    I have a kreiger 7mm 9 twist 5r barrel blank in palma contour (i think). thinking of selling it to fund some other things. what are they worth these days?

    Cheers

    @Kiwi Greg might hazard a guess at this.
    I've bought a medium/heavy Palma contour Krieger 13 twist, 28" finished length, for an F/TR build.
    I think the barrel (unused), has been taking up shelf space at a mate's place, and it was probably cheaper back when.
    DED's were selling MAB barrels in 308, on TrashMe, for around $500-$600 in #2-#4 profiles, 26" & 28" in the white, you chamber for your cartridge.
    Shilen's recommend lopping an inch off each end when finishing their barrels.
    So - somewhere between $500-$1,000 I guess.
    Depends on length and if it's already got a chamber cut.
    No help I know, but it's only worth what someone will pay for it.
    Cheers

    Have a look at the US price, add $50-80 USD for postage, the same for the export permit assuming you are getting a few, then a sensible margin, then the exchange rate, the some customs & brokerage fees, about $50 Kiwi, then GST on the top....so any where from $800-1100 depending on exchange rate etc

    If someone wants one NOW the price range Greg has quoted will work. Otherwise if they are OK with a l o n g wait they can source thru NZ gunsmith for around 700 depending upon profile and length and xchange rate. A Kreiger (like yours available right now) or similarly a Bartlein should attract a premium price due to their quality and difficulty to obtain. Your barrel is worth more than a Truflite (better quality and cut rifled) and more up somewhere around what Dan Hardy charges for his. Last 7mm Shilen 31" I bought was around 700 bucks and a 33" Pac-Nor was about the same. Previously paid around 650 for 3 Liljas.
