4D offers a wide variety of barrel tapers.
4D Reamer Rental LTD. has expanded what they offer for shooters and gunsmiths once again. Not only do they offer Savage pre-fit barrels in most any caliber, or twist. They also stock a small supply of barrels on the shelf. See: http://www.4-dproducts.com/sales.php?category=Barrels+on+Hand
Here is what’s really new:
Recently, they started a new offering of chamber work. 4D will rechamber your barrel for Savage barrels as well as many single shots, like NEF rifles, TC Contender or Encore barrels, Rossi single shot rifles can all be reworked to new larger chambers. If you have some other barrel be sure to check in before you ship it. 4D will be glad to answer your questions about this service option. They will not accept a complete firearm, this is barrel work only. For $99 they will rechamber your barrel.
If you have always wanted to try out an Ackley chambering, or wanted a caliber the factory does not offer then this service is right up your alley. With over 600 reamers on the shelf it’s likely that 4D will have a chambering that will interest you. The gunsmith doing this work for 4D has over 30 years of experience in chambering and barrel work, so you know the work will be done right, no guessing. For the complete list of calibers go to the 4D web site.
Barrels in both Blue and Stainless material are available if your placing an order. Custom orders take more time than barrels on the shelf.
Fred at 4D tells us that this service came about because they often get calls from folks who want to rechamber a gun but do not have any experience with chambering barrels. So it seemed natural to help out such potential clients who were either short on time, or worried about the process. “We offer more chamberings than any other Savage barrel vendor out there, and we can extend that to the single shot barrel market too.”
The barrel blanks offered by 4D are made by three makers, McGowen, Green Mountain, and Criterion. Delivery times vary by maker, and prices vary a little as well so check in with them for a quote. 406-752-2520 hours are 9-5 Mountain time, Monday to Friday.
