    If you remember I sent my barrel back to have the tollerance adjusted because it would not chamber a round. Well I got a call today that they received an empty box with a big hole in the side. They said they would send me out a replacement without any hassel. I had a 20" Stainless Bull, which they said they were backordered so I paid the difference and got a 20" stainless Fluted barrel which would be in stock in a couple weeks (kinda wanted that one anyway ;) ) Great company and great to deal with :bowdown:

    imagine sending in a barrel that got obstructed, some asshole UPS worker steals it, installs it, and blows his gun up sending shrapnel into his fucking face :bowdown:

    I will get my fluted barrel and I did request the test it before they send it out, it will chamber and I will be happy. I have about $500 or so tied up into a gun I have never fired :hs:

    UPDATE - got the fluted barrel back yesterday and put it on and it wont chamber either, spoke with GMRB just now and I am sending #2 in to do what they were gonna do on the first one. I asked and they use Federal Gold to test, and my barrel had been tested, I am using Federal Automatch and they said there should not be a problem... hoping this time it makes it there and I can get shooting with this rifle

    I am about 1" from just selling this rifle and buying something else :hs:

    If you recall in your other thread I suggested you get a hand reamer to cut the chamber youself like I did. Something like $24, sometimes you have to do the job yourself.

    What did the 20" fluted cost you with shipping. I've had my 10/22 for 8 years now, and i'm about ready to make it a tack driver

    T-25 and factory 10 rd rotary.

    I can put a round in the barrel, but the tip of the bullet has a little resistance.

    They said they used Federal Gold, I might go buy some this weekend.

    I bought my 20" bull barrel at Rimfire sports for $101 to my door, and sent it back originally for the same issue, well it got lost/stolen during shipment so I spent $35 more to get the fluted.. they are prolly around that and Rimfire sports seemed to have the cheapest prices

    I had to wait 2 weeks for my replacement barrel, so they usually are backordered
