changing barrels with Keppeler

Recommended Posts

Some experience in changing barrels with Keppeler. Is it complicated, can it be disassembled and easily changed?

I have observed how the barrel is removed at Keppeler.’s premises. The barrel is fastened in a vice and a piece of copper bus bar is inserted into the action’s ejection port. A hammer does the rest. 

The sides of the multiple locking lugs are probably too small for an action wrench.

It is not difficult, same here fix the barrel in a vise.
Since I have a square action I use a wrench, goes without saying, I protect the action for damage with either leather or felt.

However, doing it yourself, since it is not a switch barrel system (or any other reference to fit) you need to keep headspace in mind.

Regards,

Tec
