    Barrel removal wellington

    I have a gun that i want to take the barrel off

    How hard is it to do it, does anyone in wellington have the tools to do it and willing to help me out?

    Or should i just go to a gunsmith??

    Thanks for any advice

    Tools will be rifle specific. What breed is it for starters, might help your cause.

    Do you want the barrel?
    If not get someone to dive in with a parting tool right next to the action. Undo by hand.

    Are you right in Wellington or up the Valley or over the Kapiti, you have good gunsmiths in all directions.

    Scott Trail (Featherston) or Mitch Maxberry (Hutt), pretty sure both of them should have tools for Barnard actions.
