Just wanted to share, always on search for spare parts, and took a chance on this, maybe you all know, R Guns has new old stock 1919 7.62 nato barrels at 75 Bucks a pop. So grabbed two, well look brand new chrome bore adding to spares, curious if anyone knows about these as can’t find any markings on them. Also what are thoughts as to having recut to 30/06 chamber don’t have one yet, cost ? Recommend anyone. Thanks

I think it's a good price.... Most others I've seen are $100 or over.

Yes I am. I have all three calibers for my A4(30-06, 308, & 8mm). I've shot it the most in 8mm, but that ammo is drying up. Probably gonna save the 8mm I have for other guns now...

I think they are Israeli made barrels that have been reparkerized. Bought a couple a few years age when they had them on sale. They do have a few markings if you look closely I think. Nice barrels, great value.

Just sent innards to Jeff @Iron creations for plate kit I bought, and playing with new to me Wiselite mg42/53 gen 1 fixing pre range trip **** Ugg learning whole new game on it, in between my fun cz26 and dreaming of a FAL, are there any Zoom support groups lol.

My barrel is typical parkerizing with chrome lined bore like every other Israeli 308 barrel I've seen.
