    barrel chop and screwcut close to harlow essex

    hi,
    i picked up a rather long cz452 in 22lr and is just too long for in the truck id like to get it cut down to 14" and screw cut re crowned, but the rfd i use is trying to charge 95 and only do it to 16" due to headstock size so he is a no goer even half this cost is more than enough to charge hmmmn.

    any way does any one know of anywhere close to harlow essex who may beable to help? if the works good i have 2 other barrels i also want doing.

    cheers
    theo

    it's not 30mins if you want it done correctly. 30 mins to put in a three jaw, part off and re-crown at 11 degree.

    if you want the rifle trued front to back (four jaw plus spider at rear of tube) then clocked, parted, screwcut, crowned and re-blued if neccessary is at least an hours work. it would take me nearly two. plus it should go for proof afterwards. a thread protector afterwards may take 30 mins.

    you have to appreciate what you are asking for. would you be happy if it weren't trued and you had bullet strikes in the moderator? or wasn't proofed then failed somehow?

    Oh for Christs sake not that old bullocks again.

    As has been proven in a court of law screw cutting a muzzle does not require a re-proof.

    Yes the proof house want it to be so as they want the revenue however it's not what the actual law says.

    used Jo at cathill feller he was good and fair and yes Brithunter you are correct ,only work on the presure bearing part needs reproofing some say the barrel is,within this, but the act do's not say so .the only problem would be when you resell it if the other party is abit anal. the only RFD i came across was norman clark who would not do the work unless he sent it to re-proof , you can cut it yourself to min size in law but unless you have access to turning eqippment you will have to pay out some dosh for recrowning and screwcutting to center bore not barrel contour.
    14" i would go 16" with 45grain .22 subs .talk to Jo he will put you right
    hope this helps
    all the best

    Just found out Leech and Sons in chelmsford do them for 50. They will apparently do CF for this price as long as you don't want it proofed.
