    May I ask which " gunsmith" marked that carbon barrel ? As I have seen similar marks in the past.

    Hi guys yea been braving that east cost wind, bloody hell at 115kg it blow me off my feet and into the bushes.
    Needless to say was was not the best trip only saw a couple of fat preg hinds.

    Abe did the rebarrel but used a Hardy barrel, apart from the barrel marks and the long wait the job seems ok as it shoots real well.
    I have had Dan do a couple of other carbon barrels and no problem.
