McGowen Precision Barrels rebarrels a variety of rifles from bolt actions, single shots to lever actions. Below you will see a variety of rifles that we rebarrel. The models of the rifles are grouped together under the gunsmithing cost associated with rebarreling that rifle. Keep in mind that the cost shown below for rebarreling the rifle is the actual gunsmith work for chamber, thread, fit and crown. Below each rifle, or group of rifles, there are a series of options. The cost for the gunsmith work does not change, but the cost of the barrel and associated items will dependent upon length of barrel, material, contour (standard, octagon or fluted) and finish. To determine the cost of your rebarrel job, add the costs associated with your desired options.  Shipping and handling is not included in these prices.  

Please note that on all rebarrel work we require a deposit of 25% down prior to any work being completed. Also note that we do not normally take orders for rebarreling work without having the rifle in our hands. If you wish us to start your barrel and then call you when we are ready for your rifle, we would require the same 25% deposit. If you decide to cancel your order, prior to any work being completed we'll refund your deposit. If we have received a rifle from you and you cancel your order prior to any work being completed we will refund your deposit minus shipping & handling charges to send the rifle back. If we have started work on your barrel we will refund your deposit minus 15% restocking fee and (in the case of having your rifle on hand) shipping and handling charges to send your rifle back to you.

Fluting (Step 4)

Fluting can improve performance in several ways.  First, it removes material and therefore weight.  It also makes the barrel less susceptible to overheating.

Octagon (Step 5)

Our octagon barrels are cut on a CNC Machining Center allowing you to dream up your own facets.  From traditional eight sided octagon barrels to dodecagon (12 sided) barrels.  We can deliver your dream barrel.

Finish (Step 6)

McGowen Precision Barrels offers 4 standard finish options.  Our basic finish on our stainless steel barrels is a beautiful polished finish.  We also offer a bead blasted matte finish on our stainless barrels.  This changes the look, and can also improve barrel cooling due to increased surface area.  Our Chrome Moly barrels are offered in both traditional blued finish as well as a matte bluing.

Also Note: Squaring and Lapping the receiver and bolt face is not included in the pricing for rebarreling.  This is an extra fee as we have realized over the years that not everyone wants this process done or to pay the extra $85.00 fee.  If you’d like your receiver squared & lapped, please include this fee into the pricing.
