I'm really reluctant to bring this up because posts like this have been done many times before and I know that it probably boils down to the work being done by a really good gunsmith. I know that Hart barrels was a really big name years ago and I haven't given them much thought here lately and have never owned one. An older fellow who is a very soft spoken & level headed person that I go to church with told me that he has owned Kriegers & bartlein and they shot really good for him but he has always had the best results from Hart barrels with work done by Hart themselves. I was really astonished by that. Like I said, I know that it's all subjective to work done by the gunsmith but I just don't hear much of folks running Hart barrels anymore like the were 20+ years ago. Would like to hear what other Hart barrel owners have to say.
