Hey Doc H, I've been reading the gun forums for a long time and just recently started posting. From what I have gathered and what I have read on www.jouster.com, the Danish VAR barrels are highly sought after by marksman. If you need further proof check the CMP website where it claims they are highly sought after by competetive shooters. Granted, they're advertising their product, but if CMP lied to us in their advertisments they wouldn't have the great following that they do. From what I can see in your last post you're not interested in the Danish Garand, the VAR barrels or anything else other than finding out Stock Doc's claim to fame. I, for one, don't care what his license status is to work on guns. I listen to what he has to say and weigh that against all of the other fine posters on this forum. No one here is a "Gun God" so sit back and enjoy the conversation.
