.41 Contender

Anyone know of a .41 mag. Contender barrel for sale or trade? Prefer 8" or longer, but not picky about the length. Have an older but like new tapered octagon .45/410 barrel w/expansion chamber & screw-on choke I don't need.

Before this thread gets shut down for being posted in the wrong place, here is a place to look for all sorts of 'Tender stuff.

Ed's is not far from home, so I've been by several times. I've never found his shop open. They say he's only open on Sat. mornings, but so far I haven't caught anyone there. Have called & left messages more than once, but no reply. Couldn't prove by me he exists.

By "They" I mean C&J Sporting Goods, the gun store next door to Ed's shop.

But Ed's sponsors the Contender threads of the site I listed, and advertises there as well. You can look on his site to see what he has.

To get Ed you pretty much have to call him and make arraingements to meet at his shop. He's a CPA by trade and just does the Contender thing on the side. You won't find better prices, a larger selection or a more knowledgable guy than Ed. This being tax season he's pretty hard to get ahold of.
