    Default 1919 barrels?

    I've searched for going rates on barrels and they seem to be all over the place. Sarco shows "excellet" bore barrels @ $125, "good" @ $65, and "got wet rusty" at $20. Gunbroker is all over the board.

    So what's the going rate? I am looking at .30-06 barrels mainly.

    Also, does anyone know what those "got wet rusty" barrels look like? Rusty outside, rusty bores?

    The bores are most often usable to great condition. Seems that the norm is 7-8 good barells out of ten. Sometimes they turn out to be Izzy 8mms. If they do send them to me.

    Izzy 308 ????, 8MM usa made ??? I think ..
    not too long ago I got nice ones for $19 each. I would realy want to see the $20 rusty ones. how is the rifeling, that is what would matter to me crome lined, rite, maby rifeling is real nice on some of them, refinish the rest.
    you would need to be thier in person and do your own hand pick..

    I personaly got rid of my 8mm conversion because it never worked rite, and clearly was going to continue to damaging parts, others had good results. go figure.
    I am off the page for extended times due to job requirements, not gone forever

    I was looking for the 1919 barrels as a cheap source for a .30-06 project I will be starting up this summer. I figured they'd be the cheapest source. I can always get ready-to-chamber barrels from Midway or buy something from Gunbroker already chambered. Just trying to do this on the cheap.

    Yeah that's the problem

    I don't think there's any way around it. Since I can get the unchambered blanks at Midway for $80 there's a point where it will be easier to buy and chamber it vs. buyin a take-off from Gunbroker.

    for a project a blank will be better, the 1919 bbls are a real bitch to turn. plus you will have the threads and notches at the back. starting with a clean slate is usually better ans you will have the advantage of getting the headspace right with a blank.

    Pirate I hear ya! I've resigned myself to that, but I'm just trying to delay the inevitable lathe work that that entails - very tedious to do a barrel with a 7x10 mini lathe

    That "aircraft" barrel looks nice! I wonder what are the dimensions. About the same as Gunbroker prices but would be a good candidate.

    trying to turn a 1919 bbl in a mini lathe will really give it a workout, these barrels are really tough to cut.
