Recommend a gunsmith for fluting an existing barrel?


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I'd like an existing factory barrel shortened and aggressively fluted, in the interest of maximum weight saving without compromising stiffness.

Can anybody recommend a gunsmith for this?

Thanks!

Cam.

Dolphin gun company did one from me several years ago. Although that was an aftermarket barrel. 
 

what make/model rifle are you looking to have the work carried out on?

 

I

currently have a 16” .308 with a very aggressively tapered barrel. Very light weight and provides very acceptable groups.

Well you'd be fully defying physics there. Not possible.
