    Borrder barrels

    Hi there
    Anyone using any of the new barrels from borrder since they got taken over and moved to Birmingham and is the quality as good? Had a look on the net to see if they still supply AI but couldn't find anthing out my experience with the old bunch at borrder was first class service and workmanship do the new owner make the same top quality barrels? You probably guessed im in the market for a new barrel

    Cheers Matt

    we have been championing and using Border/ Sassen barrels now for some time. Adam and Lewis have worked very closely with us and and their barres are the equal of any that we have used . With the added benefit of being only 30 minutes away from our workshop. You are not selling yourself short by using one of their truly excellent barrels. Yours respectfully Mike Norris Brock and Norris Custom Rifles

    Top notch barrels, you couldn't do any better buying the barrel and having Mike Norris set it up for you.

    It's a pity that they don't sell barrels to the public. They weren't very helpful when I emailed them.

    It's not. Sassen is run by former employees of Border, they make button rifles barrels only, and found them very helpful. Adam suggested i call him and we talked at length about a project.
    A different company bought Border's kit to cut rifle. Not dealt with them.

    As far as I was aware Border doesn't exist anymore. Am I wrong?
