Thread: Where can you get .303 barrels from?

    Where can you get .303 barrels from?

    I am fearful that the no4 may need a new un. Anyone found a new barrel recently?

    Lothar Walther may well do them

    Fultons Of Bisley would be my choice if keeping it as is /as was.

    Might try Norman Clark as he bought a lot of the P-H stuff at the close out auction. Also Armalon has the P-H barrel plant so they can make a new one for you I would think.

    Also Fred the Armourer at Bisley had a load (NRA) but that was over a decade ago I spoke to him about them now.

    I would have said that at one time however after seeing how they bodged the fitting of a firing pin and nut to my Swedish Mauser nd nut I would not recommend them. This was a repair after over pressure factory PMC ammunition broke the pin. The ammunition importer was eventually paying the repair bill and as the incident happened on the Running Deer range with Mr Glaistor as a witness I followed his advice and took the rifle straight to Fultons to deal with. That was a BIG mistake.

    Fultons are not the same as they once were, sadly

    There have been quite a few horror stories lately & I know of more than one person sold a gun that should never have left their premises

    I'd give Norman Clark the job, as has already been suggested
