For reasons it's unnecessary to go into here, I need to re barrel my Scout in 7mm-08 I don't want to re chamber it - simply replace the barrel. I understand that getting the thing apart is a PITA but the putting a new barrel in isn't likely to be that difficult. I don't know any gunsmiths really - other than screw cutting I have never needed one. I have plenty of rifles that I just haven't molested over the years. Out of the box, scope on, zero and away we go. The current barrel is plain blued steel and I'd like to go stainless with some masking black coating probably. I'd prefer it to be fluted and screw cut in 1/2 UNF at about 21" long.
The alternative here is getting rid completely and starting with a new rifle and it's not going to be cheap either way I know. Truth is that the Scout stands out in my collection and at times is the perfect set up.
So thoughts and contacts appreciated if you can or know of someone who can do this. I have a spare barrel on my ticket
I'm in the East Mids in the Sheffield, Notts, Derby triangle. Just to reiterate - I am not after a list of gun shops, I need a contact for someone that you know could do this please.
