emcon5@ thanks for the link. I will check it out. My Mauser barrel is looking a bit pitted at this point but not that bad. I haveonly shot half dozen rnds through it with a bad scope. I am going to take it tomorrow and see what I can get going out of it.
At the same time I will be watching the used racks. Several stores near me have many nice bolt turn ins. I am pretty suire its due to people trying to finance AR purchases.
