SL-68 barrels-The question

Im trying to locate extra barrels for my sl-68,and 68 special.I was told to get old Shocker barrels,and tuen them down,but having looked(online)at the shocker threads I dont see why they would be easier than say any other barrel?

Neither would I, also would the pumping arm fit over those barrels? I know some shocker barrels are "thick".

I don't know about the Shocker barrels but I've already checked and autococker barrels have a thread and pilot section that is large enough to turn down to fit the SL's. And since the barrel will need to be turned down in a lathe you can easily turn down the fat portions for the pump to fit over at the same time.

prolite barrels will be thin enough for the pump to slide over. and some spider barrels. but most barrels have a 1 inch diameter and you will have to bore out the pump.

I'm currently working on an Armson barrel for an A5 to fit an SL-68, so far it's working out nicely. Have you looked into those yet?

I'll add that option to the list. Thanks.

I don't see the exterior shape or size to be a big deterent. After all we need to lathe down the stub to fit the body anyhow. It's not a big deal to lathe down the outside for the pump handle. Or in the case of too small a barrel to make up a sleeve to fit over it.

I machined down a CMI Truflight but found that it was no where near as accurate as the stock water pipe barrel.

I did Lapcos for the SC version I built several years ago. I used a Pro-Lite Autospirit and Big shot
