First question: Does he have a barrel?

Mike in NC 03-02-2021 05:40 PM

Second question: How do you "snap off" the end of a carbine barrel?

Using it to break the steel straps on a pallet of ammo?
No wait, that was the other carbine....:rolleyes:

There was a 95% chance of posts asking for details, and a 5% chance of a post providing a solution to the original query. ;)

Yep - spot on .

Silly me :o I shoulda' known such a Q warrants 20 Q's in return , and no answer .

Like callin' the bank , the utility company . You got 1 question ; gotta' answer 20 in turn (for security , etc. ) . And "this post may be recorded for quality assurance and training purposes"

But at least "due to LIGHT post volume , wait time wasn't extended" :rolleyes:

I had Shuff put the barrel on my Rock-ola. Bit of a wait. I supplied the barrel.

Just sent you a PM that contains contact information for a shop in Asheville, NC that may be able to replace a carbine barrel. I think they did one for a friend of mine.

I see this dealer at some of the shows that I am at. I thought I had his card, but spent some time looking for it without luck. I finally remembered the guy's name and did a search on the net and found his shop's contact information.

This forum is different than a bank or water department. The subscribers aren't paying for any service, we all just have an interest in this hobby and share knowledge when we can.

Please excuse the question of asking how a carbine barrel "snaps off". A carbine barrel is pretty stout and I just wondered how that happened.

I am in my late 60's, it took me a while to remember this dealer's name.

Thanks Mike .

Just found out he's already ordered a barrel from CMP . 4 month service wait tho' , so he wants it done locally I presume ......

Said he bought it with a crack in it already , and posted this earlier :

Says he registered here , but cannot post ....................................

Never seen anything like that. Almost looks like someone put an extension on the end of a barrel that had been cut off. I doubt that barrel was an original manufacture barrel and looks like a Frankenstein construction. There were some carbines that came out of Canada that had extensions added to the barrel to make them a legal length up North. Up there, I think rifle barrels have to be 18 inches instead of 16 inches.

I asked, if your friend had a barrel, because I was going to offer to do it but I don't have any spare barrels. And getting a barrel in this time is tough.
But after Mr. K4k's post, not offering any help, why bother. It would probability get lost in the mail. i.e. stolen in Macon. I agree hand delivering is best.

GotSnlB28 03-03-2021 07:06 PM

Wow, I've never seen a barrel like that before. Like a thin outer shell over a machined down barrel? It doesn't look like the "extension" has any rifling so it may be just that. Any identifiable markings on it?

Inertord 03-03-2021 08:30 PM

That is bizarre. The other thing to consider is that he may now be unintentionally in possession of a short barrel rifle.

ACampComLegacy 03-04-2021 06:59 AM

This was the guy's 1st pic . Looked 'normal' to me , but 2nd pic above threw me ...
... and sight keyway slot in pic above looks 'original' .

Don't exactly look 'bubba' ...
