Was overall pleased with the barrel, a 38-55, honed. The bore is immaculate. Overall the machining was good, but with 2 exceptions. One side near the breech on a flat, there was a deep gouge, where a tool stopped. This has to be worked around in threading and fitting the barrel to the receiver, as it is too deep to sand out. On the other side, opposite, there were some abrasions, which will have to be sanded out, more than the rest of the barrel. This looks like a handling problem. The barrel was nicely wrapped and packaged. I appreciate the quick response and the pleasant ordering I received. I remain happy with the barrel. Thank you.
