I have heard that someone bought Jim Goodoien's barrel making equipment and is now making barrels.  If true, does anyone have information on him?   I did a search, but found nothing.  Thanks.

Using my Google-fu I found this.

Yes, I have been gone for about 6 months.  Perhaps I just need to sit back, listen and catch up... Wink

I have been meaning to post this and now seems like a good time. I just received the 1st of 3 barrels that I had Charles Burton make for me. These are custom profile and 48" long in 45 cal.

First let me say that I am very pleased with the barrel I received and here are the reasons why.

1. My barrel was very well packed. This was the best packed barrel that I have ever received, and I have received a few.

2. The breech plug was properly fitted.

3. The barrel matches the profile of an original barrel that I gave Charles the measurements on to a tee.

4. The barrel has round bottom rifling and looks fabulous.

5. Being a custom profile it took a while to get, but I got it in the time promissed.

So boys I really hated to say all this because I know you all will probably load him up with orders and that will make it harder for me to get my next order of barrels, and there will be a next order.

Charles thanks for a good product.

Thanks for the great information and an honest critique of what is often a "micro-scoped" business.  I'll be in need of a special length barrel soon and therefore may be giving him a call.

THANKS AGAIN ...  Grin

This information needs to be made into a "sticky" or a permanant place so it's not lost.

A linky could be placed in the Parts, Supplies and Services section of Weblinks.  But that is really up to Dennis and Charles Burton.

I'll do that later when I have more time. That takes a little longer.

From what grade of steel does Mr. Burton make these barrels?
