Thread: Another Completed Re barrel

  1. #1

    Another Completed Re barrel

    Well, it's taken while to get to grips but no complaints thus far!

    Rebarrel chambered in .243 Winchester...it shoots like a dream!


    Any comments welcome, I offer screw cutting, barrel shortening, re crowning, chambering etc at very competitive prices!



















    I'll be opening a shop front in the near future if all goes according to plan...

    The muzzle thread and crown look nice. I see you are using a 4 jaw chuck, which is good. How close do you dial your tolerances, and how do you support the other end ?

    Show us some photos of the re-barrel please, I am curious to know your method for cutting the tenon and the chamber.

    Regards.

    How can this 243 be "shooting like a dream" if you haven't yet cut the extractor slot?

    I clock in as close to zero as I can...maybe 1-10 of a thou using my DTI of my pin gauge, the rear has a 4 bolt spider attached to the spindle bore or I have used alloy sleeves which I bore out, this has worked very well.

    I use a 60' (partial form) single point threading tool for the thread, I also use a positive tip to turn my depth and then a parting of tool for my under cut. For the chamber I take my measurements from the action and bolt face and the old barrel if it's the same calibre...I made a floating reamer holder from a no3 morse taper which works flawlessly! I use my No go/go gauge for final fit allowing for a couple of thou when tightening the barrel.

    My lathe is a very tidy Harrison M300 with metric lead screw, the dials show very little back lash so haven't bothered with a DRO.

    Ill sort picks out ASAP.
