How much would you want for that 270 barrel?V-Hunter said:Thanks for the response! I am going to a gun show this saturday and there is an encore dealer there that sells and trades barrels. I am interested in the 223 and the 17 remington and will decide saturday if I will trade. My encore barrel is 24" and is 3 months old and shoots great, I just want a varmint gun and have no need for the 270. I put 240 rounds threw it already and it's not even broke in yet! I will let you know about a possible trade! Thanks again!
