Was wondering if any of you guys that have had a few rifles put together could give some advice.
I'v got a Zastava action I wanted to turn into a 338-06. I bought a Adams and Bennet barrel and was wondering about the quality (you get what you pay for). I would like it turned down to take off some weight and cut down a few inches. I was thinking it may just be a better option to sell the A&B and ship the action to Pac Nor for one of their barrels installed with the right contour and length that I want. Looks like they'd do it for $560 and that includes truing the action face, lapping the lugs, and truing the bolt face.
Pac nor Claims to have a 8 to 10 week turn around and I've heard that some of the local smiths have taken years to complete some jobs. What are you guy's experience with the local smiths? I'll keep it local if i can get good service with a reasonable turn around time.
Any have experience with a Adams and Bennet Barrel?
Is $560 a decent price for a barrelling job with the services that I mentioned included?
Any one have experience with Pac Nor?
