    Default BAR barrel swap.

    I have two BAR Type II .338 rifles.
    1989/1990 vintages.
    I am, and have been for 40 years, a .264 Win Mag fan
    I am considering swapping one of the barrels out for a .264 Mag barrel.
    Same case.
    Any ideas?
    are these barrels hard to find?
    I have seen a complete BAR .264 for sale, but I am interested in a barrel exchange...rebarreling only.
    thanks...bill

    Welcome to the Forum. Good to see you here. I am not the best one to comment on this since I had a BAR in 300WM when they first came out and had nothing but trouble with it. It went to a local smith and also back to the factory before I gave up and sold it.
    Anyhoo, IIRC these have a gas piston so you should be ok as long as you have the correct one.
