    Default Barrel threading needed - Before Xmas

    I have three Howa 1500 barreled actions, 20" 6.5mm heavy barrel, that need 5/8-24 threading for muzzle devices done. I still have to bed them, and sight in, and all before Xmas.

    I know what is involved, and am having a hard time finding someone that can get this done in less than the "3-5 weeks" gun shops and smiths are quoting.

    Anybody here an accomplished machinist or know a place/person that can do a proper threading, concentric to the bore, and not rape me for $125 per?

    Live in Denver, and will travel anywhere within 150 miles to deliver.

    If you’re willing to ship, LongRifles in sturgis, SD does top-notch work.

    I ordered a barreled action on Tuesday, and it's already shipped.

    I have a friend just south of Parker who does all of my barrel work.
    Great guy. He’s a former 18C and trained gunsmith.
    Has his own onsite shop.
    He’ll do a great job for you.
    He said to give him a call.

    Dave did a top notch job on the three rifles. Going to be taking him one more to get done.



    The three bolt action rifles.

    He does bedding also, which I planned to do myself, and he gave me some pointers on inletting.

    Give Dave a call and mention that you heard about him here.
    He cut down and rethreaded my 9mm Sig MPX barrel. Came out great, no problems.
