Maybe that screw is made of some kind of exotic BS ..like depleated uranium...or maybe the o-ring is the reason for the xtra cost... :eek: :eek: :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

The whole purpose of the setscrew is to stiffen the front of the rail so you can use the front groove. That brass round head blocks the front groove. If he'd cut the head off and slot the end of the screw for a tiny screwdriver, he'd have something.

Thought everyone needed a look at this ignorant thing.
I dont think it ever was an Ultra rail, but just a standard rail that got drilled. From the prices looks like some more drilling will be going on. :wink:

Poor folks have poor ways sometimes....I'm one of um but surely he could have come up with something other than what appears to be a brass cap screw..... :roll:

Well actually.....

:eek: Man, you guys need to lighten up! Why so hostile?

I never expected it to go over $100. Big suprize to me. By the way, as far as the "ignorant" thing is concerned, Mac11700 - what is so stupid about it? The idea of the set screw came from the very folks who post to this board. So I guess we are all ignorant. Or Mac11700 are you just mad because I might make a profit or something.

The brass screw will not rust or corrode, will not mar the barrel surface and looks much better than a plated machine screw. I had planned on blacking it, but never got around to it. It can be replaced by any standard 10/32 screw if the new owner does not like it. And, the scew head does NOT block the groove.

The rail is a standard Handi rail, don't recall ever using the term "ultra" anywhere in the description.

Hey guys, don't toss my salad. I've described this barrel as it is. Some folks just want a barrel without the hassel of sending off their reciever and waiting several weeks. They are paying for that convienence.

This is a good barrel, that shoots straight, sold in good faith. I just wanted to get my money back for it. Tell you what though, now I'm tempted to put my .308 barrel on also!

Looks like auction fever...

Good on 'ya for gettin' some money out of the deal.

Hope the buyer stops by to learn about his or her purchase.

I am always amazed at what ebay prices are. SOmetime you get a real deal, but sometimes....
threepdr, I hope it goes higher for ya. I'm glad cookieman wanted to keep his 243 barrel in the family though.

Personally, I'd sell to you all first, then ebay if no takers. Can't turn my back on family.
