Relining a Browning SA-22



Log in to see fewer ads
Hello I bought a Browning SA 22 that has a slightly bulged barrel that someone must of had a stuck bullet in it. I want to get the barrel relined to fix it since it is an old Belgian Model. Does anyone know of a gunsmith on the west coast or in California who does this? I know that Redman does it but I wanted to know if anyone has used them or recommends anyone else.

Where is the bulge? I wouldn't reline unless it was pitted and rusted out. Can you shorten a couple inches and have the sight set back? If the bulge is past 16 inches you should be better off not having to deal with a liner. The gunsmith in Ripon does good barrel work.

It is about 8 inches from the breech. So cutting the barrel down is not feasible.

I understand your desire, but a bulge at that point might not affect accuracy.

Yes, how does it shoot? I agree that you might lose a little velocity but I doubt the accuracy will be greatly reduced. A reline may introduce heat impact shifts or other problems with two different materials in contact.
