TOOK THE LEAP!
« on: December 04, 2021, 04:20:45 PM »
i ordered a 40 cal barrel from Rice, 44" long .875 at the breech and 3/4"" at muzzle and got a Sugar maple stock out at Weaders to do barrel channel and r/r groove. maybe i'm going a little overboard with this. i goofed

Hi....what are you building? Your bbl specs are probably a misprint....7/8" and .875 are the same. What's w/ the previous build?....Fred

Terry, I like your style!

Does Rice have a name for that barrel profile?

Haven't heard of Weaders who is that?

Thanks!

I'm used to scratching the barrel channel and ramrod out a little at a time but thinking of trying a different approach. I like dealing with Jason and will check with him next week for a barrel.
