on, but for now I'm gonna keep it.
