Hi JR. what would be an approx turnaround time be at the moment for a rebarrel/cerakote.?

Hi,

It’s hard to say at the minute with all the delays. For me barrels are roughly taking 4-6 weeks to arrive, and proof about the same. My last batch were 6 1/2 weeks at proof. Then my time to get the work done which is a couple weeks or so.

A tough one Jack

On stuff like that I’d be running a .090” undercut .010” forwards of the action face to relieve tension on the barrel 

Works a treat 

 

Remys are notorious for being pigs to get off - they use some kind of loctite that compensated for the poor threading jobs ,,,,,

Do you use heat?  Most Loctite products give up at 300C .  I wouldn't think that sort of temperature would cause any metallurgical issues (with steels).

Yes i normally part them off too, especially blued howas. But both lathes were tied up with jobs, so i just had to get medieval on it 🤣

This had a nice mix of loctite, rust and carbon. 

😂

I avoid using heat, there is no need for it with these. And it avoids any damage to the bluing or heat treatment. The main issue is gripping the barrel well enough in a normal barrel vice, the stilsons take care of this.
