Do you still have the "Collar"? I need one for measurement purposes. And may I say "WOW". I hope my project comes out that nice!

This was a Springfield Armory Barrel (S A 56) that never had a collar nor was it designed for one as far as I can tell. This was one of the first if not the very first Mann project ever done. I obtained the barrel sans receiver and alocated one of my own 03 receivers that had already been drilled and tapped. The only thing I would change or improve is the weight distribution. It is VERY nose heavy. On the other hand, you don't feel any recoil and even after shooting all day long and doesn't really get more than mildly warm. the barrel acts as a huge heat sink. The receiver is fully bedded in aluminum epoxy and the barrel is floated full length except for the 1st 2" next to the receiver.

Thanks for that bit of insight. Really appreciate it. I am headed in a direction where I intend to turn on a lathe the barreled receiver to convert the existing collar into more of a spacer. I plan to bed the action and the first couple of inches of the barrel as you have, taking advantage of the increased diameter of the barrel in the section where the collar formerly was. I took some pics of the current project & stock which I plan to post tomorrow.

Wow, best one I have seen done yet.

Weighs more then a BAR though LOL. I bet it's exceedingly accurate.
