    Proof research barrel

    Hi, just on the off chance wondering if anyone has a new carbon wrapped proof research barrel (pref 6.5) they may part with.

    I can import one for you but given the current climate & exchange rate you will need to be really patient & sit down before you hear the price

    Ahh, yeah nah, that might be close to a Hardy carbon price, a wee bit on the light side even.

    The Proof carbons were around $1750-1800, given the current exchange rate they will be more, BTW 0.64 sucks for imports, great for exports but

    Jeepers!! Might need to rethink at that price. Hopefully all will be good though - I’m optimistic Greg 👍🏽. Thanks for the heads up

    I thought the SSG barrels were press fit and couldnt really be replaced?

    Yip, press fit in 1969 but technology & good engineering gives rise to things 50 years later 👊🏽.

    It is common to cut internal thread on a ssg receiver for a rebarrel .
    Rwt and B.pope like this.
