    Default Barrel question here?

    I picked up a stainless 300 win mag barrel today at a gun show. The seller told me who made the barrel and I don't remember for sure. I think he said Snyder or maybe Gary Snyder? Anybody heard of this guy and if so what have you heard? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Gary Schneider makes some of the best custom barrels available. They come standard issue on the T2K and many top NMC shooters use them as well.
    It doesn't matter what you miss them with.

    Default Here is

    another question to add. I can't find a mark of any kind on the barrel. Wouldn't there be some sort of marking on it, if it were a Schneider? Or is it possible it came from Schneider as a blank?

    Custom barrel markers stamp markings on the chamber end of blanks and these marks are machined off during fitting and installation. It's up to the installer to mark the barrel with any information required, like caliber chambered for, the gunsmiths name, owners name, etc.

    If Gary Schneider had installed it no doubt it would at least be marked with the caliber it's chambered for, it's the law and he being a competent gunsmith he knows it. All other markings are optional.

    Default Serial Nos.

    The only part of the gun that must have serial no. is the receiver or frame - the legal "firearm" by defintion.

    Some military and commerical manufacturers put the serial no. on the barrel also but I don't recall ever seeing a gunsmith mark the barrel with the serial no. of the gun.

    Default Any

    markings must have been machined off during installation then, this barrel came off of a Remington, 700 I presume. I guess with no markings all I can do is take the guys word for what it is.

    Probably bought by a hobbiest gunsmith, machined it himself for his rifle, and didn't bother to stamp it. I'd have a cast made of the chamber before I did much with it.
