Lilja will make the barrel and he has smiths you can send it to, to install and bed it.

Or you can have Master Class stocks bed it once ANY barrel maker makes it and any gunsmith installs it.

I'm slightly biased...but for good reason. If you want your entire system to work as smooth as silk,


Go with Bartlein for the barrel. You won't be disappointed.

Stick with a major manufacturer like Lilja, Kreiger, Bartlein, Broughton, Rock Creek, Pac-Nor etc and you should be good.

As far as a smith, what is the rifle you want to have this work done on and what's the rifles purpose?

Luck for us, there's now a Precision Rifle builder in Northern California. His company is called Spartan Precision Rifles.

Marc Soulie is in Concord. He's built a number of rifles for the members of the NCPPRC, not to mention for myself, Wooger & other NorCal guys.

Marc's number is 510-755-5293.
