Heck of a buy sir - I bought the same a couple of months ago for a shade over $200. Am in process of converting to 16" carbine barrel (why did they discontinue Super 16?)I got a 14" TC Mach II on close out the other week for $139.00 ,couldn't pass it up.:t --JMJ--
they'll still sell you a high gloss bbl but it costs extra from the custom shop .Thanks for the replies!
I was thinking of getting a 17 HM2 for my next barrel. I was wanting to see how everyone else shot with their barrels. I still looking as to which brand to buy. I looked at a .204 Ruger barrel at Cabela's. The finish on the new barrels is not as good as the old ones like back when I bought my Contender in the 1980's. I like the old gloss barrels a lot better than this new stuff that is being sold now.
Contact MGM for a quality barrel, if your wanting a 14inch barrel with match quality chamber, you can get it from them for about the same price as T/C's custom shop and they will build it the way YOU want it. And if there's a problem they'll correct it quickly with no problem. The last custom shop barrel I purchased was a K-Hornet 15inch high gloss blue for the Encore which cost me $350.00. Just ordered a 14inch full bull 22lr match barrel for the Contender in Stainless with a stainless scope base added for $310.00. This will be my 4th barrel from MGM in the last year with more to come SOONthey'll still sell you a high gloss bbl but it costs extra from the custom shop .
I was reading Dean's post, dated 4-21-2008 and knew that there had to be a missing photo, so I clicked the edit button and there was a missing huntingpictures photo.I have a 15" OTT barrel that will shoot 1/4" groups at 50 yards.
