Rick where did you get your information regarding tollerances of the VAR barrel? Have you actually measured them yourself? Or heard this from someone else?Originally posted by Stock Doc
If I had a choice on a shooter get the VAR. The value of these barels has risen since people finally seen there tollerances are better than a service grade barrel. With a Winchester the value is higher becasue of the name and maybe donw the road you will find a good WRA barrel for it. There are no Con's on a VAR barrel unless it is bent I have seen them with a bad muzzle still out shoot a good muzzled U.S. barrel.
Another note many are geting these to be legal at the John C. Garand matches and be close to a match barrel performance. Rick B
