Looking For Feedback On Richardson's Barrels
Posted 04 April 2004 - 09:13 PM
The repros have a tendency to be problematic and would like to know if Richardson's barrels have any problems/issues. Also, any idea on the expected barrel life (number of rounds)?

The barrels offered by IMA at this time are as good a vintage barrel as you will find today, original flaws & all.
Aftermarket a barrels will be of whatever quality the maker puts into them- if you know the source, you should be able to get a barrel of far superior quality than any early barrel, or not.

I have one of Doug's barrels and have had no problems. Its has '21 style fins, the finish is flawless. PK is correct, he uses a NOS M1A1 barrel as a blank and turns the fins to the '21 or '28 style. Get one if he still has any left, you won't be disappointed.
