I would wager that it's less about the takedown mounting method being superior to the v-block design, and more about the takedown mount interfering less with barrel harmonics than the factory carbine stock. The very design requires the receiver be more solidly attached to the back section of the stock, while the front of the stock is disconnected from the back and thus can't apply upward pressure on the barrel. It's not quite free floated, but having the two sections of the stock separate is better than having the stock apply an inconsistent amount of pressure to the barrel depending on if you look at it the wrong way.

This! But make a new herkin' stiff cantilever mount that will not flex at all, requiring no support to rest on top of the reciever.

I still couldn’t care less about the take down feature and was thinking it could be a superior connection method for doing a switch barrel arrangement using a well anchored receiver in a more conventional one piece stock that could better utilise “interfering less with barrel harmonics”.

I may offer this service in the near future. I would like to get another under my belt before I do someone elses though.

Finished up the stock last night!

That would be a neat thing to have... especially with the second slot in the bag.

VERY nicely done sir!! I would love to have this done...I WILL have this done. lol
I, sadly, don't have that much experience with a lathe and mill but I have a friend that does and has threaded barrels for me in the past that could probably do this for me. I guess what I'm asking is what better details could I give him to help him accomplish this.
Thanks

Would you mind posting the dimensions for us? I'd love to have a machine shop do the work as I don't have the proper equipment!

Couch,

I'm also interested in having this work done. I'm specifically interested in having a replacement machined from a Volquartsen muzzle-weighted 1 in 9 twist barrel. The idea is to have a spare barrel in the bag dedicated to Aguila 60 grain SSS ammunition.

Did you temper/harden the barrel where it goes into the action like they do on the OEM barrel? May get wear if you don't.

Hey! Looks great!!! I want to do this but I need the measurements between the dots...
Could you please measure the distance between the dots?? That would be AWESOME if you could!
Do you know the angle between the 2 flat spots at the receiver end of the barrel?

And one more question, is the angle between the ejector slot and the flat spots 90 degrees?



Thank you so, so, so, much!!

Nolie
