Get in the Groove with a Custom Barrel

July 27, 2011 – 07:05 pm
to get them to move! Most shooters dream about having a custom barrel installed on their rifle or handgun.  But are custom barrels all that they are cracked up to be?   First is the cost.  A good barrel will cost between $300 and $600 dollars installed.  Most rifles will have to be re-bedded to fit the stock to the new contour of the custom barrel.  A finish of some type will have to be put on the new barrel and in most cases you might as well have the entire gun refinished.  While you are having the new barrel installed, you should have the action tuned up and squared.  And last, you need to decide on what caliber and type of bullets you are going to shoot, so the right rate of twist can be made.  You can’t expect a 30 caliber barrel to shoot everything from little 100 grain bullets to heavy 200 grain bullets.  If you are going to shoot small bullets, the twist might be a 1 in 12 inch twist or if you are shooting long heavy bullets, the twist will have to be faster and may end up a 1 in 9 twist.  You can also change calibers at this time.  Just because you have a 30-06 rifle doesn’t mean you have to keep it a 30-06.  You can change the caliber to a 25-06, a 270, a 280, a 35 Whelen or how about a wildcat like a 6.5-06 Ackley Improved.  The range in what you want to do is only hampered by how creative you and the gunsmith can be and how much money you want to spend.

Got it in 68 with 12kmi.I put an Abarth exhaust onit.It had a hardtop for the winter and was warm and dry.In the spring I would take it off and drive with a tonneau cover so only the drivers area was open with the top down.The heater on full blast and I was comfortable.I put in a Blaupunkt AM/FM which was a bog deal back then.I has a bookshelf speaker for the rear seat.I would tune the radio in FM between stations and it would pick up the ignition system.I would accelerate with just the front speaker then at 4krpm turn on the rear speaker.It sounded like a jet taking off,especialy when I was stoned.
