Receiver is cracked. Barrel is for sale, receiver is done.

I'm wait listed for my Return Authorization from the custom shop to put a criterion on my 1917. In December they said it would be 3 -6 months. Currently have a JA barrel on the rifle and it appears counter bored. Muzzle swallows a bullet and the bore is smooth at the tip. Needless to say accuracy is not great. Thought long and hard regarding new vs used replacement.

Jim, Are you installing the barrel yourself or having someone else do it? Eddie

Default 1917 rebarrel

I am having a retired Marine Armorer, Gus of Gusís Garandís. He has done several and is willing to screw a criterion barrel on it. I have not been able to locate a NOS GI barrel.

Jim, The Eddystone Barrel and cracked receiver looks like a good alternative to a NOS barrel. However, you can't go wrong with a new Criterion barrel, my 1917 Remington has one and its the best shooting rifle I have. Regards,Eddie

Default 1917 Eddystone re-barrel

Placed the order for the criterion barrel thru the CMP estore today. I hope it will be shipped soon so I can get it installed by Gus in March. Thanks to all for your help with this decision. Gus says he will be able to change the barrel without cutting a relief cut to remove the barrel.

That's good to here. I replaced a 1917 barrel on a Remington I rebuilt for my son. The barrel was a sewer pipe. I used a hack saw to relieve the barrel shoulder and it came off without a hitch. Wish you good luck with your rifle. Eddie

I just removed a Eddystone barrel. Used a saw to do the cut. I have a Criterion barrel here and will mount it. They are very nice barrels and worth the money.

I had an Eddystone with a sewer pipe barrel. The CMP put on a new criterion barrel and I couldn't be happier. They did great work and the rifle is now far more accurate than I am.
