Questions regarding rebarreling a Ruger No.1

I want to rebarrel a Ruger No.1 to 7mm08. I have a few questions for those who have rebarreled one of these rifles.

1. Who made the replacement barrel?
2. Who did the install?
3. Would you use the same barrel/installer again?
4. What was the turnaround time?

Shilen Barrel.
I did... a #1V in .220 Swift.
Yeah... I like my workmanship.
A weekend.

Now... knowing that the above answer is completely useless to you and you're looking for a good #1 smith... I recommend McGowen Precision for both the barrel and the gunsmithing. They'll do a first class job on your #1 with a very fair price and good turnaround time. They make a premium barrel too... so it's a one-stop-shop deal.
