Richard, if I ever made one, it would be odd indeed!

I did a search on "barrel makers" (including the quotation marks) and turned up this thread, but it's from 2011.  http://americanlongrifles.org/forum/index.php?topic=17494.0

Is that what you were looking for?

John Getz, Mark DeHaas, Jim Carpenter...two I'm not sure about are Jim McLemore and Oregon Barrel Company. The latter's barrel-maker had a stroke awhile back and I don't know if he is back to work or if they have someone else by now. Mr. McLemore told me last time I checked that he didn't think he would be taking any more orders but he did want to continue making barrels in small batches when he could - I don't think he was able to make any this last winter, though.

Isn't Buckeye Barrels the name of Barbie Chambers barrel company? I believe they sell several different makers barrels with the Chambers kits.

That’s correct, Mr. Dennis.  Barbie doesn’t make barrels.

No comprehensive list is complete without Hugh Toenjes "Blacksmoke" on the list.  He makes a fine bbl and guarantees accuracy.

Just when I think I know who all makes bbls, I hear of another pilgrim making a few. Most of them don't have any inventories to sell from, only lists/orders you can join. 

Tip used to keep a great inventory of ready-made bbls, but you'll have to call him as I heard that he told a FOF that he's not selling parts anymore, just guns.  I've not been up there in a few years.

 Oregon Barrel co.  Best barrel I ever got was from them. Very nice finish.

I am not sure if Longhammock is still in business. I know several of the builders that used to use their barrels are no longer offering them.
