Easily & Professionally Reline Rimfire Rifle Barrels In Your Shop; Made By One Of The Most Respected Names In The Liner Industry
There are untold thousands of rimfire .22’s over the country today that need only a barrel liner to bring them back to their original shooting abilities. Some of these guns are beautiful collection pieces, others are fine hunting guns and some of them are just “loved” by their owners who want them back to their original condition. Plus, a lot of shooters want to convert to one of the .17 rimfires. Brownells .22 Barrel Liners, made by Redman Mfg., are button rifled with ultra smooth, uniform finish and sharp, distinct rifling for superb accuracy that’s better than - or equal to - an original, new barrel. With the Brownell system, barrel liner installation is not difficult. It can be done with a minimum of tools and shop equipment. Your original investment is quickly paid off in the first few jobs. The instruction booklet gives complete, easy-to-follow details for either the old, classic method of soldering the liners in or, the more modern method of using ACRAGLAS® for the permanent bond between barrel and liner.
You’ll find that along with a relining, most of your customers will also want a blue job (Solder or ACRAGLAS will both stand hot bluing temps); a stock refinish and probably action work - “Make it like new” are the usual instructions. This, you can do.
When deciding to offer this service for your trade areas, you should also consider the price and quality of some new guns today and tightening up of your customers’ spending habits. By relining, they can often have a better gun for less money.
Barrel Liner Instruction Book details the systems used by gunsmiths Bob Schuetz, Willis Sprunger and Ralph Walker. Walker used a variable speed hand drill and ACRAGLAS to hold the liner in. Schuetz solders the liner in place. Sprunger extended a regular bit, drilled the hole in a lathe and bonded with ACRAGLAS. 8½" (21.6cm) x 11" (27.9cm). 16 pages. Instructions FREE, not included.
