    Re barrel

    Hi guys who is the best gunsmith in New Zealand to supply and fit a barrel for a rifle at competition standards ?

    6mm Krieger or Broughton 27" 1-8 twist is what I'm after?

    Try Mike Collings in Whakatane. His dad used to also supply and fit Kreiger barrels.

    MC is off to USA for Palma so probably not for some weeks, but worth a shout.

    Tony Titheridge is your man alright. PM me if you don't hear from him on here (TonyT) as I have his details
    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more

    +1 for Dean Maisey. When I was looking to build my last custom rifle I visited Dean. This gave me the opportunity to meet the guy himself, look at his shop (immaculate and extremely well equipped) and look at some of his work. The decision then to go with Dean was too easy. Sure there are many others around (an some not too crash hot as well) who are only a courier away but I preferred to be able to do the personal thing which included dropping off all my bits and discussing and agreeing what it was that I wanted to achieve, and then collecting the finished product. I too live about 2 1/2 hrs drive from Dean. I have also used Scott Traill for a trigger job (EM332 superb result) in which case I did't need to visit his shop and sent the job via courier. Scott too has a very good rep.

    How did you get on with Tony Tightridge, did you achieve the result you were after?
    I'm thinking of getting a re-barrel job done myself and I'm looking for a good 'smith'... only 'accurate' rifles are of interest to me too!
