Ok guys,

I have gotten a ton of calls and emails wanting me to make switch barrel barrel stubs, and your wants and wishes have not fallen on deaf ears...

Switch barrel barrel stubs will be made from the H&R, T/C Encore and CVA Apex. Others may be available as dictated by requests...

Short and to the point. Here is an H&R set up as a switch barrel, with the included barrel lock nut and pin. I have work to do, so I will let the pictures speak for themselves, and as always, if you have any questions, just ask!

Oh, before I forget, I can also set these up for Savage pre-chambered barrels and save you some money and me a lot of time. And yes, there is a cartridge size limit on doing these...

I wish I could, but I do not have an export license. I have checked into getting it, but with only one or two calls a year for shipping to Canada, it is cost prohibitive, plus all the proverbial hoops one has to jump through, and even more so with anything firearm related...

Thank you Derek, but it is not really anything new. I have done this quite a few times over the years when someone would ask for it...

This use to be popular for the T/C Encore years ago, when guys were experimenting with the smaller types of varmint cartridges...

I had one customer who wanted a full series of Bench Rest cartridges on the Encore, and this was the least expensive route for him to go, and get everything that he wanted...

I have done the same thing with the H&R, and set up a full series of TCU cartridges for just one gun. I did a ll the machine work, and the customer did all of his own forend work, which saved him some money, and allowed him to personalize things just the way he wanted...

Most guys set their barrels up to not include an extractor, and as long as they don't load hot loads that cause extraction issues, plucking a case from the chamber is no big deal. They can also set headspace for their own brass and dies, which makes for greater accuracy potential...

Hey Dave,

I have no less than half a dozen Savage take off barrels, and I would like to know how I could incorporate their usage on a TC Encore barrel stub.

Thank you for your time Sir and thank you for the work that you do.

Hey Joseph,

first off, I would need an Encore barrel from you, so I can bore out and thread the stub, and get it ready to accept new barrels...

After the stub work was finished, I would then need to make a lock collar, that would fit between the stub and barrel. You would need to let me know if you wanted the lock collar set up for a rod that is inserted into it to loosen and tighten the lock collar, or if you wanted it set up for use with a spanner wrench...

After all machine work is completed, you send me a pre-chambered Savage take off barrel, along with a couple of full length resized cases to use as headspace gauges. Then I'll take that barrel and turn the appropriate shank on it, and thread it to fit your barrel stub. Once set up, you can remove and re-install it as many times as you want too...

All of the information concerning your barrel stub is recorded, so I can machine any other barrel that you send in, to perfectly fit your barrel stub. I would need a barrel and 3 full length resized pieces of brass, or 3 factory rounds to use as headspace gauges, and with that, I can set up as many barrels as you want...

I cannot do any magnum or belted cartridge. I can do any short action cartridge that is 308 based or smaller. I do not cut an extractor slot in these barrels, as the cases are easily removed with your fingers, or if the case is small enough, like 223 in size, you,can hook the rim of one case in front of the round in the chamber, and very easily remove it that way. Any by not having to fool with an extractor slug cut, it saves me time and you money! It also allows easy headspace adjustments without having to worry about the exact position of the extractor slot...

To machine a barrel stub and lock collar is $125 plus the cost of a wrench or extended rod to remove the lock collar...

Every pre-chambered barrel that is sent in for machining to match your barrel stub is $125 plus return shipping...

Any other questions, just ask!

Hey Dave,

I may have looked over it, but do you prefer to work with stainless or blued barrel stubs? Is there any difference between rifle or pistol barrels for a stub? And lastly, does the barrel caliber make any difference?

Thank you again for your time.

Hey Joseph,

me personally, I prefer a blued barrel stub, but either one will work fine...

Absolutely no difference between a rifle or pistol barrel when making a barrel stub...

Any centerfire caliber can be used. It makes no difference...

Hey Dave,

my dad and I are going to send you a barrel for a barrel stub. Mine is blue and dad's is stainless. We are also sending 4 Savage large shank barrels that are already chambered in 204 Ruger, 223 Ackley Improved, 300 Blackout and 45 acp..

Dad just got back from ups and the receipt shows that you should have everything on Tuesday. We included extra shipping and you should have enough left over to take your wife out to dinner. We know this is a busy time of year, so we will see our new barrels when they get here, so no rush on our part. We also included 3 full length resized pieces of brass for each barrel.

One thing we forgot about though, how do we set up for a forend?

Thank you!

Joseph

Hey Joseph,

if all of your barrels have the same taper, then you can get by with using just one forend...

You can have a forend made by Tony Gettel or E. Arthur Brown. Tell them what barrel contour you will be using, and tell that you want a free floated barrel with enough clearance that will allow "2" business cards to slide between the forend and barrel, once the forend is tightened to the barrel. This will allow for a perfect fit and the only part of the forend that will be touching the barrel, is the two pillars that it will be resting on. Also, if one barrel happens to be a little bit larger than the rest, it will still fit your forend without any modifications to it...

Once I receive your barrels and get one of the stubs machined, a barrel installed and the lock collar made, I'll let you know the exact hole spacing so you can let the stock maker know...

I always use a 10-32 screw for the forend, instead of those wimpy little 8-40 screws, so you need to let the stock maker know this as well...

All information will be recorded, so if you send in other barrels to be fitted for your barrel stub, I can easily match the same exact hole spacing, so you will not have any issues with the forend fitting your different barrels...

Wow wow wow, just wow Dave!

My dad and I just got our barrels back from you and we are highly impressed! Your work is absolutely beautiful and your turn around time is second to none.

We were expecting and willing to wait months for our barrels, and when our mail person just handed us a package, we were both just floored and actually thought they were mislabeled and we're returned to us for re-shipping. Boy did we ever get a surprise. All we need to do know is get in our custom forends that we have ordered, then we can put these puppy's together and go shoot. Maybe we will get lucky and have our forends in hand by the end of our deer season.

Can I just send you a couple more Savage barrels that are already chambered like the last ones, and you set them up for the barrel stub you just finished for me?

Thank you so very much Dave, you are truly a master at the work you do!

Joseph,

glad to hear that you and your dad like the work I did for you. Thank you and thank you both for your business!

Dimensions are specific to each barrel stub, so I can make any barrel you send in, an exact fit from barrel to barrel for your stub. Turnaround time should be 1-2 days...
