A lot of people don’t realize just how prevalent barrel swapping is, but just as an example I have 5 Remington shotguns and 10 barrels, and I only have the one choke tubed barrel for the I know which barrel was original with what, but depending on how they are assembled when I die, I wouldn’t place a lot of bets on how some of them get sold And, Remington’s friendly “call them and they will tell you when it was made” service is highly unreliable in my opinion.

Wujing Zongyao , Four Great Inventions , List of Chinese inventions , and Heilongjiang hand cannon Based on a 9th-century Taoist text, the invention of gunpowder by Chinese alchemists was likely an accidental byproduct from experiments seeking to create elixir of life.

I found a great deal on a. I do not have an action wrench or barrel vise but yet didn’t want to risk twisting the receiver trying to get it apart without the proper tools. After staring at it for an hour that didn’t get it loose either! I decided to walk away and shop for a barrel while I decided what to do about getting it apart. It has the proprietary coating on it which tells me it was from a XCR.

I used a hack saw with a new blade and cut just in front of the lug, a groove down past the threads all around the barrel.

I then clamped the barrel in a vise, stuck a small piece of hardwood into the receiver and turned it off like butter.
Now, if I get real lucky, my new barrel will headspace correctly but I’m prepared if it doesn’t.

There are a number of methods by which a rifle can be dated, or at least bracketed between certain years of manufacture. For the latter, dates of introduction of military arms can be located within the Government “List of Changes” LoCs as can dates of obsolescence and of modification or upgrade to later marks. You may not necessarily find specific date information within the text of particular pages, but often the images of advertisements or catalogue entries contain some dating ‘give-away’, such as the year in which a particular rifle achieved a notable competition score by someone, but which data is in graphic format and therefore not “searchable” by a text search engine.
