I was talking to Dan at McGowan barrels and he said he would make me a 17 mach II barrel and a 22lr for my 455. No one seems to have 455 barrels in 22lr available. ive got the 17hmr for an american i found at a lgs. my rifle came as a22mag. Has any one used McGowan barrels I was wondering how the accuracy is with them.

Lilja's had replacement 22LR barrels for a couple months now. There's a few threads about them including 2 of my own. Last time anybody talked to him the Mach II barrels were a ways off though. He wanted to get the HMR barrels out first.

I've never even heard of McGowan barrels. Much less shot one. I couldn't tell you whether they are accurate or not.

I did a little searching after seeing this post. It appears that some of the older barrels where not so good. There are new owners of the company and they appear to have made improvements in their process, and have gotten some good reviews. Probably not up to the quality of a Lija, but not bad nonetheless. As I am very interested in the possibility of a HM2 barrel for the 455 this may call for more investigation. :D

On their site the pre-fit barrels are going from $245.00 to about $388.00. Maybe Schnable will pop in and let us know what he was quoted for 455 barrels.

I see he posted while I was typing. I for one will be quite interested to see how things go after they get the patterns made. :D
