Thought I had struck gold. Found 3 nos .30-06 barrels at a yard sale yesterday. Everyone had the chamber cut off.

Hopefully is wasn’t too bad of a gamble. I learned a very expensive lesson on barrels with a Colt Python I purchased at an auction.

I always wonder what the Sick Perverted Bastards look like...whose job it was to cut up tripods, barrels, servicable weapons. I'm sure that they tortured small animals in their youth. Bastards.

Still, perhaps not worthless. Dimensionally, what is left ? Can you make something else out of them ?

Seems like this was a discussion not too long ago.
A batch of Browning barrels were offered by someone and all had the chambers cut off.
It must have been in the DoD demil instructions.
That 2 volume set covers the demil of everything from bayonets to B-52's!

Agree, that was a standard demilling move during the Clinton years.
Remember all the M-14's they chopped/crushed?
All it takes is a cut off saw, and you can chop off the chamber end at a rate of one a minute.
These chut off NOS barrels were chopped and sold back in the 90's.

I'd be a buyer on these as barrel blanks for other purposes.

Sorry to hear that I just saw this thread and I hope you did not lose too much money on this? I had to cut up a bunch of guns for the DEC down in Virginia once and posted pictures here to tease a few members but they were newly made and nothing with any historical singnifigance.
