This is like a NASCAR driver worried about driving a truck in dirt. You have nothing to worry about...... Oh wait.

This is one of those things where I've always been curious what makes this operation so difficult? Being a non-machinist I tend to think that compared to other things I've seen done, enlarging the ID of a barrel seems simple... Not being a wise-guy, I'm legitimately curious as I've seen many airsmiths and machinists shy away from the service.

cause when you screw it up its probably going to be big. Thats likely to screw up someones lovely match ano barrel or irreplacable rare as hens teeth type thing. Not to mention that most barrels aren't nice and smooth like a phantom barrel.

I don't like to risk other peoples stuff. in fact I hate modifying existing parts. If I make a mess I have to replace it which is likely a whole lot more than I was going to make off the job in the first place.

Its a bit of a pain to set up but running them isn't too bad. I did a bunch :)

4 x 11" phantom barrels
1 x 6" phantom barrel
1 x 14" cocker bull barrel
1 x 12" enemy barrel.

you are now a jedi master beyond reproach.

if your brilliance allows, my liege, pm me a price for a chop and re thread on a lapco barrel. (front threads for the muzzle not the breech threads)

It'd be cool to have someone willing to bore barrels in Canada.
