I have to agree with tender.
Made a big difference once I got more than 5 receivers. Any barrel I tried would lock up on one of them, often 2 or 3.
I have also bought complete guns however because by the time you add up barrel + Receiver + stock set it seemed I had quite a bit invested.
If I can buy the whole gun for just a little more than just the barrel I will.
But I have also paid 400$ for a .45 colt unfired barrel. And in my opinion, I stole it. And it was worth every penny.
Interests wide and widely varying.
Happily married 18 years. Retired on SS with lots of time to spend.
Started with .223 Ultra Bull barrel. Added .357 Talo barrel. Added an action and stock set bought here, 7.62x39 barrel. Then bought complete guns .444 Marlin and .300 Blackout. Leaving me at 4 complete rifles plus a barrel. Plus a 9mm stub job bought here, and I have been finding and buying H&R shotguns at our local pawn shop where they seem to go cheap.
