Thread: Barrel screw cutting

    Barrel screw cutting

    I may need a rifle screw cutting soon which I've previously only had done by Norman Clark and (frankly) I thought it was a tad expensive (and a bit far to travel).

    What is a reasonable price for screw cutting (5/8" x UNVF) and could anyone recommend a gunsmith in the Luton / Milton Keynes / Northampton / Peterborough / Cambridge area to do it?

    Thanks.

    I'm not in your area but for examples of price my local gun shop charges 60 and local rifle maker charges about 90, add postage if you can't deliver it

    Chris Blackburn at ukgunworks is a good guy to deal with

    It's not just the cut, it is ensuring the crown is good. Pretty much anyone could wield a die and make a cut, but you don't want your pride and joy ruined for the sake of 20
