Anyone know of a place in the Calgary area that would be able to turn a barrel OD smaller and part the end off cleanly to shorten said barrel?

I have three backs that I want to do this to for a project. I haven't measured anything yet so it's still in the planning/dreaming stage.

I never saw this post, Murky - I can also help out too if you want. I'll be practicing freak-boring later this summer as well.

Options are good thanks gents. I will post what I'm thinking here once I get everything out of boxes and measured.

Hmmm this might work pretty good with a few quick turns. The empire barrel set that I have, I was hoping the OD would be pretty close at the ends for the purpose. Pretty darn close.

These aren't mine but same thing (borrowed photo).

I have an old boxgun that has a bigger bore barrel. Turning these down to the OD at the tips and leaving a bit for a spring rest. And a bevel for the bolt and I think these would breath life into an old classic.

I'll get the camera out. Ran out of time tonight.

I think I can do that, once I clear a couple other projects off my plate.

That would be cool. It hasn't seen the field in ages. You'll have to take it for a spin.

Freedummy, what would you charge to Freak bore a barrel? I'm thinking about getting the barrel for my ANS X5 bored.
