    Well itís not untrue...but thereís so many variables.
    In some environments wood is much more durable than plastic. In others, plastic is much better suited.

    You've stumped me now.
    Personally, I'd try it myself but I'm an odd duck that way.
    Buying the tools to do it yourself would be pretty close to the cost of paying someone else.

    That would cost at least a couple hundred. I think thatís a great price for the barrel.
    I would definitely go with the rebarrel. I think it would be well worth the cost.

    I'd say that was definitely shortened some time after it left the factory.
    I would expect a brass bead, not aluminum, if the factory did it.

    This may just be an artifact of camera angles, but it...

    Did you measure from muzzle to breech face or did you measure the length of the barrel once disassembled?

    The appropriate way is muzzle to breech face in an assembled firearm.

    This one is a bit over 6' long.
    It's hefty but not HEAVY. I'd guess aluminum.
