Successful people do what unsuccessful people don't want to do, you should find a way to do stainless efficiently, maybe price aggressively and go for volume? A lot of people have stainless barrels that would want this service, including me with my one piece dye boomstick. But I'm not desperate for it so I won't pay a ton to make it worth someone's trouble.

Edit: do you cut the internal o-ring grooves so the insert doesn't slide out when you take the barrel off? That's a nice feature
