But I am curious about a few things-as I am about to spend over 30k on an MG42 (hopefully in the next few weeks) and considering some of your barrels to add to my laager-personally I think the price is fine as a gunsmith normally charges about 250.00+ to rebarrel a gun.
What specifications are they built too? are they reverse engineered in all dimensions or are you working from a blueprint spec.?
Which headspace are you setting them too? There are different headspace specs for the various 7.62 NATO weapons. as there are 8mm (at least 2 possibly three seperate specs). I am assuming you are aware of the differences in 7.62N vs .308.
Are the barrels proofed? or test fired? I don't want to turn my soon to be MG into a twisted hunk of metal; for a semi auto build I can accept an oops-but not for a very expensive MG.
What is my re-course if something does happen? This question is for your protection as much as it is mine.
Please don't take this as a flame, it is not meant as an attack.
I just am genuinely curious.
