View Full Version : Well I did it....new barrel

March 12, 2012, 12:55 AM
Well I did it, I ordered a new barrel for my GPR from Lyman and it came in Saturday. And all the parts that should be there are there, and not to mention its beautiful. It came with a new tang, nipple, and sights. I know I have more in it now than a new one costs, but hey its new NOW!! :D Lyman is out of stock on the original Ramrods, so I'll have to wait on it but no big deal its for aesthetics anyway. I am going to experiment with the old barrel, I wanna try hot blueing.
